Black Bean Dip is a favorite and when it’s made Mexican style with mild green chilies and a secret ingredient it’s over-the-top good!
I wanted a dip that was a bit different this football season so I used some of the classic ingredients of Mexico’s mole sauce and added it all to black beans.
You don’t taste the chocolate at all so don’t be afraid. It just adds to the flavor and gives a richness to the dip.
Black beans and mild chilies are the stars and a little bit of everything else makes for a great dip that disappears quickly.
It’s an easy recipe where the final step is to blend everything together to make a creamy dip. You can use a blender or a smaller sized food processor.
To me, the mix of flavors is just right. I especially like the big scoop Fritos with it but you can use any of your favorites to make this a special day.
Although corn chips are perfect for dunking many fresh vegetables would be excellent too. Bell pepper slices and jicama spears would be so delicious and they’d also add to the Mexican style flavors.
What To Serve With Black Bean Dip Mexican Style
- As mentioned above bell peppers would be great, both red and green.
- Cauliflower florets.
- Not only corn chips but tortilla chips would also go well.
- Carrots, for sure.
- Don’t forget the celery.
- Have you ever had jicama? Now’s your chance.
Most ingredients are pictured below and I wanted to show the nice variety of flavors, not pictured are the chilies and salt.
Have you ever heard of Mole Sauce in Mexican cuisine? Well, that’s how I came up with this recipes.
There are more spices for the sauce and they change it up for different dishes but there are always chilies and a tad of chocolate.
As for pronouncing Mole it is kind of hard to explain. The accent is on the first half Mo and the second half is like eh. So Móleh is as close as I can get.
One thing I can explain very clearly though is that it sure tastes great.
