Easy vegan bean dip made with a hearty, crowd-pleasing combo of refried and black beans! Quick to prepare and perfect for parties or game-time.
For years, this awesome bean dip has been joining us on the couch for football Sundays. I really love the satisfying combo of refried beans and black beans and then topped with fresh, crisp veggies! Bean dips are usually such a crowd-pleasing recipe and perfect for parties and snacking.
This recipe comes together pretty quick but you could also prepare it ahead of time (through all steps except heating in the oven). Then just cover, refrigerate, and pop in the oven when you’re ready, leaving no hassle come game time. We also love smoked paprika and ground chipotle to change up the flavors. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
