The 5-minute black bean dip by Cookin' Canuck is an easy black bean dip recipe. The dip includes canned black beans, salsa, garlic and several spices, and it requires the use of a food processor.
To prepare the bean dip, mince four cloves of garlic and enough cilantro to make up 1/4 cup. Drain and rinse two 14-ounce cans of low-sodium black beans, and pour them into the bowl of the food processor. Also add 3/4 cup salsa, the minced garlic, 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, 1 teaspoon ground cumin and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Pour in 1 teaspoon water, and process the mixture until smooth. Toss in the minced cilantro, and process just until mixed. Transfer the black bean dip to a serving bowl, and serve alongside raw vegetables, multigrain crackers or tortilla chips.
Try different types of salsa to change the flavor of the bean dip, such as a zesty salsa for a spicier dip or a peach salsa for a fruity touch.
