Sweet Potato Bean Dip 1

This Sweet Potato Bean Dip is perfect for dipping chips, vegetables, or using in a vegan quesadilla! I came up with this simple combination because my toddler hated the texture of beans. I figured if she could get past the bean consistency, that she might enjoy the true flavors!

You can make this easily by mashing the two together with a fork for a chunkier texture. I opted for using a high-speed blender or food processor to get a smoother consistency. Our old blender died on us recently, so we just upgraded to a new Blendtec Blender. Let’s just say I have been looking for as many things to blend as possible!

A batch of homemade black beans can be used or even a can of black beans. I love cooking a large pot of black beans in my crock pot and freezing them for later use.
