This is a spin-off of a Mexican dip I had once. The original was wicked good, but I was going through an I’m-so-over-Mexican-dip phase and decided to switch it up. Take it to a party—I'll bet you no one else will bring anything like it! —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
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
My husband’s great-grandmother and I spent time together creating this recipe after trying a similar version from his aunt. So it not only tastes delicious, it also has a lot of sentimental value. —Amber Massey, Coppell, Texas
Folks always seem to flock to the snack table when the lineup includes a warm cheesy dip. When my brother-in-law brought this dip to our house for a get-together, everyone asked for the recipe. He first tasted this delectable dip at a football party. We've made it many times—it's so popular.—Katrina Turner, West Chester, Ohio
