I was of 2 minds about whether or not to post this dip because my goodness it took a bad picture. It was a pig roast dish and had no fancy plating like the brownies–plus I only got photos taken with leftovers. By which point I was not in very good shape for photography.
But I am going to share the dish because this dip is one of my great discoveries of 2009. It is SO GOOD. I had it first at a friend’s house and immediately requested the recipe. Turns out it is a fairly simple Cooking Light recipe–who’da thunk? And who would have guessed it had carrots in it? Not me! But if you like black beans and limes as much as I do I guarantee you will like this dip.
Lime Spiked Black Bean Dip
Adapted from Cooking Light
2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup grated carrot (I used bagged shredded carrots since I was quadrupling the recipe)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 2-3 limes)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground New Mexico chile pepper
Place all of the ingredients in the food processor. Pulse until you have a “dip-able” consistency (chunkiness is up to you). Serve with tortilla chips.

I know it's delish because lime and black beans rock the house! Thanks for this great recipe!
We discovered this when it first came out on CL…and it has quickly become a standard in my kitchen! Glad that you're enjoying it. 🙂 Thanks for the reminder…I may need to go make it again soon. LZ
I love dips of all kinds. Looks like a great recipe.

I bet this would transition well into black bean cakes too…which I am totally obsessed with right now.
i have to say, it does kinda resemble the sort of thing you dread seeing beside the cat food dish, but man, i know it'd be tasty. i'm glad you posted the recipe regardless of the picture!!
I love to make black bean dip! your sounds great.
Okay, I'm not gonna lie that isn't the best photo (savory food is SO hard to photo and make look yummy) but for you to go with posting it and the recipe as well as claiming it to be one of the best discoveries of 2009 says A LOT!
Thanks for sharing!
