How to Store Loaded Black Bean Dip

Refrigerate this dip for 3 to 4 days in an air-tight container (we love these glass containers with locking lids for storing dips!). For longer storage, freeze this dip for 2 to 3 months in an air-tight, freeze-safe container or a heavy-duty freezer bag with as much air as possible removed.

Tips for Making Black Bean Dip

  • For chunkier dip, mash the beans with a potato masher.
  • For smoother dip, use a blender to mash the beans.
  • Mash the beans while they’re hot for the best texture.
  • You could use canned refried black beans in place of black beans, however we love how all the spices come together when you mash everything together after cooking. Plus, we think this black bean dip tastes better (and holds up to the chip) with a chunkier bean!
  • Add jalapenos for a spicy kick!
