I love a good bean dip, especially one that has added vegetables so I can make it feel the tiniest bit healthier.  This black bean queso dip recipe is simple to make (takes about 10 minutes), is perfectly spiced, and a great dip for chips or nachos.
 
It’s a perfect appetizer to bring to a game day party, for tailgating, or just for a backyard BBQ.  You can also make this a Taco Tuesday recipe and add a scoop of this dip on top of tacos, burritos, or a big plate of nachos.

What’s In This Corn and Black Bean Dip Recipe?

  • Corn – you can use fresh, canned, or frozen!  Whatever you have on hand. If corn is in season, aim for fresh – but if not, then I like to use frozen sweet corn which has a better flavor than canned.
  • Low Sodium Black Beans:  Using a low or no salt bean is essential in this dish!  These no salt added or low sodium beans have better flavor and control of the salt in your dip.  If you use normal canned beans you run the risk of having the dip be way too salty.
  • Salsa: This salsa is our absolute favorite… and I like that you can re-use the mason jars when you are done with the salsa to can other foods!  It’s like a extra bonus.
  • Melty Cheese: You can use creamy Velveeta for this recipe, or another melty cheese alternative.  You can use a plant-based cheese for a vegan substitute as well.
  • Chili Powder: for a really nice flavor in this dip – the chili powder isn’t spicy but will give you a rich and bright flavor.
  • Cumin: also adds a really nice flavor to this dip – cumin has a lightly smokey flavor found in a lot of chili recipes.
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! if you don’t like spice, you can absolutely skip them in this recipe.
  • Jalapenos: if you don’t have fresh jalapenos, these jarred sliced jalapenos are a fantastic addition to the dip!  I use these in a pinch, they’re great to keep a jar or two in the pantry.
  • Cilantro, Roasted Red Pepper, and Olives to top!
