Spider Web Black Bean Dip

Halloween has always been known for its nevereneding line of sweets, but sometimes all of that sugar can be overwhelming to both our budgets and our waitlines. With this easy-to-make recipe, we can keep the Halloween spirit alive at under 120 calories per 1/4 cup serving, and still enjoy a snickers bar or two without the guilt. You can get really creative by placing a small plastic spider on top, or even make one out of black olives!

Spider Web Black Bean Dip


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. jalapeno, minced
  • Two 15-oz. cans low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 tsp. fresh lime juice
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and jalepno and cook for another minute.

Place the beans in a food processor. Add the onion mixture and the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth. Spread the dip into a wide shallow bowl or serving dish.

To make the spider web garnish; stir the sour cream and lime juice together in a small bowl. Place into the end of a small plastic bag, snip a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe the sour cream mixture onto the dip in the shape of a spider web. Serve with tortilla chips.
