Foodie Friday - Bean Dip!

For Foodie Friday I am sharing a recipe that it a Family Favorite - Nacho Bean Dip.
Thank you Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!

I admit it doesn't sound that exciting and it doesn't photograph that well, but it is my two girl's favorite food of all times. I first had this in the early 80's when I friend brought it to a potluck. She shared the recipe, which she got out of Southern Living, with me. When we moved to the town we currently live in, I carried it to a party and was surprised that no one had ever had it before. One of the product used in the original recipe (a bean dip) was discontinued and I started substituting canned refried beans for it. If anything, it improved the recipe. I put the modified recipe in my church cookbook in the early 90's and it has become something I am locally "famous" for ever since.

It is requested by my daughters and their friends at all their gatherings. One friend calls it the "Life Changing Bean Dip." They have even tagged it on Facebook!!!!

OK, here are 2 pictures. I am warning you, that it isn't pretty.


One of my online friends photographed it and added a layer of salsa on top to make it more photogenic! Here is her picture:

The recipe is on Recipezaar. (I promise I am not a shill for them, I have just been a member for years and have my recipes there and have tried and photograped lots of recipes for events. It's fun!)
