Happy National Tortilla Day! Smoothie Monday had to take a backseat today because of this glorious holiday!! You know how I love Mexican food, spice and dips, so I had to celebrate with my Hot Black Bean Dip!
Oh man this dip is so me. Apparently I’m on some kind of southwestern kick from yesterdays chili recipe. But this dip is just amazing, really it is. It’s chunky, fresh tasting, filling, cheesy, gluten-free and simply delicious. It’s not spicy either, that’s because I dip it in the brand new, just hitting the markets now “The Better Chip” newest addition to its family of great chips, “Chipotles and Sea Salt Tortilla Chips.” These chips are hot and spicy!! I love them. The tortilla chips are the perfect complement to my bean dip.
Making the bean dip is super easy too! I cooked everything on a skillet and poured it into my bowl. Then I started dipping! The bean dip is made with onions, garlic, black beans, corn, pepper jack cheese, cumin, cilantro, and fresh cherry tomatoes. If you didn’t have fresh tomatoes, I think salsa would work beautifully in this recipe too!!
This dip is perfect served with your favorite Mexican meal or you could even load it onto a taco salad or even make tacos with it. Me, I prefer dipping chips in it. I’m just glad I had some chips leftover. My Husband tends to eat them all, so I hid them. Just don’t tell him I did that! he he
