Made this dip and followed the recipe exact. The reaction from the party crowd was that it was the best they have had! Good thing I made copies of the recipe to pass out! Great find!

The dip is delicious, but the cook time is WAY off. The first time I made it, I had to cook it for 75 minutes before uncovering it to add the cheese. The second time I upped the temp to 350, and had to cook it 45-50 minutes before adding cheese topping. The end product is wonderful, though.

Easy, inexpensive, and everyone loves it. Definitely cut down on heat. Reduce the Jalapeno and Chipotle by half unless you have a crowd that likes it very HOT. I love hot, but most people don't want to feel the burn later on...

I took this dip to a neighborhood get-together this summer and it got great reviews. I'm making it again this weekend for a potluck. You can also omit the cheese for lactose intolerant guests.

Super easy dip recipe! Moderate amount of heat. Definitely will make again.

My daughter-in-law made this bean dip for a bbq we had. It is SO SO GOOD! There is a little heat to it - which makes it really good. If you like bean dip at all - you will love this. It did make quite a bit - but that's okay - it tastes even better the next day when it's heated up again.

This had just the right amount of heat for me. I didn't think my kids would touch it, but my 3 year old kept dipping into it and actually got really upset when I took it away. The one can of beans made way too much just to have at home though, so I'll wait to have company next time.

This was very good! Will definately make it again. Made this with the Slow-Cooked Carnita recipe. Both recipes were in the April May 2011 issue.
