After some experimenting in the HIP kitchen, we came up with this simple yet delicious recipe for bean dip. We serve this dip at summer meal sites for kids and teens, so left the spices on the mild side, but you can always add more chili or cayenne for extra kick!

Homemade Bean Dip

Makes ~ 10 servings


  • 2 15-oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed (can sub in some pinto or re-fried beans)
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (can sub in some balsamic vinegar)
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


If using a food processor, combine ingredients in food processor, adding the smaller amount of water to start. Blend until desired consistency is reached, adding additional water if necessary.

If preparing by hand, put beans in a bowl and mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients, starting with the smaller amount of water and adding more if necessary.
