Festive Bean Spread

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This is a wonderful appetizer, a bean spread with a Mexican taste. It looks very festive with the red and green toppings, and it's easy to put together. Your guests will be asking for the recipe, so keep it handy ! The two cheeses can be substituted with one 3-cup package shredded taco cheese."

I used homemade refried beans, homemade salsa and homemade taco seasoning as well as reduced fat sour cream. This dip is ADDICTIVE. My family has darn near eaten the whole thing. SO delicious.

This recipe was ok, kinda bland. Next time I won't mix the salsa with the beans, it made the whole thing too watery.

Good when fresh, NOT good the next day.

This recipe was so yummy! We had it for the Super bowl party,everyone enjoyed it so much! They ask for the recipe too... Its a keeper!

I took this dip to a New Years gathering last night. It was by far the most attractive dip on the table and it disappeared faster that the rest -- faster even than the similar dips. This tells...

This was a very good and easy to make recipe! We all loved it!!! I added Olives and it was great!

YUM! what an awesome recipe! it was a hit! Thanks

Very nice. It reminds me of cookouts when I was a little kid. Now I'm all grown up, making grown up food. Fresh taste and full of flavor

I made this dip for Christmas and my whole fmaily really enjoyed it. I'll be making it again for the next family get together.
