Lime Spiked Black Bean Dip


  • 2  (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  cup  grated carrot
  • 1/2  cup  fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4  cup  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground red pepper


Place beans in a food processor, and pulse until almost smooth. Combine the beans, carrot, and the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring until well blended. Let stand 30 minutes. Serve with baked tortilla chips. Makes 5 cups.

This recipe, from Cooking Light, is a great appetizer that is very easy to do and also shows that you put some additional time and energy into an appetizer beyond just purchasing it from a store.  We brought this along with different colored tortilla chips to one of the music festival evenings up at Arborcrest Winery as our contribution to an appetizer potluck.  Delicious and healthy... a hit with the group!
