  • 1 19oz can black beans rinsed; or 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion coarsely chopped or caramelized; we prefer caramelized, but to save time raw onion is delicious as well
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Sautee the onion for about 15 minutes on low to medium heat, until onions are fully caramelized (the best way to caramelize onion is low and slow).
  2. Add everything to a food processor and mix until smooth (or desired consistency).
  3. The dip should retain some texture, and if you’re finding it’s not mixing all that well and you want it creamier, add 1 Tbsp of water at a time until desired texture.
