Meatless Monday Night Black Bean Dip
Black Bean Green Chili Dip
Well now that football season is in full swing I have to say I feel more complete haha.. I love football and growing up, as a child into my adulthood eating some delicious food and enjoying a football game was and has been an American tradition. However, just because ill be in front of the TV watching ball doesn’t mean I should eat meaningless calories. I’m totally in for the Silk® Almond Milk #MeatlessMondayNight , if you would like to enter visit www.silk.com/sidelinemeat for recipes and a chance to win a giveaway! Having a more plant-based diet can start with making a change just one day a week – so why not start by sidelining meat during Monday Night Football games this season?
My recipe is one of my favorite foods of all times…Beans! There are so many things you can do with beans but here is a quick and convenient black bean green chili dip for your Monday night games that is dairy free. It your not a spicy person you can omit the green chili, I’m just a from New Mexico so we put green chili in everything. It’s delicious!
The best way to always cook your beans is through the slow cooker. I love this method simply because it is easy and convenient and taste amazing. I can make a whole pot of beans turn it on high in the morning and by the time I get home the end of day the beans are done. This makes it easy and you get to enjoy fresh home cooked beans.
This makes a difference when it comes to the texture and the taste of the beans when you use a slow cooker. You’ll also love the creaminess of the dip,because the dash of Silk® Almond milk that was added into the recipe. So here is my meatless Monday night black bean dip you and your family are sure to enjoy.
2 cups cooked black beans or 1 can (Highly recommend slow cooking your beans)
½ cup vegetable broth
¼ cup Silk® Unsweetened Almond Milk
½ Tsp. cumin
2 tablespoons dices green chili’s
Minced garlic to taste (Average 1 clove
Squeeze half a fresh lime
Blend all ingredients together very well in blender or food processor. I honestly just use my magic bullet if I’m making a small batch for just me and my husband. Garnish with a fresh slices of avocado, lettuce, tomato and serve.
All done! How simple is that…and its good for you. Hope you all enjoy my #MeatlessMondayNight.
