How do you store leftover dip

To store this 5-Minute Black Bean Dip, it’s essential to transfer any leftover dip into an airtight container and keep it refrigerated for about 3 to 4 days.  Avoid freezing the dip, as freezing can alter its texture and affect the overall taste and quality. Before serving any refrigerated leftovers, give the dip a good stir to redistribute any settled ingredients and reheat.

It’s important to note that its shelf life can vary depending on the freshness of the ingredients used and the cleanliness of the utensils and containers used during preparation and serving. Always check for any signs of spoilage, such as off smells or changes in texture, before consuming leftover dip.

This vegan bean dip can be served as a warm dip or at room temperature. I don’t recommend serving it cold.
