Balsamic-Spiked Fiesta Black Bean Hummus

Our balsamic vinegar-spiked black bean dip recipe is perfect for all you hummus lovers out there. Try this recipe in place of your traditional formula, which normally includes garbanzo beans, lemon juice, and parsley. Here, black beans, lime juice, and fresh cilantro take regular hummus to the next level—and an unexpected splash of balsamic vinegar brings out the sweet, earthy flavors of the ingredients.

Enjoy this vegetarian side with pitas, chips, and layered taco dips. Better yet, smear it over tortillas and fill with seared vegetables for a fiber and protein packed burrito.
