This tangy and spicy Pinto Bean Dip is not only bursting with flavor, but it’s also incredibly easy to make. With just a few simple ingredients and a blender, you can whip up a delicious dip that will have your taste buds dancing.

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: About 3 cups 1x


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 cups pinto beans, drained (or 15-ounce can)
  • 6 slices pickled jalapenos
  • 2 teaspoons pickled jalapeno brine
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan. Once warm, add the onions and garlic, cooking for about 6 minutes until very soft.
  2. Add the onions and garlic to a food processor with the beans, pickled jalapenos, brine, and chili powder. Mix on high for a couple of minutes until almost smooth. Add salt and lime juice to taste, and pulse until your desired consistency.
  3. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge to keep fresh for up to 3-4 days. The dip can be warmed up in the mircowave or stovetop on low if serving warm.


  • Top with cotija cheese or salsa for a burst of flavor.
  • Add cheese and pop into the oven for a warm cheesy bean dip.
  • If using homemade pinto beans, make sure they are very soft otherwise they will not blend smoothly.
