We love a good dip at the Vegan Larder. Especially ones made with beans that are full of flavour and tang! Which is why this Smoky Chipotle Black Bean Dip is a new favourite!
Why do we like dips with beans? Well, any kind of dip is good, but one with loads of beany goodness are even better. Beans and pulses are full of protein & fibre and when whizzed up into a dip, they make a great snack or addition to all kinds of meals. Think how good hummus is with crackers or bread, or how yummy a creamy white bean dip is for eating with crudites. (like this one!)
This gorgeous smokey black bean dip is so super quick and easy to make too! I created it 'live' on Facebook and it took me less than 4 minutes (and that was with me chatting and getting lime squeezed in my eye- check it out for a laugh!.
And while you are there, give us a follow for more live cooking laughs!- I'm cooking live on Saturday mornings at 11.30 am (GMT) and Vanessa is going live on Wednesday's at 11.30am, talking about health and tips for vegan living.
This dip is only 4 ingredients too, and also has no oil! Triple yay! All it contains is black beans, semi-dried tomatoes, chipotle paste & some lime juice. Couldn't be easier!
Make it up to eat with corn chips (ok, not so healthy) or to scoop up with some crunchy veggies (definitely healthy!) Or even better, smoosh it onto a burger or in a taco with some roasted veggies & maybe a bit of yummy vegan sour cream.
Let us know in the comments or on FB or Insta if you make this super yummy Smoky Chipotle Black Bean dip. We hope you love it as much as we love making and eating it!
