Baked Black Bean Dip Recipe

Like I mentioned before, the Super Bowl this year was all about the food and commercials for me! 🙂 When Super Bowl weekend rolled around I knew I needed to have some sort of Mexican inspired dip at my house.

The Super Bowl is always a good excuse to try out those recipes you have wanted to try but had no reason to. Like this beer cheese dip, or these mozzarella sticks or seven layer dip.

I made this Baked Black Bean Dip recipe a couple of times before game day and feel like I got it just right, and the flavors work really well together. My husband couldn’t take the heat (wimp!) so I cut the spice down a tad.

Not only are the flavors great, but black beans are healthy, help keep you feeling full and are packed with protein and fiber. This dip can be made ahead of time, put in the refrigerator and then thrown in the oven when the party starts (but you don’t need a party to eat this stuff).

This Baked Black Bean Dip can hang with the best of them.
