The Best Black Bean Dip

I felt like something a little bit different with my fresh veggies and this tangy black bean dip was the perfect addition of protein to fill me up with a subtle spicy kick.

I love having healthy snacking foods ready to go in the fridge.  It makes things so much easier on me, especially if I am having a bad day health wise.

This recipe is super simple as well and keeps well in the fridge.

Ingredients:

1 can Organic black beans, drained and rinsed

2 tbsp avocado oil

Juice of 1 lime

2 garlic cloves, minced, and sautéed until fragrant

Fresh cilantro, handful

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Sea salt, pepper to taste

BLEND OR PULSE SLOWLY, A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME UNTIL A SMOOTH TEXTURE IS ACHIEVED.

(ADD 1 TBSP OF WATER AT A TIME IF THE MIXTURE IS TOO THICK AND WON’T MOVE-I ENDED UP USING 4 TBSP OF WATER)

ONCE SMOOTH, TRANSFER TO AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER, AND REFRIGERATE FOR AT LEAST ONE HOUR BEFORE SERVING.
