Loaded Black Bean Dip

 [FTC Standard Disclosure] We received no compensation for this post.

Even though my time lost in the first round this year, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the NCAA tournament the past few weeks. We've been grilling up a lot of tasty game-day food like this Loaded Black Bean Dip.

I got the idea from this recipe from Eating Well magazine but called an audible on the ingredients based on what I had. For ours, we used:
  • Black beans, cooked and smashed with garlic salt, cumin, coriander, 
  • fire-roasted poblano, peeled and diced
  • fire-roasted yellow corn
  • cherry tomatoes, cut in 8ths and seasoned with fine salt
  • diced red onion
  • fire-roasted bell pepper
  • green onions
  • Pepper jack cheese

It really isn't much of a recipe rather just the general idea.  Here's the video from the cook, it pretty much explains everything.

The two plain chicken breasts are for Ramsay while I seasoned ours with Flavor Anonymous Dirty Gringo rub. I also hit the corn with it while the peppers are just lightly rubbed with oil.

I put it back in the Egg with it's residual heat to melt the cheese.

The homemade tortilla chips really put it over the top. I'm sure my version has a lot more calories and fat than Eating Well's version but sometimes you have to have a cheat day.
