This is my jazzzzzzed up version of bean dip. Yeah baby.
RECIPE: Ultimate Spicy Two Bean Dip
2 – 16 oz cans of Refried beans
1 – 16 oz can of Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 lb. – Zesty Hot Pork Sausage (I used Bob Evans brand) – cooked, drained, and crumbled
1 cup – Medium Salsa
1/2 cup – Light Sour Cream
1/2 packet – Taco Seasoning
1 – Jalapeno, diced finely
1/8 teaspoon – Garlic Powder
5-6 – dashes of Tabasco
1/4 cup – Green Onions, chopped
1 cup – Cheddar Cheese
1 cup – Monterey Jack Cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together except for 1/4 cup of the cheeses (reserve) and place in baking dish.
2. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes until cheese is melted and dip is hot and bubbly.
3. Optional: top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, green onions, and/or black olives if desired. Serve with Tortilla chips or Frito Scoops.
Note: this makes a lot of bean dip so you can half the recipe if needed. You can also add more sausage if desired.
