No party is complete without this addictive, super simple, and delicious game day dip! Full of beans, corn, avocado, red onion, tomatoes, and a surprise ingredient… Italian salad dressing.
If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you probably know that I love me a good football game complete with lots of yummy food. This game day dip is always something I make for every football party. It’s very simple to put together and the best part is, is that it has to be made ahead of time, which means one less thing to do right before the big game.
The super bowl is coming in just a couple of weeks and you can bet that this will be made. You know how you start planning your thanksgiving menu weeks ahead of time? Well, I plan that same way for the super bowl. I love it! Food, football, and family are like my three favorite things in life.
I’m sure someone may have a different name for this recipe but since It always seems to make an appearance for football games, it naturally got the name game day dip.
And trust me when I say that no game is complete without this game day dip. It’s quick and simple to put together and it’s always a crowd favorite.
If there are any leftovers I love to spoon some on top of some brown rice for lunch the next day. It’s really good. It won’t last much longer than that because the avocados will begin to turn brown. If you don’t like the beans called for in the recipe then feel free to use beans that you like. The only seasoning is the Italian salad dressing, I think it’s perfect as is but feel free to add some cumin, garlic powder, etc. You can also use the zesty Italian salad dressing if you want more of a “kick”.
No party is complete without this addictive, super simple, and delicious game day dip! Full of beans, corn, avocado, red onion, tomatoes, and a surprise ingredient... Italian salad dressing.
- 1 can great northern white beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can corn
- 2 avocados, diced
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/3-1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 1/2 a large lime)
- salt & pepper, to taste (if desired)
- Mix all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together until everything is mixed and evenly coated in the salad dressing.
- For best results, let sit in the fridge for 2 hours before needed. This gives time for the flavors to come together.
- Serve with tortilla chips.
Make sure the beans are really well drained after you rinse them. You don't want extra water in the dip.
I usually end up adding closer to 1/2 cup Italian dressing. It all depends on your preference. Make sure you use an Italian dressing that you love the taste of, as that will be the main seasoning/flavor for the dip.
The canned beans and corn are the standard size 15-16 oz cans.
