Let’s talk about black beans.

There are so many nutrients packed into these little guys! Fiber, protein, iron, calcium, folate, magnesium, zinc… I could go on. They’re good for your heart and your bones, they promote healthy digestion, and they keep you feeling full. Long story short: black beans are powerhouses.

And they’re practically magical. You can use black beans in everything from soup to brownies, so there are many ways to get more of them into your diet.

I paired them with the protein and healthy fat of peanut butter to make this creamy and delightful dip. Lime juice and soy sauce add even more flavor, and it’s all rounded off with the spiciness of hot sauce. It’s a healthy and delicious snack, and it couldn’t be simpler to make– just dump everything into a food processor and go! I make this recipe in my Ninja (which I adore and highly recommend), and the hardest thing about it is not eating it directly from the bowl.

    I am a serious peanut butter lover but have never had peanut butter and beans. As different as it sounds I can’t knock it until I try it so I’ll have to give it a try when we get back home! Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday!

    This is so cool! I love things with unexpected ingredients, but I can totally see how the peanut butter would add that touch of sweetness and umami to make the black beans stand out! Genius! Thanks for sharing with the Wednesday Showcase 🙂

    I’m so intrigued by the mix of the ingredients and flavor profiles of this dip! Can’t wait to try this, especially since I just bought a humongous bag of chips at Sam’s and need something like your rockin’ bean dip to eat with them! Pinned, and thanks! –Ginger
