Black Bean Dip

Author: Toni Anderson


  • 2 cups black beans canned or cooked from dry
  • 1 clove fresh garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste Start with 1/4 teaspoon each. My beans were homemade with no salt added, so I needed about 1/2 teaspoon salt.


  • Combine all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor.
  • Process until desired consistency. (I prefer it smooth.)
  • Top with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream and green onions if desired.
  • Serve with a variety of crackers, corn chips, or fresh raw vegetables.
