Tex-Mex Black Bean Dip

2013 – Gluten Free Living

This marvelous Tex-Mex Black Bean Dip is the BEST you will ever taste! It’s filled with the Tex-Mex ingredients and spices popular in most Tex-Mex recipes: black beans, diced chilies, diced tomatoes, salsa, cumin, chili powder, cilantro and a Mexican cheese blend.

It’s also served hot! Serving this dip hot makes it a step above a lot of dip and chip recipes. The flavors are simply wonderful and work so well together.

Several years ago a friend brought this spectacular dip to a Tex-Mex themed fellowship for our Sunday school class. I couldn’t stop eating the stuff. She served it in an electric skillet to keep the dip hot. Down, down, down, the Tex-Mex Black Bean Dip went until there was hardly any left!

I’m not sure where Carrie got the original recipe, but a version that’s very similar to this one is found at allrecipesfood.com, and my recipes. My version definitely has some differences in ingredients but it’s so similar overall that my guess is the original recipe was the Cooking Light recipe from their April 1997 edition.

If you’re looking for a delicious Tex-Mex Black Bean Dip recipe than look no farther than this great recipe. I took it to my neighbor’s 55th birthday bash last weekend and all the guests there raved over it. It’s that good. If you like Tex-Mex stuff, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this recipe too.

When I initially published this post in May 2013, I was new to using my Canon camera. My pictures were not very good. I recently remade this recipe (July 2017) for our Friday night care group and snapped a few new pictures. I ended up gorging on this appetizer for a couple of days. I still love this stuff. 🙂

Pour olive oil into a skillet. I love my enameled cast iron skillets! Add diced onion and saute a bit. Add minced garlic from a jar and saute a little bit longer.
