Move over hummus, I think we’ve found our new favorite dip for veggies! All it takes to make this delicious black bean dip is a few simple ingredients and a food processor.  We didn’t have a jalapeño on hand, so we made this dip without one and it was still very flavorful! We can only imagine how good it would be with the added flavor!


2 tbs avocado oil

1 yellow onion, diced

½ jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced

2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained – reserve liquid for processing the dip

1 tbs (or more to taste) freshly squeezed lime juice

½ tsp ground cumin

1 tsp (or more to taste) salt

Optional toppings: chopped cherry tomatoes, chopped avocado, fresh cilantro, pickled jalapeño slices, feta cheese


  1. Heat avocado oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeño and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes.
  2. Transfer the onion and jalapeño to a food processor. Add in ¼ cup of reserved liquid from the black beans along with all the other ingredients (aside from the optional toppings).
  3. Process until your desired consistency is achieved. Spread onto a shallow bowl or plate and top with toppings of choice.
