Secret Recipe Club September: Kidney Bean Dip!

17 Sep


Happy fall time everyone!! My all-time favorite time of the year! Cool and sunny days, colorful leaves, football and the anticipation of the upcoming holidays! (:

And of course it’s also my favorite time of the month… Secret Recipe Club time!!! This month I’ve been assigned the blog Eliot’s Eats. this blog has some great stuff on there!! From jams to desserts, this was a hard choice to make! I finally came to the decision to make a bean dip that requires barely any prep time with literally no cooking time… my favorite kind of recipe (:

The original recipe is for Great Northern Bean Dip, but, being vegan, I wanted to utilize a bean that offers plenty of iron: the mighty red kidney bean.

Kidney Bean Party Dip

Serves 6

1 can red kidney beans, drained
1/4 cup salsa (I used Trader Joe’s habanero salsa)
1/2 tsp. sea salt


In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Pulse until combined and somewhat smooth.



Scoop onto a serving dish and serve with vegetable sticks or tortilla chips. Enjoy!!


I’m planning on making this dip again soon and topping it with diced avocado just to spruce it up even more (:

    This looks amazing! Love that’s it’s somewhat healthy! I’d eat it all, I’m afraid. Dip and chips are my fav!

    I love how simple this dip is. I’m a huge fan of both bean dip and salsa, so it’s very cool to see them combined. I’ll have to try it!

    Love how simple this is and how short the ingredient list is. Who doesn’t love a dip recipe that comes together this quickly?! Great pick for SRC!
