Make a tasty Spicy Broiled Bean Dip!
One food that is well loved around our home is bean dip. My husband though would be fine eating it out of a can but, I like to do more than just opening a can and digging in. This time I thought I would add the peppers to his bean dip to give it an extra kick of flavor!
On top of adding the peppers, I am also on a broiling kick lately. I absolutely love the way broiling a meal that has cheese on top makes it toasty and crispy.
In playing up my love of broiling, I decided to place a layer of cheese on top of the dip then broil it for just about 2-3 minutes to give it a nice toasted cheese topping.
This dip hit the spot and is perfect as a snack or as a side dish to take to parties this season. Can you imagine taking this to a football party? You will be loved, trust me…or possibly have people asking you for water. Keep in mind this is fire level of hot, so if it is too spicy for you simply use half a can of the peppers instead of the whole can.
For this dish I used the La Morena Jalapeno Peppers and the Chipotle Peppers, it certainly had that kick of spice too it so have water nearby. You can use any pepper brands though. I also garnished it with a little bit of lime and cilantro just to add a bit more flavor as well. The bean mixture consisted of refried beans and cream cheese. Typically, I always use sour cream in my bean dip but since my husband is not the biggest fan of sour cream, I opted for cream cheese instead.
If you have game day plans this week or you simply want to enjoy a little snack, I highly suggest this dip.
Time for snacking!
