Spooky Halloween Black Bean Dip

Spooky Vegan Halloween Dip

With Halloween only weeks away, the bombardment of sweets is just around the corner. We’ve got some tricks (and treats!) up our sleeves, but there’s nothing spooky about a healthy holiday snack every now and then.

This black bean dip has a kick to it that’s delicious but not overwhelming. Lime juice brightens the flavors, and a splash of hot sauce keeps things spicy.

Use cookie cutters to give your homemade tortilla chips a festive look, and that bowl of candy corn will have some real competition.
