Haunted Mansion Black Bean Dip

This year I wanted to create a dinner for Halloween inspired by Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion ride and came up with this Haunted Mansion Black Bean Dip for our appetizer. Given the Haunted Mansion is a retirement home for ghosts, filled with spider webs and is dark and creepy. Most of the food for my feast is dark or black, so black beans for the dip were a perfect fit.  Here is an easy way to add a spider web to your dish with ingredients already on hand for the recipe.

Spooky, healthy and fun to eat, Haunted Mansion Black Bean Dip is perfect for any Halloween celebration or event.


  • 15 oz. canned black beans (or prepared dry beans)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • black olives



  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth.
  2. Garnish with sour cream web by piping circles on top of the dip and dragging out with a toothpick to make the web.
  3. Garnish with a black olive spider. Cut one olive in half for the body. Use a small piece from a second olive for the head. Cut eight legs out of the remaining olive.
  4. Serve with black olives and fresh vegetables, such as cucumber and celery.

Prepare dry black beans

  1. To use dry black beans instead of canned, rinse your dry beans and sort out any that don’t look quite right. Place in a large pan and cover the beans completely with water. Add a 1 tsp of salt and bring the beans to a boil over medium heat. Uncover and reduce the heat to simmer the beans until tender, approximately 1 to 1½ hours.
