My friends and neighbors expect me to bring this irresistible dip to every gathering. When I arrive, they ask, "You brought your bean dip, didn't you?" If there are any leftovers, we use them to make bean and cheese burritos the next day. I've given out this recipe a hundred times. -Wendi Wavrin Law, Omaha, Nebraska

"I made this for Easter because of all the reviews. Even making it I thought there was not enough beans and a lot of creams and cheese. I wasn't satisfied or my family. I was left with a lot leftover. It is more of a creamy cheese dip. I am not sure how it is called a bean dip. Or how I am so differed with the reviews."

"Has a good taste. Unfortunately I didn't a small slow cooker, so it wasn't as smooth as it should have been."

"A easy and tasty cheese dip with beans as an added plus. You can totally spice it up, if that's your thing."
