I love a good black bean dip! And especially this one, as it’s cheesy, creamy, and ridiculously easy to make in your blender.

As you might be able to tell from the pics, I made my own tortilla chips using corn tortillas by frying them in a dry skillet and cutting into wedges- that’s it!

But this black bean dip is not just for dipping. It’s also one of my favorite spreads for quesadillas and I’ve also used it as the bottom layer of a layer-dip, topped with salsa and guacamole. No cheese necessary!

To make this dip, first you’ll want to access if you need to soak your cashews in water or not. This depends on if you have a high-powered blender (like a Vitamix).

If NOT soaking the cashews (only if using a high-powered blender), add the DRY cashews to the blender with the nutritional yeast and blend until it resembles a powder, about 10 seconds or so. Then add all the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

If you need to soak the cashews overnight (if NOT using a high-powered blender), drain the cashews before adding to the blender. Then add all remaining ingredients on blend until smooth.

You may need to add a little extra water and stir to get it to combine evenly, but a 1/2 cup works perfectly for me.

Serve this dip with chips, or as a quesadilla base for cheese. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups, or 6 servings. It will last about a week in the fridge, in an airtight container.
