Quick and Easy Bean & Cheese Dip

05/12/2012 - 7 comments

The other day my daughter and I were hungry for lunch and for some reason neither of us wanted a traditional lunch.  We wandered around opening cabinets and opening the fridge and the only thing we could agree upon was a can of organic refried beans.


The magical fruit.

But what to do with those beans?

We also discovered a bag of organic corn tortilla chips.  Ok, refried beans and tortilla chips, we were sensing a theme and I rolled with it.

I found a block of cheddar cheese in the fridge and pulled out my jar of my homemade taco seasoning and got to work making a very quick and easy bean & cheese dip using clean ingredients, and mostly organic as well, but that is not a requirement for this recipe.

And I was actually surprised how good it turned out.

First, warm up the beans.

Second add a tsp of taco seasoning mix (check out my amazing taco seasoning recipe).

Third, blend in 1/2 cup of sour cream.

Fourth, melt in 2 oz. of cheddar cheese.

Stir until fully blended and serve with chips.  I prefer the organic tortilla chips from Meijer or Target.

I shamefully admit that my daughter and I ate the whole thing in one sitting.

It. was. that. good.
