Gunther’s Gourmet Spicy Black Bean Dip with Lime

Gunthers DipOkay, when I first tried Gunther’s Gourmet Black Bean Dip with Lime, I actually thought it was their Black and White Bean Salsa. And, after trying it thought, “Wow, this would make a great bean dip!” Well, it’s fortunate that this was not lost on Gunther’s and that they actually marketed as, well…a bean dip. And what a remarkable bean dip it is.

Indeed, it’s easy to see why this bean dip won a 2012 Hot Pepper Award and 2013 Fiery Food Challenge Award. It’s a superb dip, and of such a sublime nature that among its all-natural ingredients it has sweet potatoes and Bermuda Onions. I love both of these additions because they add a mild sweetness and understated complexity that really set this bean dip apart from any I’ve had, and are a fitting complement to the rest of the high-quality ingredients. The full rundown consists of: tomatoes, black beans, sweet potatoes, Bermuda onions, jalapeno peppers, lime juice, fresh garlic, honey, sea salt, cumin, habanero chilies, cilantro, cayenne pepper, black pepper, oregano, herbs and spices. This expertly crafted combination of ingredients produces not only a bean dip of impeccable flavor, but of remarkable consistency; thick enough to stand up, and stay on, whatever someone is scooping it with, yet, supple and velvety enough that one doesn’t have to use a 2 x 4 to get it out of the jar ;-) . As far as piquancy goes, this product shouldn’t be too spicy for the person who only sometimes indulges in spicy fare, and for those who do more than occasionally, the exceptional flavor more than makes up for any lack of heat.

Gunther’s Spicy Black Bean Dip with Lime stands up amazingly well. This factor, along with its well executed complex flavor, make it a must for bean dip connoisseurs. A sublime ziggurat of wonderful bean flavor, accentuated with a supporting cast of high-quality, all-natural ingredients.

All in all, this is not your average bean dip, and one that must be experienced to be truly appreciated. What’s more, Gunther’s Gourmet Groceries, LLC, out of Richmond Virginia is not the typical gourmet grocery; one can tell that making the finest products is a passion and goal for them, and that they devote the necessary time and attention to bring this about. And not only do they make this wonderful dip, but they also produce salsas, marinades and vinaigrettes.
