Warm Bean Dip

Warm Bean Dip

5 from 26 reviews

This super creamy flavorful refried bean dip is a party favorite.  It comes together in less than fifteen minutes prep time and reheats perfectly at a reduced power level in the microwave.


  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans of refried beans
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 taco Seasoning packet (either mild or hot)
  • 1 can (7 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 1/81/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 jalapeno thinly sliced


  1. Melt the cream cheese in a large skillet over very low heat.  Stir in the refried beans, sour cream, taco seasonings, green chiles, ground cayenne pepper, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack Cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese; cook until smooth and slightly melted.   Spoon into a 9×13 casserole dish and top with the remaining cheese.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve with tortilla chips.


  • Shred your own block cheese.  It is so much tastier and does not contain cellulose.
  • You can use traditional refried beans or fat free refried beans.  They both work out well and are delicious.
  • We prefer the full fat cream cheese and full fat sour cream in this dip. But by all means if you are on a low fat diet you can certainly use the others and they will blend well and taste good.
  • Use good sturdy chips for this recipe as it is real hearty dip with lots of gusto.
  • This Warm Bean Dip recipe makes a lot of dip so if it is just you and the family for movie night than you may want to cut this recipe in half.
