Ingredients

Dip

  • 2 cups cooked pinto or black beans (15 oz. can, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. salt (I like it to be closer to 1 tsp., but some like it less salty)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup cheese (cheddar, Monterey jack or pepper jack are my favorites for this)

Toppings

  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. sliced green onion
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 of a small avocado, diced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Put all dip ingredients, except cheese, into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust salt level if needed.
  • Spread dip out evenly in an oven safe flat dish that will be easy for dipping. Sprinkle cheese on top (you can add more than 1/2 cup if you want it to be extra cheesy)* and place dish in oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and dip is warmed through. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with toppings. Serve with chips, and/or sliced vegetables.

Notes

*Dip can be prepared up to this step a day ahead.
