Creamy smashed black beans, cream cheese, and raspberry chipotle jam combine for this unique dip that’s sure to please.
This is the last appetizer recipe I’m posting before the Superbowl. I hope I’ve given you guys some ideas for snacks to prepare if you’re throwing or going to a party. Who are you guys hoping will win? As I mentioned the other day, I’m a big Peyton Manning fan, so I’m hoping the Broncos win on Sunday.
After making raspberry chipotle jam, I started searching for ways to use it up. We really enjoyed it slathered on some cheese and crackers, but I had 4 jars of it… After some internet searching, I came across this recipe for Raspberry Chipotle Black Bean Dip. I was intrigued at the flavor combination. I knew I liked all of the main components on their own, but I wasn’t sure exactly how it would come out.
I’m glad I went ahead and made this dip. It’s quite tasty and more unique than the standard buffalo chicken dip. One thing I observed is that the jam on it’s own has a great subtle kick to it. In this dip, you didn’t get the kick as much. It was much more subtle thanks to the creamy beans and the cream cheese. This makes the dip more appetizing to a broad audience, which is always good when taking a snack to a party.
If you don’t have homemade raspberry chipotle jam, you can find raspberry chipotle sauce at most grocery stores.

1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can black beans
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup raspberry chipotle sauce (or homemade raspberry chipotle sauce)

Melt butter in small skillet. Add onion and sauté until slightly brown. Remove from heat and place the onion in a bowl to cool.
Dump the can of black beans into a small pan. Add the salt and cumin. Stir over medium heat, mashing the beans as it cooks. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the liquid reduces and the beans have a smooth, yet chunky consistency. Remove from heat.
Add the cream cheese to the bowl of onions and stir to combine.
Place the cream cheese in the center of an oven-safe dish.
Spoon the beans around the cream cheese mixture.
Spoon a well into the center of the cream cheese. Pour the raspberry chipotle sauce or jam into the well.
