Helpful hints

  • Serve the dip on flour tortillas when making tacos, or serve with homemade flour tortilla chips or pita chips for dipping.
  • Using fresh pinto beans that have been soaked instead of canned beans greatly reduces the sodium content of the dip.
  • Beans are high in potassium and phosphorus. This recipe shows you how to include a small amount of beans and still limit these minerals in your kidney diet.

A-maze-ing Bean Dip

This recipe is confusing (and so was a chef for years). 36 servings? I would only be able to have one of two, so why bother when I'm the only one with CKD? I also think there is too much phosphorus but since we could only way about a tablespoon, we'd need a large group of people to make this for. I'm looking for superbowl snacks and so far I'm really disappointed in your recipes! Hummus would be healthier as well as a cucumber salsa. I'm at the point in my life where I'm ready to eat anything I want. This CKD Diet is boring and expensive!

I agree with Soozinn. Seems like a lot of phosphorus in many of the ingredients.

36 serv ings! Seems like most recipies have a large amount of cream cheese and sour cream. The beans alone would jack up my phosphorus--and then there is sour cream and cream cheese. I can cut the recipe in half and in half again and it is still a problem. A red bell pepper is $2 ea and then the green one can be almost that much. Cilantro and all the cheeses make it expensive and very high phorphorus because even one quarter of the recipe is a lot for one person to eat.

I cook for one. Can this recipe be frozen for a later use? Dietitian comment: I have not tried it but it might work.

I cooked one cup of pinto beans which turned into 3 cups which is what I used in the dip. I also used Bush's white homey when 2 cans drained was the 2 1/2 cups I needed was this correct? I used a large food processor My weight watchers group loved it...was this correct. I served it with pita bread and pita chips Dietitian comment: Actually the pinto beans portion is 1 cup measured after cooking, not the 3 cups.

i am confused. I thought beans were a no no for CKD Moderator comment: Most important is the amount of potassium and phosphorus you get from a serving and practicing portion control. The one cup of beans in this recipe is divided by 36 servings. This is much less potassium and phosphorus than a 1/2 cup of 1 cup serving of beans as an entree or side dish.
