Black Bean Dip

  • 19 oz can of black beans -rinsed and drained (I used 'unsalted')
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt -or sour cream
  • 2 limes -juiced, about 3 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 chipotles in adobo sauce -or to taste (or 1 -1.5 tsp smoked paprika or chipotle powder)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp salt -or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic -minced
  • 1/2 cup corn -fresh or frozen (see 'Notes' below)

Suggested Garnish

  • diced tomato
  • diced bell pepper
  • sliced chili -or chili flakes
  • sliced green onion
  • cilantro
  • feta cheese
  • olive oil -I like 'chili' olive oil


  • Combine all ingredients down to garlic in a food processor and blend until smooth and combined. STIR in corn with a spatula (or you can save for garnish).
  • Garnish as desired. Serve with your favourite chips or veggie sticks (also delicious as a spread on a sandwich or wrap). Enjoy!



  • Rinse and drain your beans well. If you ca get 'em, grab the 'unsalted' variety
  • Don't have Greek yogurt on hand? Use sour cream!
  • Don't have chipotles in adobo sauce? Use a chipotle powder or smoked paprika. Don't have that? Use freshly minced chili or chili flakes (though, you won't have that same smoky heat).
  • Like things more or less spicy? Adjust the spice to taste.
  • I make this corn and black bean dip a couple of ways, depending on my mood. Originally I garnished with corn. In this updated version, I put the corn in the dip. You do what you enjoy best!
  • Speaking of corn, if you opt for frozen, thaw and squeeze any excess moisture/water before using.
