Spicy Bean Dip Recipe

Dionne Baldwin | Try Anything Once

Spicy bean dip will be a huge hit at your next party! Whip up some homemade tortilla chips too, and you are set!

For a warm dip with a little kick, grab what you need to make this spicy bean dip. A friend described this as enchilada dip because the flavor does taste a bit like enchiladas. Totally worth it.

I mean, enchiladas are pretty fabulous. There’s spice, and cheese, and the smokiness of cumin, which you’ll have here too. It’s pretty addicting.

It’s also great for a mixed crowd, because technically, it’s vegetarian, so long as you make sure the refried beans are marked as vegetarian too. Just watch that, because a lot of time, they include pork, unless marked otherwise!

Last time I served this dip there were only a few of us, but somehow my guests, with help from me of course, finished it off as the day went on. We had a casual get together that began in the morning and lasted until late evening.

What can I say? We enjoy each other’s company! And dip, apparently.

In a reasonable amount, this has served 8-10 people for shorter dinner parties and potlucks.

The most popular sauce for this recipe is the buffalo wing sauce. Mixing in a small can of green chilis is also a good way to change it up a bit. For even more spice, try diced jalapeños if you can take the heat. ;)

Diced chicken or ground beef could make this a meaty dip if you want to add a little something, but I usually make it without meat. Love this as-is.

Serve this dip with these homemade tortilla chips and some homemade guacamole! Your appetizers will be taken care of, and your guests will be so happy.
