Are you craving a snack that won't ruin your diet? This Black Bean Dip will have you coming back for more without worrying about your diet.


My new year’s resolution is to drink more water and to eat healthier. I’m always on the look out for new recipes to keep me feeling full but are healthy too. I’m what you would call a snacker. I LOVE dips. I have lots of dip recipes over at YHE. Like Skinny Pumpkin Dip, Pizza Dip, Cheesy Corn Dip and S’mores Dip. I like to sort of nibble and peck at things in the pantry and fridge. Are you like that too?

Black Bean Dip Healthy Snack

If you are, I have the perfect recipe for you today… Black Bean Dip! It tastes just like a (refried) bean dip but is much healthier. It has a yummy bean flavor with just a kick of spice.

Black beans are loaded with protein, making this the perfect snack if you’re watching your calories. Just a little bit goes a long way. It pairs fabulously with pita chips or veggies. My family just couldn’t get enough of it! It’s a bit addicting, so watch out for that. ūüėČ
