Well, nothing is wrong with regular refried beans as a side; changing them up with cheesy refried beans is amazing! When I order Mexican food, I always dip my tortilla chips into the beans on the side. This takes those beans a step further. This recipe can double as a side dish or an appetizer recipe!
Cheesy Refried Beans Ingredients
Cream Cheese– This will need to be softened before combining the ingredients.
how to make bean dip from canned refried beans
You will want to pull out the cream cheese to soften it beforehand.
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
Combine the can of refried beans, cream cheese, and sour cream in a medium mixing bowl. I used a spatial to do this; the cream cheese will take some work to mix into everything.
Once the refried bean mixture is well, add in the salsa and taco seasoning and mix well.
Spray a baking dish with a nonstick spray; I used a Pyrex 2.2 Quart pan.
This pan works great for serving and storage, the lid makes an airtight container for storing.
Spread the bean mixture into the pan and smooth it with a spatula.
Top with the bean mixture with the cheese blend.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
