Black Bean Corn Feta Dip

We make this black bean corn feta dip almost every week – it’s that good. I’ve made it for Andrés’ family & for my family, & it was well liked. I also made a double batch for Andrés to bring to a work party last week. It’s fantastic & easy peasy.


  • 1 can of Bush’s black beans
  • 1 can of Del Monte whole kernel yellow corn
  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (or two packets of Splenda)*
  • 3/4 – 1 cup of crumbled feta


Drain the beans & corn, combine in a bowl. Add the ACV, olive oil, & sugar. Chop up the green onions & dump them in with the feta. Stir carefully so the feta doesn’t fall apart.

Serve with Tostitos Scoops.

*We prefer the Splenda because it’s less gritty.

Recipe is from my friend Cara.

    I’m sure that by now (many months or maybe it has been years after I shared this recipe with you) you are a pro at making this dip. Everyone has their own unique way of making it after they follow the recipe for the first time. My pointers on the recipe:

    1. Rinse the corn and the beans (separately) in a colander. This takes a lot of the sodium and gross juice out of the canned items.
    2. Before you add the corn and beans to the bowl, whisk the wet ingredients with the sugar. This lets the sugar dissolve a little bit before you add the fresh ingredients.
    3. Once you have whisked the sugar, olive oil, and vinegar and once you’ve added the rinsed (and drained) beans and corn, add the green onions and feta. Fold the mix with a spatula. Voila! We like our dip slightly chilled in the fridge for about 30 minutes after making it.

    We have served it with the following: Fritos Scoops, Tostitos Scoops, and Hint of Lime Tostitos.

    Mmm. I want it right now. Too bad we are stupid and never restock our pantry after we use the corn and black beans.

    Much love,


    PS: Thanks for whoring my recipe on the interwebs. JK :)

      these are excellent tips that i should’ve included. i do almost all if them except the whisking. i’ll have to try that!
