This dip is served warm and scooped up with tortilla chips. You could also use fresh cut veggie sticks if you wanted a healthier option!

This recipe is so easy.

What you will need:

  • black beans
  • cream cheese
  • Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • fresh lime juice
  • sea salt and cumin
  • garlic
  • grated cheese and fresh cilantro for garnish

Blitz everything except the cheese and cilantro in your food processor and pour into a baking dish.

Easy, right?

Next up, smother with cheese. 

I grate it and sprinkle some chili flakes on it to spice it up even further.

I loooove cheese.

Then sprinkle evenly onto your pureed bean and cream cheese mixture.

Time for the oven!

Bake it up and sprinkle with gorgeous fresh cilantro when it’s done.

I love the pop of green freshness!

We went. to. town on these. Delicious, spicy, cheesy, packed with zesty flavours. Love.

I even found an arrow shaped chip!

I may or may not have pointed at my dish and said “This way to good bean dip!” and then I may or may not have laughed at my own joke. I should have added corn!

Get it?

Corny? I’ll stop now …

Just look at this chip and we’ll talk  after you’ve made and demolished your own batch.

  1. Haha funny Sharon! I am loving this dip. I love black beans and the cream cheese and yogurt in this sounds delish! I’m not familiar with herbamere, so thanks for showing me something new 😀

  2. Ahh yes, I have heard of herbamare – Not much of a salt person, but when I do, I use herbamare. 😉
    I can see why you went to town with this dip. I would have went there twice. lol!

    1. Ha! I actually did go twice! 🙂 Joe and I ate half then a couple of days later, I reheated the leftovers with fresh cheese for a friend and I to share at work!! Even better and spicier the second trip. 😉

    1. We really enjoyed this one. The cilantro at the end was the finishing touch. Well, the cheese was, actually. Who am I fooling? 😉 Have a great week!
