Bean Dip Deluxe- A Meal By Itself!


A while back, I mentioned I enjoyed hot snacks, and the one I listed was bean dip. My version is loaded with goodies to a point of being enough to eat for a meal- just add tortilla chips! My recipe goes pretty much like this:
1 can refried beans
1/2 of same can water
4-5 oz of chunky salsa (medium heat)
1/2 chopped onion
1 chopped red bell pepper
1/2 lb. of browned ground beef
1 fresh tomato, chopped
2 oz of liquid taco sauce
6-8 oz of shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
cumin and chili powder to taste
Simmer all ingredients until smooth and hot. Use as dip with Tortilla chips.
It goes quickly, and if some is left over, can be reheated easily.

Hot snacks or finger foods are my favs too. You really took the bean dip to a whole new level. there would be no leftovers at our house.

The Good Cook said...

I love "snacks" even more so than a meal.. this bean dip sounds delicious and I would eat it like a meal!

Vickie said...

My guys would love this with the game on the weekends! Nice idea.

Katherine- With all the other stuff in it, it's not so "beany" tasting!
GoodCook- With just my wife and I, I will do snacks for supper often..
Vick- Made for that purpose! In a crock pot, they can munch all game long!

blueviolet said...

That sounds really, really good!

buffalodick said...

BlueV- Bean dip and I have a love/hate relationship...I love it when I'm eating it, but the next day in the john- not so much!

Kate said...

Sounds like something I'd eat for dinner - for sure.

Brian Miller said...

good stuff...i would just add some diced jalepeno and some sour cream on top!

buffalodick said...

Kate- It's a meal deal!
Brian- Had both in the house, too! Good idea!

Barbara said...

Ummmmm.... my tummy and beans don't like each other. But it sure looks good!

buffalodick said...

Barb- There is some pain that is worth it, some isn't!

G-Man said...

I usually substitute Bob Evans Hot sausage instead of ground beef.
But I understand how delicate the senior stomach can be Buff...:-)

Intense Guy said...

That looks yummy... add it to some crackers or stale french bread and I'm good to go..

Ily said...

Sounds like a nice, Sunday mid-afternoon snack! Add a couple beers and it's a party! Thanks for the recipe.

All Our Fingers in the Pie said...

I love bean dip. This looks like one my co-irkers (stole that from Mags) would love.

Chris said...

Pass me the fritos scoops!

Speaking of fritos is there anything less appetizing then when you first open a can of their bean dip?

Won't have to do that ever again, we have BD's Bean Dip!

Sounds tasty! Your post brought to mind another version I haven't made in far too long. Slip Mexican chorizo out of its casing and cook with onion, then add refried pinto beans. Simple and hearty. Gonna have to make it again sometime soon.

jolie-jordan said...

Like I've said before...give me the bowl and a spoon. (smiley)

Just telling it like it is said...

mmmmmm sounds wonderful!!!

Donna-FFW said...

Geez BD, I thought at first you said hot snatch.. merci me do I apologize.

Lea Ann said...

oh..my..gosh this sounds good. Definitely saving this recipe! And with some diced avocado sprinkled on top....(insert evil grin here)

Jen said...

I'm with Brian. Gotta have jalapeno in the bean dip.

Jen- easy enough to add some!
Ace- You're back! Good to hear from you!

Realliveman said...

Sound to yummy to be true.

buffalodick said...

R.L.M.- Guys dive into this like mad...

Chef E said...

I grew up on that canned bean dip, because my dad loved it, but I am not sure why they never made their own, goodness knows we had beans often enough during the week! I just had my first black bean dip on Sunday, it had been a long while, and I can see your enthusiasm for loving it! was good!

Yours looks great...

buffalodick said...

ChefE- Black beans are good, but come across a little gritty sometimes- they need meat in the dip! I refried my own beans once, and it was more work that it was worth- but they were good!

JihadGene said...

Good stuff! Sausage instead of ground beef for me.

buffalodick said...

Gene- Work quite well with recipe!

The Blonde Duck said...

I could live on bean dip. No one else would want to live with me, but I'd be delighted.

buffalodick said...

BlondeD- I don't make it as often as I should!

Geof said...

Ok I was going to have dinner after I read about the Mac and Cheese but now I am making up some killer nachos after reading this.

sheri... said...

ok...you toss me a bone and now i'm begging you to tell me about the play dough on the movie screen...pretty please with a cherry on top????

Ruth said...

Love refried beans and this sounds like the perfect dip to me!!

buffalodick said...

tracie- sausage is good in it too!
Geof- Welcome!
sheri- It was Christmas day, about 1960, the adults wanted to get rid of us kids for a few hours, so they could have a few drinks... Dropped us off at a movie-"Babes In Toyland"(sounds like porno!) My one cousin brought a can of Playdoh, and we all sat in the balcony and threw wads of it at the screen- which it stuck to.. ushers were looking high and low to see who was doing it, but never caught us!
Ruth- It has some substance to it!
