Sweet, savory, and tangy, this fresh and healthy black bean and corn dip is made for scooping! Just know that once you start, you might not be able to stop.

I love the contrast in texture between the hearty, slightly creamy beans and the crunch from the fresh vegetables. The salty tortilla chips make the perfect addition.

If you’re able to make this recipe a day ahead, the only thing better than having this recipe fresh is allowing it to refrigerate and marinate. The longer it soaks in all the yummy juices, the better!

Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black eyed peas drained and rinsed (or sub more black beans)
  • 2 cups (4 ears) fresh corn kernels (Note 1 Canned or Frozen)
  • 1 red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/2 small (1/3 cup) red onion finely diced
  • 4 green onions finely sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Tortilla chips for serving

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients, except cilantro, to a large bowl and stir to combine. You can serve this right away at room temperature, but I prefer to serve it chilled. The ingredients marinate together longer in the fridge and gives this dip even more flavor the next day. Cover it with plastic wrap or foil and chill in the fridge overnight (or even a couple hours works).

  • Serve with more fresh cilantro and your favorite tortilla chips. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes

Note 1. Corn. You can also use 1 can of corn (drained) or frozen and thawed corn.

Note 2. Vinegar. You can use any type of acid to balance out this recipe. Lime juice is a great acid with a ton of Mexican flavors.

Black Bean Corn Feta Dip. You can add 4 ounces of crumbled feta cheese to the mixture to make a simple feta dip.
