This awesome and easy black bean dip takes only 5 minutes to throw together. Bring it to your next get-together or keep it on hand for afternoon snacking.
This easy black bean dip fits right in with my healthy living goals. When I first started including nutritional data and Weight Watchers points with all of the recipes on Cookin’ Canuck, it was purely for selfish reasons. The My Fitness Pal app and I were best buds and it was easier to satisfy my app buddy’s demands for calorie and fat information if it was right at my fingertips. Not to mention the fact that being aware of the nutritional counts in all of my recipes kept me on the straight and narrow.
You see, I’m a snacker, through and through. If I’m going to lose all control of my eating and willpower, it’s going to happen between meals. Darn those cheese and cracker!
The trick is this…use a salsa that you love. Do you prefer some zip in your dip? Choose a medium or hot version. If the salsa tastes great on its own, then it will be perfect for this dip.
Throw everything in the food processor, puree until smooth and serve up the dip with tortilla chips (baked or otherwise), multigrain crackers or raw veggies.
