~ Easy Black Bean Dip ~

This Easy Black Bean Dip is creamy, packed full of flavour from chipotle powder and cumin,  and can be made in under 10 minutes!    Plus, it’s made with simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.  It’s delicious with your favourite corn chips or even as a spread for a wrap or sandwich.  You’re gonna want to make this one over and over again!

Hey everyone!  What’s up?  Surprised to hear from me today?   Keeping you on your toes, I   guess 😉  I just couldn’t wait to send this one to you.  Have you guys seen all the foodie videos going around lately?  If you follow some sort of social media (and unless you’ve lived under a rock) you probably have.  I said to myself –

Dawn ain’t makin’ no video.

Nope.

NO time for that.

I am NOT getting on that train<—really punch out the ‘not’.

Guess what?

I made a video!

What?!  Ok, let’s not get too excited.  It’s a video of me making this wicked black bean dip.  It’s definitely not going to win any awards or anything and I can already think of things I would do differently next time, but it’s a start.  Talk about keeping the ol’ brain goin’.  I mean, seriously, shooting this and learning a new program to edit.  Whoa.  I gotta sit down for a hot minute.  I think I’m getting too old for this, lol 😀

In all seriousness, I could not have done this video without my BFF, partner in crime, bud, husband, hubby, better half.  He totally helped me set everything up and even with the editing.  Plus, he counsels me when I’m just about to rip the hair right out of my head from frustrations in the kitchen, throwing something out the window or otherwise having a complete melt down over a bombed recipe.  He is quite the guy.  So thank you hubby.  Love ya!

And, a huge thanks to my friends Karrie from Tasty Ever After and Kevin from Kevin is Cooking .  I shot numerous  questions (ok, A LOT) at both of them.  I was seriously just waiting for one, or both, of them to start ghosting me<—-yeah, I know the lingo; I’m hip like that #NotReally.

Ok, moving on from the mushy stuff and let’s get to the dip.  Creamy, so-easy-you-can’t-believe-it Black Bean Dip.  I love this recipe.  It’s a new favourite  in our home and so so easy to make.  There’s no need to get your little butt to the grocery for pre-made stuff. No sir-ey.  Grab a few simple ingredients, throw it in the processor, garnish and boom!  Done.

Speaking of garnish, if you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know I’m a big fan of all things garnish.  I garnished this dip with tomatoes, grilled corn, green onion, cilantro, chili flakes and feta<—–told ya I love garnish.  And you’re probably thinking ‘Duh, Dawn, you don’t have to tell me what the garnish is, I can see it in your pics.’  Anywho….

If you don’t like a certain garnish or reaaaaaally love one, omit or add as you like.  My favourite garnish here was the corn because it adds a little texture and sweetness, contrasting with the spicy, creamy dip.  But, honestly, this dip is awesome even without garnish and could easily be a delicious spread on a sandwich or wrap.  I used some red chili in this recipe too, but that is totally optional.  You also probably know that I love me some spice, so I crave that kick, but you can leave that out if you wish.

This Easy Black Bean Dip is not only flavourful, it’s lower on the fat content cause there’s non fat Greek yogurt in there and just 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  How awesome is that?  I say stuff your face with abandon.  You go!  As they say ’round here —>Give-er!

    I LOVED this video! I keep telling myself am not making any videos but I know I need to…sooner than later… fantastic video, Dawn!
    And, FYI, I snorted coffee from laughing while reading this “I was seriously just waiting for one, or both, of them to start ghosting me<—-yeah, I know the lingo; I’m hip like that #NotReally."
    Thanks for the AM laugh and this delicious dip AND video inspiration! xo

    Love the video! Nice job. And I love beans. You make them look artistic – almost too good to eat. ALMOST. Love the corn and colorful garnishes – rainbow bean delight!

    Just came across your blog, I am a Newfoundlander as well! This dip looks amazing. I will have to make it at some point this summer.

    Your video is amazing – I had so much fun watching it! Can’t believe it is your first video, it looks so professional like you have done it for years. Maybe I can convince my husband to help me a little bit more with the technical site of blogging and maybe some video editing one-day 🙂 As for your dip – looks delicious especially with all the yummy garnishing on top! Have a fantastic weekend, Dawn!

    So that video (and this recipe) is totally kick-ass and I think Kevin helped you more on it because mine don’t even look that good! LOL! I adore black bean dip and was going to make this yesterday for Taco Tuesday but things got messed up and now I’m making it over the weekend for a cookout party we are having. Works out better since I’d rather make it for a bunch of people 😉
    Good work girl and so happy you are on the video train now! Keep ’em coming! 🙂

    Good for you, girlfriend! I love that you made a video and it turned out great! You should totally be proud of that. I’ve had the same position as you that I’m not getting on that train because I really do not have time for that, but you are inspiring! And that dip looks fantastic too! P.S. Yay for hubby the helper!

    You are so cute!! I loved this video. You are one step ahead of me, my friend. Videos are so intimidating!! Congrats! Also, this dip looks great. My hubby always complains when I put black beans in things, but I’m fairly confident he would love this dip. PINNED! Have a good one my friend!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Thank you so much, Katherine – you’re making me blush 😉 I feel good that I have one done – a little less nervous about it 🙂 I hope that you and your hubby love it! Appreciate the Pin too! Hope you have an awesome week!

    So I feel like an idiot! I didn’t think you had posted this yet for some reason, Dawn!! Lol. Good lord, that blonde hair of mine really needs to stop inhibiting my brain from working. Thinking about it now, OF COURSE you posted this already, because ummm how else would people get the recipe? *insert slapping forehead here* I’m a dingdong. Clearly. Anyways, you already know I think you did a GREAT job on your video!! High fives to rockin that ish out, girlie! Love this dip! I could literally eat this with a serving sized spoon, but I bet it’s really nom-tastic spread on some sandos! Cheers, sweets! xo

    Fun video, Dawn! You did such a great job! 🙂 Like you, I don’t make a ton of videos. I’ve done them a couple of times, but they take so much more work! I can’t believe that’s your first video, too. Now, as far the recipe itself, I love it! We had a restaurant in Atlanta that made a killer black bean dip, and I’ve been a fan ever since. Also, I love that your dip has so many garnishes. I’ll take all of the feta and cilantro, please!!

      Thank you David!! It definitely is SO much work! It’s hard to believe that a video under 2 minutes could take so long, lol 😀 So happy you love the recipe! I’ve made it a lot lately cause it’s so easy and yummy. Happy Monday to ya 🙂

    Welcome to the world of videos! Definitely a learning curve, but there are so many wonderful blogging resourses out there. I’m loving the sound of this easy dip. I try to sneak Greek yogurt into my recipes whenever I can, and I love that you used it in this black bean version. I’ve been obsessed with black bean soups and salads lately, so this dip is calling my name. Pinned! Hope you have a great day!
