Texas Trash Warm Bean Dip

So here is the recipe for Texas Trash Bean Dip that I posted before, and although really good, I think it could be better.  This has 335 calories for 1/12 of the 13x9 dish, and is tasty, but Aaron and I both thought it needed more spice.  I think some salsa added, and less cream cheese in the recipe would really make this better.  Anyway, the recipe is

Texas Trash Warm Bean Dip

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 cans (16 ounces, each) refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl. Mix in refried beans until combined. Stir in taco seasoning.

Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the top with both cheeses.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese in melted and slightly browned. Serve with tortilla chips.
Super easy, but again, it needed more flavor.  Aaron and Owen gave it a 7, I gave it an 8, and Noah gave it a 9.  I will make it again with the changes I suggested, we'll see how we like it better.


  1. It looks good to me, but I think just plain beans and cheese would be better.

  2. WE both liked this, but I added a can of green chilies to it. And btw, regular beans, minus the juice, do not work as well as refried beans would. We still liked it, just too runny.

  3. I liked these OK. But really it just seemed like Creamy re-fried beans. I wold have been happy with just beans.
    We ended up using these as if they were regular beans on our tacos days later.
