Detox Dips #4

Wow, that’s some serious snow.  The girls were doing all of their bring-on-a-snow-day superstitions, which seemed a little. . . unnecessary. But we’ll see.

I think that this is my last Detox Dip, and it’s Black Bean and Corn Dip. This is a variation of my sister’s recipe, although I don’t know where she came up with it. I love this dip because it’s amazingly flexible. It’s excellent on a scoopy tortilla chip, but you can also just call it a salad and eat it plain, or heat it up and throw it into a tortilla as a meal. This is one of my go-to potluck items, too. The recipe is pretty big, and since it’s vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free, you can present it to a large and varied group of people without guilt or fear. Plus, it’s pretty (unlike some dips I’ve shared).

Black Bean and Corn Dip


  • 2 cans (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans corn (we prefer white corn), drained
  • 1 medium Bermuda (red) onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1-2 t. cumin
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • pinch cayenne
  • chopped fresh cilantro to taste, usually ½ to 1 bunch
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix first four ingredients together.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (starting with lime juice), varying the amounts according to what you like.

The earlier dips were Curried Eggplant DipLime-Spiked Black Bean Dip, and Out West Bean Dip. There was also a post with salsa recipes.
