Cuban Black Bean Dip Recipe IMG_3889There’s nothing quite like a good dip.  I mean a dip and that doesn’t ask, but demands that you “double dip.” A dip that people hover around to eat while watching the game and drinking a cold beer.  The following recipe is one of those dips.

Representing the Miami Marlins as part of our MLB Recipe Series our Cuban Black Bean Dip is simply stated dipping deliciousness.  It incorporates, go figure, black beans with roasted veggies that provide sweetness, spice, and depth with a touch of creaminess from yogurt and the freshness of lime. A smidgen of cumin does it’s work and when topped with some corn/tomato/cilantro salsa, you’ve got a light addicting dip that George Costanza would be proud to triple dip into.

The Necessities:

  • 2 15oz cans of black beans (rinsed)
  • 3 medium sized carrots
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 anaheim pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 cup of non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Juice of a lime
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Optional Dressing:

  • 1 tomato (finely chopped)
  • 1 ear of corn (cooked and removed from husk)
  • 1/2 juice of a lime
  • Fresh cilantro (finely chopped)


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

    Black bean dip, no matter how ya slice it, is a quick and easy app.

    Plus I hear it’s good for your heart.

    I keep my recipe even simpler, just black beans and some spicy cheese, puree, heat and melt.

    Throw some minced onions on top and voila.

    I’m with you, there is really nothing as good as a bean dip! I love using navy beans because they are just so damn creamy! I love the addition of cumin, one of my favourite spices.
    Was that the first time double dipping was used? I seem to recall we had never really had a name for it previous to that hilarious skit.

    Another great recipe for the series, Jed. THis one packs a bit more of a punch than many bean dips and that’s a good thing.
    That entire episode should be on a highlight reel, “The Best of George Constanza.”
