Championship Bean Dip Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

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

"Delicious! Made this at a family gathering and it was a hit! A recipe remembered and drooled over! I even accidently forgot the spices and it was still delicious!"

"Love this bean dip! I first made it for a Mexican Themed family reunion dinner and it was a HUGE hit with everyone! Easy and DELISH! I make it as directed with just a bit more cumin & chili powder."

"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."
