The seasonal weather shift means more parties and gatherings for friends and family. Whip up a batch of this black bean and chickpea dip for your guests; it’s packed with flavor and protein. I have made it several times for parties and trust me, the bowl always comes back empty. 


  1. 1 15 ounce can of black beans, rinsed & drained
  2. 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed & drained
  3. 1/2 cup sour cream
  4. 1 small green pepper, diced
  5. 2 small jalapenos, sliced
  6. 1 large tomato, diced
  7. 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  8. 1 cup frozen or fresh corn kernels
  9. 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  10. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  11. 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine black beans & chick peas. Mash them together, also feel free to use a food processor on a slow speed.
  2. Add sour cream, green peppers, jalapenos, tomato, cilantro and corn. Mix well. 
  3. Stir in remaining spices – cumin, black pepper, sea salt.
  4. Serve cold & garnish with cilantro.
