Red Bean Dip

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Its game day, so we need a game-day worthy recipe, and this 5 minute Red Bean Dip is the perfect choice! Alright guys, I’ll keep it short today. I’m sure many of you have had a Mexican-style bean dip before, whether it was a cheesy re-fried bean dip or a black bean dip. Today’s dip is a bit different because it’s made from red kidney beans, which are often used in Caribbean cooking (think rice and peas). This bean dip also has only 5 ingredients (minus salt and pepper), takes less than 5 minutes to make, ANNND its vegan. BAM! Who said game day couldn’t be good for you?!
