If you haven’t noticed a theme in my recipes, you soon will–they are incredibly easy. The truth is I’m domestically challenged, especially when it comes to cooking, but I try because I know that serving my family is a gift I can bring to the table.
I received this recipe from a neighbor several years ago, and since then it has become a family favorite. There is rarely a party we attend where one of my sisters hasn’t brought the Tex Mex Dip. But if you’re clever like I am, you offer to bring the Tex Mex first so that you beat the others to the punch.
My daughter’s been making this since she was about nine years old, because it’s so easy. And since there are few ingredients we often have them on hand.
Here they are:
2 cans of refried beans (or one large can)
500 ml of sour cream (2 cups)
Chopped green onions
3/4 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese (optional)
1 Large bag of Tortilla chips
Layer the ingredients in a large casserole dish. Start with beans on the bottom. Spread them evenly. Top with sour cream and gently spread it with the back of a large spoon.
Top with green onions, chopped tomatoes and cheese. (We don’t usually add the cheese).
Serve with Tortilla chips.
Refried Beans and Cheese
This recipe is even easier–yes, that’s possible!
You need three ingredients:
Note: This recipe serves 1, so repeat for each person.
1/2 can of refried beans
1/4 cup of shredded mild cheddar
Spread 1/2 can of refried beans on an oven safe plate. Broil for 10 minutes in the oven uncovered. You will see that the top of the beans get slightly toasted–perfect! I spread them quite thin because I love that they get a bit crispy.
Remove the plate from the oven, but be careful because it will be extremely hot.
Sprinkle with a layer of cheese. Return to the oven until the cheese is melted (about two minutes).
Remove from the oven and serve with sour cream on the side.
Yum! Yum! Yum!
