Chipotle Raspberry Black Bean Dip

Last night while Daniel and I were contemplating what to have for dinner we realized we had all the ingredients necessary to make Chipotle Raspberry Black Bean Dip. Now, before you convulse in disgust, hear me out. In this wonderful town I live in there is this popular restaurant called So Long Saloon. They have this amazing dip and at first I was skeptical too but your taste buds will thank you. It’s so good, it should be sinful.

Now, I realize there are a lot of versions of this recipe out there, but mine is very simple, quick, and you only need THREE ingredients!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 can drained black beans
  • 1 8 oz package of cream cheese (preferably 1/3 less fat)
  • 1/2 bottle of Raspberry sauce

There are many different brands of the raspberry sauce — a popular one is Bronco Bob’s (definitely a good choice) but I really like Fiesta Juan’s Raspberry Jalapeno — less calories and just as delicious. Even though they have different ounces in their bottles still just use half. Fiesta Jaun’s is a little thicker so no need to add extra.

So here’s what you do:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F. In a 9 X 9 baking pan spread the cream cheese evenly in the bottom. You may need to set the cream cheese out for a little bit so it is soft enough to spread. Then pour the drained black beans over the cream cheese. Drizzle the raspberry sauce evenly all over the top.

2.  Place dish in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and stir ingredients until well mixed.

3.  Enjoy with tortilla chips!

This recipe makes 4 servings at 179 calories.

That’s not bad until you add the tortilla chips. I also ended up having almost two servings last night! It’s addictive stuff. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Similar recipes add various ingredients such as caramelized onions or pepper jack cheese. There are lots of versions to try! Get playful with it if you want. I just like it quick and simple — especially when I’m hungry!

Now on to what all I ate yesterday:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Cereal 100
Almond milk 30
Left over Alfredo & Shrimp 60
Snack Wheat Thins 140
Pistachios (small handful) 40
Lunch Almond butter & jelly sandwich 250
Dinner Rice & Veggie Stir Fry 150
Chipotle Raspberry Black Bean Dip 358
Tortilla Chips 350
Total 1478

Not only did I make the dip but I also made the stir fry! Daniel was busy working on a paper (summer classes, bummer). But I enjoyed trying to show him up with my version of the meal. I started with chopped green peppers, then I added a slew of ingredients:

  • Onion powder
  • Sesame seeds
  • Ground red pepper
  • Greek rub
  • Garlic salt
  • Sesame oil
  • Honey
  • Soy sauce
  • Lemon & lime juices
  • Rice!!!

Mmm, mmm good! I tried to eat as much of this as I could but the bean dip was calling my name! Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Daniel was proud of my version of the stir fry 🙂

At least we’re slowly getting rid of stuff in our cabinets/fridge. So it was totally necessary to make the bean dip… but I didn’t workout yesterday. Some one tell me to get off my butt and exercise! Please?
