Refried Bean Dip in Your Crock Pot

I found a great recipe to share with you this week.  My recipe file box  is a disaster area right now, but I still  spotted this prize recipe down in that mess.  This one is noted to be a diabetic recipe (I believe it was Aunt Sis'),  but it's just a yummy  dip for anyone who enjoys Mexican food.  The basic recipe is pretty mild in flavor, but if you like it hot (like I do) you can throw in some extra peppers,  crushed red pepper flakes or hot sauce to jazz up the flavor!  We like our dips and salsa with the large white corn "restaurant style" chips or Scoopers.  Here's that recipe I promised:

Refried Bean Dip

20 oz. can fat-free refried beans
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 C chopped green onions
2-4 TBSP taco sauce

Combine;  cover and cook on LOW in the crock pot for 2-2 1/2 hours, or cook on HIGH for 30 minutes and then on LOW for 30 minutes.  Serve with tortilla chips.

  1. Sounds like an easy way to do it.
    I found this through Turning the Clock Back's What's Cooking Wednesday. I have linked in an attempt at meatballs. Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks for the comment. Now that you've visited, hope you'll become a follower. I made meatballs this past week; mine call for fresh garlic, egg, sirloin and bread crumbs. I'll have to check out your recipe on your link!

  2. Ummm...this would be perfect for my fried zucchini and corn on the cob tonight. I have scoopers in the cupboard. Meant to be!

  3. Hi Marcia,
    We just love a great Bean Dip and never thought of putting it in the Crock Pot to keep it warm, this is a great recipe and a great idea. Hope you are having a great summer week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
