Black Bean Bandit Dip as Appetizer

Creating my own versions of dishes we love when we eat out is something I thoroughly enjoy.  Today I had a blast reflecting on a dip my husband and I can almost make a meal at a local restaurant.  The interesting ingredient in my version of this dip is the spicy black bean that is smooth but chunky.  I end up adding 1/2 refried black bean ( which you can make from scratch with dried black beans) and 1/2 whole cooked black beans.  The top ingredients added when serving really make this appetizer a meal.  Enjoy the recipe and be sure to comment on this post letting me know what you think about the combination.  ALSO be sure to print the recipe to use in your kitchen collection in the days to come.  Happy Dipping!

Bandito Black Bean Dip

Bandito Black Bean Dip


  • 8 oz of beef Chorizo
  • 7 oz of refried black beans
  • 7 oz can of black beans drained
  • 1 large sweet onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 ripe tomato diced
  • 1/3 cup of pickled jalapeno
  • 1/2 cup shredded Queso blanco
  • nacho chips


  1. In skillet fry chorizo. I use beef for this recipe but you can use pork just be sure to drain 1/2 the grease once ground.
  2. After about 15 minutes the meat should be cooked. Toss in about 1/2 cup of diced onion and garlic. Cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the refried black beans and drained whole black bean to skillet mixing well.
  4. Once this is mixed well and hot remove from skillet to serving bowl allowing about 2 inches at top for remaining ingredient toppers. Sprinkle the cheese on immediately so it melts on the dip.
  5. Top cheese with tomatoes, 1/4 cup of onion and the pickled jalapeno.
  6. Serve with your favorite corn chip.
