Chipotle Black Bean Dip!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be joining Seasonal Sunday and Foodie Friday today! Even though my Personal PIGskin Challenge has ended, I wanted to add one more easy dip in case you want something different for the Super Bowl. Should be a great game!
Chipotle Black Bean Dip
Trust me, what this lacks in color, it more than makes up for in flavor-Oh Momma!
I found this from a commenter on, I did not copy the gentleman's name.
Hope you love it if you try it:@)

Chipotle Black Bean Dip
1 can drained and rinsed black beans (he says reserve the juice)
1 rinsed, seeded medium sized chopotle
1 Tblsp Adobo sauce
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 clove garlic, small
Salt to taste (you do need to add some)
Blend all in a food processor. He suggests adding the bean liquid until you get the desired consistency.
Serve with chips, veggies, anything really.

  • This is one of those sneaky, addictive dips! Luckily, it's not too bad for you.
  • I suggest rinsing the beans, and if you need to add more liquid simply use more lime juice.
  • Chipotles are smoked jalapeños, so they do have some heat!
  • Chipotles in Adobo come in a small can in the Mexican food isle of supermarkets and Walmart.
  • I have a couple recipes that use chipotle's but never a whole can of them. I place one or two peppers on a silicone or parchment lined cookie sheet, topping them with the sauce, they freeze very well. Store in a zip top bag.
  • I ended up using one chipotle with however much sauce was frozen to it, and I did remove as many seeds as I could.
This recipe gave me a chance to use one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, my Food Processor!
Do you have any favorites? New or antique! Join my party on February 14th!


  1. This looks terrific!
    Your Valentine runner from the previous post is perfect!

  2. Fabulous! Love bean dips. Love adobo sauce. This dip will keep me on my toes.


  3. I can definitely tell that this would be so flavorful, despite the color, by having the chipotle and adobo. Yummy! I am going to try this.

    I love the way you've served it up in the two ruffled pretty!


  4. Mmmm this sounds good, I love bean dips, can't wait to try it!

  6. Love chipotle, this dip is right up my alley! Looks great!

    The Valentine runner is lovely.

  8. We really like the chipotle in Adobo and the black beans will have a great earthy taste to go with. I have a feeling this is going to be a hit.

    Love your pretty frilly dish with the rustic feel of the chips and dip..very nice.

  9. This dip looks like one I've got to try. I bet it's yummy with veggies too! Thanks Lynn.

  10. That DOES sound delish & healthy too, if I can prevent myself from eating half a bag of chips with it!

  11. the dip looks wonderful but the dish looks fabulous!! treasure indeed! HSS!

  12. Love chipotle, and I always freeze some after opening the can. I even have some chips, so I'll be making this!

  13. I love black beans and they are very healthy. i also love my food processor too! Thanks for the recipe♥

  14. That looks like it's both quick and easy. That's the way I like a great day.

  15. Sounds delicious! And, I love your dish. I remember my mother having one like that. I'll have to s if she still has it. Maybe she'll give it to me! Happy PS!

  16. This is perfect for superbowl!..Christine

  17. This sounds like a great dip for our house!

  18. Thanks for the recipe.. would be great for this afternoon. Looks yummy.

  19. This looks great and easy, AND I have everything on hand. I use the Chipotles in Adobos very often. Freezing them is a good tip, but I usually put them in a mason jar with a tight seal on it. I use them a lot, and I never have had any go bad. I am going to do this this afternoon to go with our super-bowl fare: fajitas!

  20. This dip will be perfect for the Big Game. Enjoy!

  21. I would have to have a gal of Malox Before I ate that, but I am sure dh would eat my share! :)

  22. I will be pasting that recipe into my stash! Thanks for sharing. I LOVE the dish you served it in too.

  23. Looks delish. Thanks for bringing your recipe to Seasonal Sundays.
