Creamy Black Bean Dip
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
Over the last few years I have made this dip repeatedly by request. Great for pot lucks and parties.
Delicious appetizer. I would also describe it more as a spread than a dip. I used regular cream cheese and regular extra sharp cheddar and added sliced black olives to the topping.
I added approximately 1/2 cup of sour cream to make this more of a dip instead of a spread and to tone down the sweetness of the creme cheese. Also increased the cumin to two teaspons and used about three dashes of cayenne powder to give it a little bit more kick, although still not too hot for the average taster. Also added sliced black olives to the garnishment. Was a hit at recent work potluck.
Great recipe without the guilt! I've made this several times and I'm never disappointed.
Great flavor without the guilt! This is a favorite and my daughter requests this on her birthday
Great recipe - even my picky children love this one.
I would call this a spread rather than a dip. If you want it to be a dip you will need to thin it out with sour cream or whatever you choose. It is very tasty. I served it to my bridge group and everyone really liked it. I would definitely make it a day ahead of time to give the flavors a chance to blend. I would also give it a dash or two more of cayenne pepper if you like it spicier.
This was very good! Will definitely make it for parties!
This was better than I expected. Only made of half recipe and still had some left over though. Will definitely make again, but add some spice to it.
I love this creamy lowfat full of flavor dip! I have made it several times for parties,and everyone asks for the recipe.It's always a surprise when I mention its lowfat. LOVE IT !!
