Festive Bean Spread

Festive Bean Spread

Lisa Garchow

This is a wonderful appetizer, a bean spread with a Mexican taste. It looks very festive with the red and green toppings, and it's easy to put together. Your guests will be asking for the recipe, so keep it handy ! The two cheeses can be substituted with one 3-cup package shredded taco cheese.

I used homemade refried beans, homemade salsa and homemade taco seasoning as well as reduced fat sour cream. This dip is ADDICTIVE. My family has darn near eaten the whole thing. SO delicious.

This recipe was ok, kinda bland. Next time I won't mix the salsa with the beans, it made the whole thing too watery.

Good when fresh, NOT good the next day.
