Perfect for a weeknight dinner, party, or potluck, this easy dip takes simple beans to the next level.  It’s creamy, perfectly spiced and out of this world tasty. Naturally vegan and gluten-free, it also packs a punch of much needed fiber and healthy plant based protein. Serve it with warmed  tortillas or tortilla chips and enjoy how easy it is to throw together.


  • 1 can pinto beans, drained
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pepper of choice (anaheim, pasilla, jalapeno, etc), chopped
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


Step 1

In a skillet saute chopped onion, garlic, and peppers in the tablespoon of oil, 4-5 minutes until softened and fragrant.

Step 2

When veggies are beginning to brown, transfer them to bowl of food processor, add beans and all remaining ingredients. Puree for 2 minutes until rich and creamy.

Step 3

Transfer dip to a small pot and keep warm on stove until ready to serve.

It sounds interesting, but maybe too spicy for me. I should reduce the quantity of spices. Thanks.
