Jalapeno Black Bean Dip


A big thanks to all who have already submitted your Super Bowl recipes for the contest.  How am I going to choose?  Everything sounds so good!

Tonight at midnight is the deadline to get your recipe in for consideration, so don’t forget!

Anyway just reading all these recipes about dips, chili’s, soups, sandwiches and desserts made me want to make dip myself.  You people are creative!

I love black beans so this Jalapeno Black Bean Dip is one of my go to choices.  It has wonderful flavors and is not too spicy (the cheese and the mayo take care of that).

It’s also perfect for the Super Bowl, so let’s make it!

Here’s what you will need: Black beans, jalapeno, mayonnaise, Monterey Jack cheese, ground cumin, garlic powder and parsley flakes.
 

Drain one 15 ounce can black beans and mash them with a fork.  Add 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 jalapeno pepper (seeded, deveined and chopped), 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes and mix until combined.

Spoon mixture into a 1-quart casserole, then top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.  Place onto a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees uncovered for 20 twenty minutes or until heated through.

You just know it’s good.

Serve with your favorite dippers while rooting for your team.

  1. This would be something new to bring to our family gathering in Feb. They are used to me bring the same old thing. This would shake it up!

    Totally unrelated to this post, but I have been wondering-when you use butter in your recipes and photograph it, it looks like a mini version of a regular stick of butter. Is it a brand that just makes theirs more square than rectangular? The Dude looked at it too and thought it looked ‘mini’. Just wondering :)

    Yay! An excuse to go out and buy some tortilla chips! I mean thin cut wedges of carrot of course!
    I’m on a calorie count so if I make this I’ll have to use veggies to dip into it, but I’m sure it’ll be fantastic with strips of peppers and carrots!

  4. The recipe looks yummy, even at this time of the morning, excepting the beans part. I will delete the beans for myself and double the cheese. Or make it just as written for everybody else!

    Have you considered your own cook book ?

    Thanks for a great recipe. I succumbed to the baking fairy, but I did not eat any of it. I smelled it often, but there are no calories in aromas, right?

    Love ya,

    Oh……my gosh. This looks so scrumptious. I love love black beans, and I think I absolutely must make this. I can’t usually hack jalapenos though….maybe a little Rotel would work as a replacement….

  50. Jeez, I think that I’ve been getting fatter just reading about your Superbowl recipes – all of which look lip smackingly tummy-rumblingly good! Black bean dip is so full of fibre and wonderful things, but the color sometimes throws people off…I love that you solved that problem by smothering it in cheese and pretty garnishes!! Great job, as always.

    (and will you save me a seat on your couch come game day?)

    Cool, now I have a black bean chili and a black bean dip.

    I’m partial to black beans, in case I wasn’t being obvious. Plus, when you add the word “jalapeno” to the mix, I’m all about it.

  77. This looks delicious and so easy to make. Can you sub in another kind of cheese? I’d like to use up what I have at home and I don’t have any Montery Jack. I do have brie, blue cheese, raw goat milk cheese, and sharp cheddar… would any of these go?
