Vegan Black Bean Dip

Posted by in 4th of July, Cinco De Mayo, Cooking, Snacks, Super Bowl Sunday | 0 comments














Hello & Happy Tuesday!






I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a bean dip person. Sadly, the only bean dip that we had growing up was typically the store bought canned option, which is needless to say just a terrible option. So today I’m spilling the beans on my favorite bean dip recipe, because it’s just so good! 


Bean dip gets a bad wrap for being just basic and underwhelming. That being said, I wanted to explore recipes to create one that was flavor packed and memorable. 







This bean dip is my go to for countless reasons. It’s quick, easy, affordable, can be made in bulk, perf for entertaining, essential for Cinco de Mayo, packed with protein and fiber, packs a lil heat, a lil acid, can be used as a dip or on tacos and more! 




If you’re searching for that staple bean dip to use all year round, you have to try my staple vegan Black Bean Dip!!
