Zesty Bean Dip

Hola Amigos! Did you know that Cinco de Mayo is this Saturday? How about an easy dip to go with the festivities, Zesty Bean Dip from Rotel. Oh how I love me some Rotel! ...bacon too of course:@)
Cream cheese and refried beans mellow the Rotel very nicely.
 It's great hot and equally good at room temp, perfect party food!
While this might not be the most colorful of recipes, guys will think it's a work of art:@)

Zesty Bean Dip
5 slices bacon, fully cooked
(1) 16 oz can refried beans
*(1) 10 oz can Rotel, drained well
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 C cheddar, shredded
  1. Cook bacon till crisp, remove from pan to paper towel, cool and crumble. Set aside.
  2. Add beans, drained Rotel and cream cheese to skillet. Heat and stir until cream cheese melts.
  3. Pour bean mixture into 9" pie plate, top with shredded cheese and bacon.
  4. Serve warm with tortilla chips and sliced veggies.
Notes:
  • *It calls for Hot Diced Tomato with Habenaro Rotel... Not in my world folks. I used regular, if you like it extra hot-enjoy!
  • They don't specify if we should drain the bacon fat before adding the beans... I chose to pour most of it out and left about two teaspoons.
  • This is another recipe that I think the leftovers (if there are any) would be great on a bagel.
Have a happy day!

  1. I am sticking this one in my recipe folder right this minute. We love a good bean dip and I used some Rotel just last night with black beans, onions, and cheese to add to our Mexican dinner. I can only DREAM what cream cheese and bacon will do to this, oh my my my. I will be serving this one up in the next day or so, as soon as I can get to the grocery to pick up some more Rotel. Everything else is in my refrigerator or pantry as we speak.

  24. Hi Lynn, this looks delicious!! We love refries and cream cheese and the bacon really puts it over the top. In reply to your blogger question, on my comment page for each post I see two little words "reply" and "delete" under each person's comment. Then, if I click on reply, a little box opens and my response would be indented underneath that comment. In settings I have the comments set as "embedded." Except for not being able to comment or get comments or find my blog one day, I actually like the new blogger interface. It seems cleaner--once you learn what all the little symbols mean. Linda

  25. Yummmm! I must admit though that I thought your comment under the photo read, "guys will think it's worth a fart", (I assumed you said that because of the beans), and then I reread it correctly...but I did have a good laugh!
    Thanks for your kind comment on my post about my old watering can.
