now that football season is upon us,
it’s only natural for one to crave nachos, chips and dips.
for me, the first dip i crave is this one, a spicy & creamy bean dip.
and it’s just a little bit sinful.
but worth every chip you dip in it.
spicy bean dip
1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream
2 16-oz cans fat free refried beans (regular or spicy)
1 package taco seasoning mix (or 2 tbsp of my homeade mix)
5 drops hot pepper sauce, such as tabasco OR about 1 tbsp+ sriracha (my personal favorite; you can use more, to taste)
2 tbsp dried parsley (or a little over 1/4 cup fresh, chopped parsley)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 8-oz package shredded cheddar cheese
1 8-oz package shredded monterey jack cheese
1. preheat oven to 350.
2. in a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and sour cream. mix in the taco seasoning, green onions, and parsley and blend well. mix in the refried beans, hot pepper sauce, 3/4 of the cheddar cheese and 3/4 of the monterey jack cheese. transfer the mixture to a medium-sized baking dish (mine was a 12 inch oval). top with remaining cheddar & monterey jack cheeses.
3. bake for 20-30 minutes, until cheese is slightly browned.
