Wow the crowd with this Chili Cheese Bean Dip! A little kick of spice and TONS of flavor, this is perfect with tortilla or corn chips.
This Chili Cheese Bean Dip is a recipe that has been around in my family for decades. Super easy and cheesy–perfect for your next party!
If you’re having a larger party, I highly recommend doubling the batch. This is one of those appetizers that is gone in a flash–and be sure to arm yourself with the recipe. EVERYONE will be asking how to make it. Traditionally, we serve this with Fritos Scoops, but I tried my favorite Frontera tortilla chips this time and they were delish.
I don’t think turkey would hold up the same way. I used a 90/10 blend, but even 80/20 would work, you just will want to drain it quickly.
As far as the Chili beans go, I like the medium spiced ones for an extra kick. If you’re super sensitive to heat, go ahead and use the mild ones. The beans are blended in a chopper to turn into an almost refried bean consistency. As tempting as it is, actual canned refried beans don’t work to replace the chili beans–the chili beans have spices and a sauce that makes the dip.Print
