Warm Bean Dip

As I sit here and type this, I am so stuffed from dinner. Like, roll me over, put a blanket on me and wake me up in the morning - stuffed. However, I look at this picture of bean dip and I want to eat it all. How is that even possible? Because I just love food and I know it loves me. I have the jiggly thighs to prove it.
I hope some of y'all are getting excited and geared up for the Super Bowl. I know I am gearing up and excited about eating Super Bowl party food. Today I'm going to throw one more into the mix and then I promise I won't pester you with more party food! Well, I can't promise, but I'll try really, super hard.
Ingredients:
2 cans (16 oz.) refried beans
1 can (10.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 tbsp. taco seasoning
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese
diced jalapeños, for topping (optional)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 325f degrees. Spray an 9×9 baking dish with nonstick spray. Drain excess juice from tomatoes using a strainer. In a medium bowl, combine refried beans, drained tomatoes and taco seasoning. Spread into baking dish and spread around evenly. Spread sour cream on top of bean layer.

Top with shredded cheese and diced jalapeños. Cover and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite tortilla chips.
*Cook’s Note: This is the basic recipe but you can definitely turn up the heat and flair with this. Use a can of tomatoes with diced green chiles (like Rotel) to turn up the heat or try using Pepper Jack cheese. I also enjoy adding sliced onions to this sometimes too.

Enjoy!

  12. The husband recently requested some version of a "chili-and-cheese dip." I wonder if I can trick him into eating this dip. (He's anti-refried beans!) I bet I can if mine looks as good as yours!

  13. Scratchmade - cover it with enough cheese and maybe he won't even notice....orrrrr, add a little chili on top of the beans, that might be mighty tasty too. :)

  15. Can I come spend the Superbowl with you? Why do we have to have games and superbowls to enjoy these ridiculously naughty foods?!?!? WHY!?!
    I agree, I love food and it loves me....a little too much. I wish I liked working out more, but instead I will just work out my palette!

  30. This sounds so yummy! I am wanting to make a crockpot dip for my daughter's birthday party...do you think this would work to make it in there? How long would you put it in for? We're eating about an hour after the party starts and I won't have access to an oven, so it'd be a lot easier to do it in a slow cooker. Thoughts?
