Dips can sometimes be bland and unhealthy. This black bean dip is affordable and quick to make, and uses easy-to-find ingredients that you may have at home already. It is tasty as a dip with tortilla chips, crackers, or chopped up veggies, but it can also be used in tacos (including breakfast tacos!), sandwiches, or wraps; drizzled on a soup or used in a stew; or used as a creamy salad dressing. It freezes well and takes no time to make, so can easily be made ahead of time and packed in lunches. Feel free to use this recipe as a template and mix and match ingredients you and your family like or have at home.
