How do you make bean dip?
Bean dip is typically made by combining refried beans, cheese and seasoning, then baking it until gooey and melted.
This loaded bean dip has a little bit of everything – a creamy and flavorful refried bean base, plenty of cheese, tomatoes, green onions and olives. You can really go crazy with the toppings here, other great choices include diced avocado, sour cream, sliced jalapenos or fresh cilantro. This dip can be assembled up to a day in advance and baked just before you’re ready to eat, making it perfect for entertaining!
