Hope you are enjoying our Blendtec week! We have had our Blendtec for a few years now and love it. I’m totally a smoothie type of girl so use it nearly everyday. Besides smoothies I think the next most common thing I make is dip. From hummus, to salsa and this black bean dip. The high power blender makes them incredibly smooth and can handle all the tough chunky veggies I like to add in.
This black bean dip is one of my husbands favorites. He makes it for al our family outings to the beach, park or wherever our adventure awaits. And yes, if my husband can whip this up- you can too! My girlfriend Erin from introduced me to this dip a few years ago and I was hooked. She has celiacs disease- so gluten is out. One reason I love beans and this black bean dip. I have friends that are vegetarian and a couple that have Celiac’s disease. When ever I’m cooking for them or a gathering when they are involved.. beans are a go to. This recipe suits them both!
Pile up all the ingredients in the blender.. add more or less to your taste buds! Cilantro is a beautiful thing…
Serve up with some chips and lime for extra tang. I highly recommend avocados to top it off!
