Bean dip recipes - 9 recipes

By Lingonberrylane

I personally love bean dip. My dad used to make a gigantic bowl of bean dip every weekend for me. I remember sitting back on his old yellow and brown 70’s style couch, snacking away every page turn of my book. He always made the same mix of refried beans, rotel and cheese on the stove top, letting the flavors meld and the outside perimeter of dip to bubble. I now make my own combination of bean dip using whatever beans I have on hand from pinto, refried, black beans to even black eyed peas. Sometimes I will top my dip with sour cream, green onions, cilantro, salsa or black olives if I am feeling ambitious. I love starting my week out with a large batch of bean dip and eat it through out the week as a snack with chips, a filling for quesadillas or burritos, a base for tostadas , breakfast with huevos rancheros or a zesty side along with rice and chicken.
