This easy cheesy refried bean dip is a a crowd-pleasing appetizer that will disappear quickly!A few months ago I shared a recipe for homemade Mexican style refried beans. I stand by my claim that once you try them, you’ll never want to buy the canned kind again! Today I’m excited to share a recipe I created with that first batch of refried beans I made – it’s just taken me awhile to get it up. We made this dish to take to dinner at someone’s house, and I just kind of threw it together last minute (literally – I took it out one minute before we left, took some pictures, and rushed to the car. There had been a tornado warning, which shut us in our basement, so I was a little bit behind.) It was a big hit at dinner, and when I made it a few weeks later at my parent’s house, everyone really enjoyed it as well. I feel like the fall and winter have a lot of parties and get togethers going on, so this is a great appetizer to bring to parties. It’s absolutely delicious!
