Full of fiber and flavor, this tasty black bean dip recipe is incredibly filling. Serve it as a dip with fresh veggies, baked pita chips, or baked tortilla chips as a delicious and healthy appetizer recipe.

I also used this dip as a sandwich spread on a turkey breast sandwich. Deelish! This is really such an easy dip recipe, you can make it in no time, so it’s a great snack idea if you need to whip up something healthy – fast!

Also, I am obsessed with spicy foods, so if you don’t like things as hot as I do, just take out the jalapenos in this recipe. :)

Though this is not an official one of Weight Watchers Dip Recipes, it’s 1 Point servings, make it an ideal dip for any dieter.

  1. How did you get your point value? To me everything in seemed like a free food? Or do some of the spices have points? Thanks

      Hi Lisa! This is an old recipe that I haven’t revised yet with the new Freestyle Points plan (I’m a one woman show over here, and it takes me a LONG time to update all my old recipes!). But yes, this recipe would be 0 Freestyle Points. Thanks for reading!

  2. I made this and it’s great, a really unique mix of flavors.

  3. I was just wondering what the calories are in this? Thanks

    • Unfortunately, I don't have the calorie count on this…only the Weight Watchers Points. Sorry! :(

  4. I love all your recipes! I just want to double check that the serving size on here is correct. I can't figure out how this recipe would make 8 1-cup servings… there just aren't that many ingredients?

    • Ahhh! Thanks for catching that typo! It's actually 1/4 cup for a serving. I just corrected it in the post. Thanks again!
