This Spicy Black Bean Dip is the result of enjoying a delicious and dip at a local restaurant. A few days after having it, I got a hankering to whir up my own. This 8-ingredient spicy black bean dip is creamy, spicy and incredibly flavorful thanks to cumin, coriander, garlic and parsley. Serve it with chips and veggies or use it to top your favorite Mexican dishes!
How do you make spicy black bean dip?
- Beans: black beans, much like chickpeas, are the perfect base for a spicy dip. They’re a blank slate in flavor and offer an ideal creamy texture.
- Bring the heat: some classic hot sauce and jalapeno offer jus the right amount of heat.
- Add some flavor: coriander, cumin, parsley, onion, and garlic add familiar, yet undeniably delicious, flavors. Plus, you probably already have most of these on hand!
How to serve spicy black bean dip:
Exceptionally versatile, this spicy black bean dip can be served warm or cold and can be topped with anything from avocado and chives to roasted corn and jalapeños. Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy this spicy bean dip:
