This Black Bean & Avocado Dip recipe pairs hearty black beans with creamy avocado and bold salsa for a cool dip that is perfect for dipping tortilla chips or, my favorite, carrot chips!

So, let's talk for a minute about how this recipe is very similar to another bean dip recipe here on The Two Bite Club.  To be fair, the other recipe uses a different kind of bean, but the basics are the pretty much the same: beans, avocado, salsa, and a little seasoning.

I honestly didn't realize the similarities until after I made this black bean dip, photographed it, and started typing out the recipe.  Whoops!  I just had to share anyway, though, because you can never have too many variations on bean dip if you ask me.  And I scarfed this one down like nobody's business, which means it's def blog-worthy!

I think what all of this means is that it's safe to say I have a love for Mexican inspired dips.  My mind and palette go the flavors that I love instinctively, I guess.  Beans make an awesome, hearty base for dips, and avocado gives the dip a nice and creamy texture.  The salsa brings a little kick, and the cilantro keeps it all bright and fresh.  I mean, what's not to love?!

Lately, I've been using carrot chips as my dipping vessel, but, naturally, good ol' tortilla chips are perfect!  Do you love bean dip as much as I do?  Let me know in the comments below!
