For years, this dip was a staple at any party we were having.
Crazy that I don’t think I’ve shared it before and like, wow, really??
So here we go. Afterall, it’s that time of year where we start pulling out favorites for all those holiday get togethers!
The recipe is simple and really, you can modify it so many ways. I’ve added shredded lettuce as a layer to be a tad healthier. We’ve topped with avocado when they were dirt cheap.
Today, I’m just going to show you the original way we make it 95% of the time … simple and definitely a crowd pleaser!
1 can of refried beans. I discovered these refried black beans at Trader Joe’s!
1 jar of salsa (shelf stable)
1 container sour cream
8 oz bag of shredded cheddar cheese
sliced green onions
First up … my number one tip? Drain that salsa. You may need to tap into a 2nd jar if its really liquidy.
Spread the beans into a shallow dish.
Dump the drained salsa on top of the beans and spread out.
Add dallops of sour cream to the salsa and carefully spread. This is tricky to keep it “pretty” but worth it. Some spots will have more sour cream than others but that’s ok as it’s like a bonus when you are the one who gets it!
Sprinkle the cheddar cheese all over the top. Again, you might need to tap into a 2nd bag depending on how much cheese you are using!
Garnish with the green onions.
Put a shower cap over the dish and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Serve up with a side of tortilla chips and call it a party!
