My son is addicted to the Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos recipe on this site, so I always have tortilla chips on hand. I was looking for something else to go with the chips -- I love nachos, but unlike Mr. Pickypants, I get tired of them -- and found this recipe. I followed the recipe almost exactly -- I have no tolerance for heat in my food, so I omitted the jalapenos (and indeed, that mere 1/8 t. of cayenne was at my threshold!). This dip is light and flavorful, nothing like the heavy, pasty stuff that comes in a can; and it took just a few minutes to make! Thanks, PresidentJim; you have my vote! 3/10/2014: Just a couple of notes: If you drain the beans well, you will get a thicker dip. And although you will think it needs salt, don't do it! You'll get plenty of salt from the chips.



This dip is wonderful! My hubby loved it! I did add 2 roasted green chilies, 1/8 tsp. of garlic salt and a pinch of cumin. No more buying the little can of bean dip!

This was a very simple recipe, I like that part. The suggested amount of salt was WAY TOO MUCH, in my opinion. I'd cut it in half, if not more. I didn't have any jalepenos or cayenne pepper, so I added chipolte pepper powder. I put some cheese on top and microwaved it for about 30-45 seconds and I've got a delicious, cheap, easy dip!
