Super Bowl Sunday Bean Dip Recipe

Are you ready for some football? The Super Bowl is on Sunday and we are gearing up for our annual party. Every year we have friends over to watch the game, commercials, and to eat good food. That is usually the highlight of the day:)

This year we are making Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde with lots of tasty sides. Chips, salsa, guacamole, a fresh fruit tray, Cilantro Lime Rice, and this Easy Black Bean Dip are all on the menu. I am still pondering dessert, but I am pretty sure cookies will make an appearance. You can’t have a party without cookies and Josh is begging for Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sounds good to me:)

  1. made this for a pod super bowl party. it turned out super tasty, I’ll definitely be making this again. I did make extra to use in other dishes, smeared on toast, etc. I didn’t use cilantro despite loving its taste, but used the cojita cheese as a garnish instead.

  2. 5 stars
    It’s odd that you call for mincing the vegetables, and then put them in a food processor. Of course, maybe depending on your food processor, you can just get the food processor do that.

    This is my go-to recipe when someone asks me to bring something for a party. It is always a hit with at least 2 or 3 people asking for the recipe. It is so easy and so delicious. And my kids love when I make it just for us!

  4. 5 stars
    This was delicious! I made it for a party and everyone loved it. It is also easy to make and healthy! I will definitely be making it again!

    Made this last night, I swapped out the chilli for a torro rosso chilli and left the seeds in as I like a chilli kick. Also skipped out the cheese. It was absolutely delicious!! Great recipe thanks for sharing!

  6. 5 stars
    Bueno! I didn’t have any cilantro or peppers so my judgment is a bit off. But my significant other thought it was similar to what we get at our favorite restaurant. That says a lot! Cinco De Mayo Niños y Niñas! Mas Tequila!!!

  7. This looks like a great recipe. I’m wondering if I can do this ahead and freeze it. Sure would appreciate your input. Thank you.

  8. Made this at work during downtime cus I had the ingredients (aside from the cheese). Instead tossed some cheddar on top and melted it, then added pico de Gallo and sour cream. It was wonderful. Added a Lil more spice cus that’s how I like it but will 100% make it again 🙂

  9. Is this better the day of or the second day? I want to use it for my book club get together. Thank you! Looks delish!

    This is a delicious, and zero point dip on WW. I just made a batch to use with vegetables for my lunches this week. It’s fantastic!
