Championship Bean Dip Recipe

Championship Bean Dip Recipe

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

"This was very mild with mild picante sauce. I increased the cream cheese to 8 oz to feed a congregation. A serving remained. It was a nice change from baked bean or buffalo chicken dip."

"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."

"This is one recipe I return to again and again, modifying it to fit what I've got in my pantry. It's great with 2 cups of cheddar cheese (total) in place of the Monterey Jack cheese. Adding up to 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and some finely chopped onions is an adjustment I frequently make. This one is obviously a keeper!"

"This was great! I've never been a big refried beans fan, so I cut the amount of beans in half and I thought it was delecious. A very nice change from the traditional nacho cheese dip. I'll be making this over and over again."

"This recipe is amazing, just the way it is. Comes out the best when you use a "thin" salsa/hot sauce, that isn't chunky (If you're in Texas, "El Fenix" hot sauce is the best for this!) I have made this recipe probably 20 times in the last year for various events & have to give out the recipe every time. It is requested no matter where we are going. Who ever came up with it is a genius!"
