Black Bean & Artichoke Dip/Spread

How about a dip that not only tastes good but is a healthy take on an appetizer?  Check this one out!

Serves: 16
Serving Size: 2 tbsp.
  • ½ cup black beans
  • 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts
  • ½ cup bottled salsa
  • ½ cup mixed black and green olives, pitted
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 green onions, green part only, roughly chopped
  • 4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ tbsp. Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend
  • ½ cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  1. Using basket attachment, rinse and drain black beans first, then artichoke hearts.
  2. In base of Quick Chef® Pro System fitted with blade attachment, combine salsa, artichoke hearts, olives, garlic and green onions. Cover and turn handle to coarsely chop.
  3. Add cream cheese, seasoning blend and cheese. Cover and turn handle to process until well combined.
  4. Stir in black beans and place in a serving bowl. Refrigerate until serving.

Just another great reason to have the Quick Chef® Pro System.    I use mine multiple times during the week - easy to use and cleans up super easy (dishwasher safe!)
