Easy Mexican Bean Dip ~ Vegan and Oil-free!
There’s this Mexican restaurant we visit in Asheville sometimes called Pappas & Beer. The food is pretty good (for restaurant food) and we can order things that aren’t loaded with salt and oil, which is why we like it there. But when you first walk in, they give you a bowl of bean dip with your corn chips. We don’t eat either since the chips are LOADED with oil (no salt though which is good). But the dip has so much salt, you can barely taste anything else! Oh, and after we tasted it once we found out they put cheese in it, too. Bleh.
Dr. Klaper mentions restaurant food in his video Salt Sugar, and Oil: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. He’s very funny when talking about it… “Hmm, should we have Indian-flavored salt, sugar, and oil? How about Thai salt, sugar, and oil? Oooo, Mexican-flavored salt, sugar and oil is really good!” And he’s right. Most restaurants overuse all three ingredients? Why? To keep you coming back of course! These three ingredients are addictive, plain and simple.
SO… I thought I’d make some flavorful bean dip without all the salt. This recipe is so easy to make, you won’t believe it. It’s a yummy dip for a party or to take to a potluck, or just to enjoy for yourself!
