Hot Cheesy Bean Dip!

Bean and cheese dip in a casserole dish.

I know….another dip!  And another dip with beans!!!  I told myself I was done making football watching food, but then this one just kind of snuck up on me.

I had all the ingredients and just had to give it a try.  Of course once I made this Hot Cheesy Bean Dip and realized how delicious it was, I had to share it with you!Scooping up bean dip on a corn chip.

I have gone a bit overboard since I last made my crock pot refried beans.  I created a huge stash for my freezer, and I’ve almost depleted my whole supply.  I found this recipe on Pinterest from Lil Luna and used her recipe as my inspiration.

Instead of adding a packet of taco seasoning, I’ve raided my spice cabinet.  I also added green chilies because they just go so well with beans!  My family had no problem polishing off this dip.

This dip would be perfect with baked tortilla chips or pita chips.

    Oh I love delicious dips Kathy. I’m so glad you shared this one, because it’s so easy. Sometimes we like to dip with oven baked steak fries. This would be a great one for that.
