The Easiest (and Tastiest) Bean Dip Ever

My friend J came over recently and we served this dip.  She liked it so much she asked for the recipe…. as almost everyone does.  And what kind of friend would I be if I kept such a yummy treat to myself.  Enjoy!

 

The Simple Family’s Version of Mrs Delap’s Famous Bean Dip

Serves 12

1 (15.5 oz) can refried black beans

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese

1 cup sour cream

1 (4oz) can diced green chilis (I have been known to substitute a chunky salsa here instead)

2 cups cheddar shredded (fancy shredded cheese will melt faster though it doesn’t make any difference in taste.)

2 teaspoons instant minced onions

1 (large) bag Frito’s corn chips (or tortilla chips or potato chips… it doesn’t seem to matter)

Place all ingredients except the chips in a small crockpot.  Allow to heat, stirring occasionally until thoroughly blended.  Serve hot right from the crockpot. NOTE:  May also be used as a filling for burritos, or a topping for tostadas.

If you are in a hurry you can put the crock in the microwave for 5 min or so to jump start the process.

You’ll note that I didn’t list any nutrition data and that’s because… well, with that much cheese, what’s the point really?
