This chipotle white bean dip represents my love for Mexican food and beans. However, I just don’t have the time to cook beans from scratch sometimes. As a result, canned beans are a staple in my pantry because you can easily whip up a Mexican dish in a moment’s notice. Because this chipotle white bean dip only takes minutes to prepare, you are ready for that impromptu fiesta. Furthermore, did I happen to mention that this appetizer is vegan? Vegan diets are all the rage right now and there is no dairy or meat in this dip so this will give your party guests a great option at your next soiree.
Serving This Chipotle White Bean Dip
- Not just for serving cold, pour this dip into a casserole dish and heat at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes uncovered with or without cheese or vegan cheese for a more satisfying appetizer on those cold days

- In the mood for a burrito or a crunchy taquito? This makes a great filling for that or possibly layer into a Mexican lasagna casserole
