Sausage and Black Bean Dip


This dip, packed with sausage, salsa, and cheese, is both creamy and chunky, making it a hearty snack for one or a group. Try this dip instead of ready-made queso at your next gathering (or just enjoy it solo; we won't tell).

4 cups of dip


  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained

  • ¼ cup sour cream or plain yogurt

  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil

  • 1/2 (1-pound) Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Hot Sausage

  • 2 tablespoons salsa

  • 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar or Mexican cheese blend

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped cilantro


  1. In a food processor, mix beans, 1/4 cup sour cream, garlic, and salt. Pulse until smooth.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat for about 30 seconds. Add Jimmy Dean sausage and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until browned, stirring frequently to break up the sausage into small pieces, then drain. Move the sausage to a separate pot and set aside.

  3. Add the black bean mixture to the Jimmy Dean sausage. Bring to medium heat and stir often until dip is hot, about 5 minutes.

  4. Spoon the hot dip into a bowl and top with salsa, cheese, remaining sour cream, and cilantro.

  5. Serve with chips or in a tortilla, and enjoy!

Cook's Note:

Use the leftover Jimmy Dean Sausage to make sausage patties or crumbles to serve with eggs.
