The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and you know what that means: snacks! If you’re anything like me, there’s only two reason to watch the big game, and neither of them has to do with football. The first reason to watch the Super Bowl is the commercials, which are always quite entertaining. The second reason, obviously, is the food! Super Bowl parties are a great excuse to stuff your face with all the delicious game day eats.
Earlier this month, I received a request to post a chip dip recipe. I had several ideas, so I took a poll, and black bean dip received the most votes! Since the Super Bowl is coming up, I figured now would be the perfect time to post the recipe. However, this black bean dip isn’t just great as a Super Bowl snack. It’s also a great alterative to hummus and is healthy enough to eat every day! Since it’s gluten-free, vegan, oil-free, and high in protein, this dip is suitable for most dietary needs. Even with all these healthy claims, however, this bean dip is still packed with flavor and absolutely delicious!
