Can you tell that I am a huge fan of snacking? The guiltless game day snacks section is probably my biggest category in my Food Corner. There is a reason for that though, snacking is one area that’s easy to overlook but the calories for a handful of chips here and some wings there can really add up. That’s why I am always looking for new alternatives to swap out those the fatty snacks.
(Especially with the playoffs now here- Go Patriots!)
I was loving this black bean dip at my local supermarket, so I decided to try and make my own. This recipe is not only delicious but super easy to make (exactly what I need). When I made this recipe I chose not to make it really spicy, but next time I might experiment with some chipotle in it.
Black Bean Dip Recipe:
15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, including stems
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
– Mix all ingredients in a food processor and pulsate until nearly blended. (If needed add a tiny bit of water to thin recipe.)
– Serve with tortilla chips, fresh vegetables, or pita chips. (I prefer Utz Blue Corn Tortilla chips)
