Easy Cheesy Bean Dip

There is nothing I love quite so much as a stupid easy recipe. Except a stupid easy recipe that is also super delicious.

Lately I've tried several bean dips--they're super cheap and a quick dinner or fun party food. They've all been decent, but none has been worthy of this blog. This one is. It's just delicious. I must admit that the beans in this dip are sort of a vehicle for cheese. I'm okay with that.

This recipe can be made in the crock pot. But if you lack four hours of foresight as I always seem to, you can throw it in the oven for 20-30 minutes and you're good.

Easy Cheesy Bean Dip
adapted from Recipes that Crock
serves 10-ish
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 20-30 minutes in oven; 4 hours in crock pot
Cost: $5.00 (or $.50/serving)
cream cheese: 1.00, sour cream: .70, beans: .50, seasonings: .20, cheese: 1.50, chips: 1.00

8 oz cream cheese--softened
1 C sour cream or Greek yogurt
16 oz can refried beans
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar--divided
tortilla chips

Blend everything, but cheese and tortilla chips.

Spoon half cream cheese/bean mixture into 9x13 inch pan. Layer with half the cheese.

Add remaining cream cheese/bean mixture. Add remaining cheese.

Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling at edges. Or cook in crock pot on low for four hours.

Eat with tortilla chips. (And maybe a veggie thereby if you're one of those righteous types.)



  1. Hi, just dropping by to let you know that this and your Naan recipe were my picks for Oct. 2014 Secret Recipe Club. The Naan was easier than I thought it would be and this dip is to die for. Thank you so much for sharing these recipes. Have a great week.

  2. I adore this dip...we used to make it growing up all the time. Great SRC choice.
