Hot Cheesy Bean Dip

Hot Cheesy Bean Dip


I am a huge fan of dips! I like dips of all sorts and among my favorites are bean based dips and cheese based dips. Not too long ago I came across a baked bean dip or a santa fe bean dip on Eating Well Living Thin that had both beans and cheese in it and I just had to try it! The beans in this dip come in the form of refried beans and I made my own using black beans. Refried beans are typically cooked in lard or bacon fat which I did not have on hand so I just cooked up some bacon and left the bacon in the beans which added a ton of bacony goodness to the dip. The cheese in this dip comes from both cream cheese and grated cheese and I used a combination of cheddar and monterrey jack. In addition to the cheese the dip is made extra creamy by adding some sour cream. This bean dip is flavoured with taco seasoning and once again I made my own blend. Of course you couldn't have a texmex dip like this without some heat so there are some chopped green chilies and salsa in there for good measure. Finally, this bean dip is taken over the edge by baking it to melt all of the cheese into a gooey mess and meld all of the flavours together. This hot cheesy bean dip was so addictively good! I tried some too soon after it came out of the oven and I was immediatly hooked and continued eating despite the fact that I was huffing and puffing to cool my mouth down. Needless to say, the dip disappeared really quickly and I will have to make some more soon.

I agree ... dips are the best! One of the things I love about parties is making, and eating, dips.

Your bean dip sounds down-right awesome! We make something similar and it is always a hit.

Kristin said...

Sounds amazing! Green chilies are another one of my favorite "secret" ingredients in my recipes!!! I always keep them around! Chorizo would be amazing in this too!!

I love bean dip, and this looks delicious, Kevin! I'll have to give it a try. I usually use it in cold dips, but this would be great with the cooler weather we've been having.

Kevin said...

Linda - one scoop at a time: The baking dish was 6 1/2 inches across and 2 inches deep.

Chris said...

You're a big fan of dips? Are you insulting your blogroll (ha ha ha).

Seriously, this looks spectacular and ready for a party.

This is right down our alley...And it will be our dinner some time this week!

Muneeba said...

Dips are the perfect crowd pleaser ... if you see ppl being too formal around each other at a party, just bring out this dip and watch them loosen up instantly! That's the effect it would have on me anyway :)

I made this dip last week - it was great! I added some diced jarred jalepenos & a few dashes of Tabasco for a little more heat though. Will definitely make this again!

lizzafezza said...

This dip is soooo good, the only down fall is that I could stop eating it until it was all gone! Not good for the waistline!

lizzafezza said...

I meant - could not stop eating it DOH!
