Warm Bean Dip

So I found another great recipe on my favorite place to hang out at, Pinterest! I changed it up a little and the outcome was fantastic! This Warm Bean Dip takes very few ingredients and the flavor is AMAZING! It makes a lot too! You can make one 9×13 pan which is what we did the first time. The second time, I used two smaller glass containers to bake it in so that I could take one dip to Steve’s side of the family and the other to my side of the family as an appetizer on Thanksgiving. The Warm Bean Dip was a big hit at both places!

Printable DirectionsWarm Bean Dip

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 pkg taco seasoning

  • 2 – 16oz cans refried beans

  • 2 cups finely shredded Mexican blend or mild cheddar cheese

  • 2 cups finely shredded Mexican blend or mild cheddar cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Apply non-stick cooking spray to a 9×13 pan or two smaller pans (between 7-8 inches). In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese and sour cream until well blended. Add all the contents of one package of taco seasoning mix. Stir until well combined. Stir in both cans of refried beans until well blended. Add 2 cups of finely shredded Mexican blend or mild cheddar cheese and stir till well combined. I used what cheese I had on hand which was one package of Colby and Monterey Jack cheese and a Fiesta blend of cheeses.

Pour bean mix into the prepared pan(s). Evenly sprinkle last 2 cups of finely shredded Mexican blend or mild cheddar cheese on top.

Bake for 30 minutes until warm throughout.

Serve hot with tortilla chips. The bean dip is smooth and full of flavor. The cheese is ooey gooey goodness on top! My husband hates refried beans but couldn’t get enough of this Warm Bean Dip! The cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning really transformed the beans into something wonderful! I do think though a mixed cheese is best because it melts better versus just shredded mild cheddar cheese only. We’ve done it both ways and it’s just a preference of mine to use a mixed cheese on top (the mild cheddar mixed into the beans worked fine). Enjoy!
