Just like the bean dip you buy in the store but a lot less expensive. The heat can be easily controlled.

My son is addicted to the Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos recipe on this site so I always have tortilla chips on hand. I was looking for something else to go with the chips -- I love nachos but unlike Mr. Pickypants I get tired of them -- and found this recipe. I followed the recipe almost exactly -- I have no tolerance for heat in my food so I omitted the jalapenos (and indeed that mere 1/8 t. of cayenne was at my threshold!). This dip is light and flavorful nothing like the heavy pasty stuff that comes in a can; and it took just a few minutes to make! Thanks PresidentJim; you have my vote! 3/10/2014: Just a couple of notes: If you drain the beans well you will get a thicker dip. And although you will think it needs salt don't do it! You'll get plenty of salt from the chips. Read More

It was good but way too salty for me. I would recommend cutting the salt in half at the least maybe even to 1/4 tsp and taste it before adding more. If you want heat add half a jalapeño seeded and diced. Read More

This dip is wonderful! My hubby loved it! I did add 2 roasted green chilies, 1/8 tsp. of garlic salt and a pinch of cumin. No more buying the little can of bean dip! Read More

This was a very simple recipe I like that part. The suggested amount of salt was WAY TOO MUCH in my opinion. I'd cut it in half if not more. I didn't have any jalepenos or cayenne pepper so I added chipolte pepper powder. I put some cheese on top and microwaved it for about 30-45 seconds and I've got a delicious cheap easy dip! Read More

This was super! I used a can of Rosarita Refried Beans because I didn't have whole ones. I omitted the jalapenos and the cayenne pepper and substituted 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and about 2 tsp. of the sauce. I also omitted the salt completely. I added about an 1/8 tsp. of cumin also. We ate it with fresh veggies instead of chips; I'm trying to break my chip addiction. We eat hummus with fresh veggies so I figured "Why not?" This is one of those wonderful recipes that you can spice up any way you want! Thank you Mr. President! Read More

Very good! I didn't have onion powder so I used dried onions and since I made this for my littles I completely nixed the hot peppers. There's still a mild kick with the paprika and cayenne so it was perfect! I'm very pleased with this recipe and will for sure be making it again! Thanks Read More

So easy to make and I really liked it. Blended it long enough to give it a nice light whipped consistency. My beans were low sodium so I did need the salt. Used just 2 of the jalapeno rings but all of the vinegar (I used rice vinegar which I like for it's mild flavor). Added cumin adjusted all spices to taste. Thank you. Read More

Excellent! So much cheaper to make than the canned stuff you can buy in the store and so much better. Definitely worth your time to make this! Read More
