How to make black bean corn feta dip

Step 1: Prep

Drain and rinse the black beans and corn, finely dice the red onion, chop the cilantro, remove seeds and dice the jalapeño (if using). 

Step 2: Char the corn

If you want to use BBQ charred corn, grill it on the bbq. Then, using a sharp knife, cut along the side of the cob to release the corn. Use approximately 3 corn on the cob or 1 ½ cups.

Step 3: Combine

In a large bowl, combine the black beans, corn, crumbled feta cheese, red onion, cilantro and jalapeño (if using). Gently mix the ingredients to evenly distribute them.

Step 4: Add the dressing

In a separate bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper to create the dressing.

Pour the dressing over the corn and black bean mixture. Gently toss everything together to ensure all ingredients are well coated with the dressing.

Step 5: Taste and Chill

Taste the dip and adjust the seasoning as needed. If you prefer a spicier dip, you can add more jalapeño or a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Let the dip chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. This step is optional but recommended for the best flavor.
