There’s a good chance you already have everything you need to make this hearty hummus-like dip. Serve this spicy bean dip with crudités or corn chips, or use it as a spread in wraps.

Chipotle Black Bean Dip in a red bowl, with chips on the side


  • 1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained (1½ cups)
  • 1 wedge onion (1 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a blender or food processor combine the first five ingredients (through garlic). Cover and blend until smooth. Season with salt; pulse to combine.
  2. Transfer hummus to a bowl. Stir in cilantro. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

I love all hummus and I LOVE tis recipe. Everyplace I take it it is a huge hit. I like spicy so I add more Chipotle pepper than called for and a little bit of the adobo sauce. I also add more than a 1 inch think wedge of onion (probably because I have no idea what 1 inch piece looks like!). This is a great recipe for appetizers, parties, potlucks etc. And make sure to add the cilantro – that makes it pop!

How would you adjust this recipe if you did not want it to be spicy?

Less Chipotle pepper. Maybe just a a wee touch of the adobo sauce for flavor. I’m the opposite, I always add more chipotle than in recipe. Every time I make this it is a hit!!
