Healthy Black Bean Dip


2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup reserved black bean liquid
1/4 medium red onion
1 Roma tomato
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Transfer the dip to a bowl, add more sea salt to taste, garnish with leftover cilantro, and serve. It can be stored in the fridge, but I think it tastes best at room temperature.

    I just made this and OMG is it yummy!!! It has a mexican flair to it that I love. Also mine did turn out not as thick but hey I like it that way :) It would also make a great soup served warm :)

    I have made a ton of recipes from this site and this is the first that I have one complaint. I think the cider vinegar gave it a really sour taste, but maybe my vinegar was bad...

    Mmm... sounds good! I just made mine with 2 cans beans, steamed kale, 2 semi-seeded jalapenos, and a little water. It was good in wraps, but this one sounds much more flavorful.
