At Thanksgiving we always have the traditional big turkey dinner with our secret family recipes and all the sides. My mom makes an amazing meal, and I’m in charge of the desserts. However, the men in my family (ahem…Nate and my dad) do not like turkey. Seriously?! I still don’t get it. So to please these guys on Christmas, we usually have a Tex Mex meal with enchiladas, tamales, tacos, and more. This year I’m going to bring my out-of-this-world Cheesy Hot Bean Dip for some delicious party food.
This has quickly become a family favorite. What I love is that you can spice it up or down by adding less or more Tabasco. Not all of us (um…me) can take the spice, lol!
Tabasco is seriously flying off the shelves at Walmart. I had to go to two different Walmarts to find it when we ran out last week. But, I was thrilled they had the giant bottle in stock.
This recipe is perfect to go with so many things. You can make finger foods like taquitos and flautas for dipping. Tamales are great, too. Or just a big bowl of chips.
An easy Tex Mex style bean dip full of deliciousness!
5 minPrep Time
15 minCook Time
20 minTotal Time
- 16 oz container sour cream
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 can of bean dip
- 1 package of taco seasoning
- 1-2 tbs dried chopped onion
- 1-2 tsp Tabasco
- 16 oz shredded cheese
- chopped green onion
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Mix sour cream, cream cheese, bean dip,Tabasco, dried onion, and taco seasoning until well blended.
- Pour into baking dish (I use 8 x 8 size).
- Cover with shredded cheese.
- Bake until cheese is bubbly - about 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle chopped green onion.
This is also a great dip to put on the table during a game night. One of our favorite games is Bezzerwezzer. If you love trivia, you might love that one. We love playing trivia games, so it’s always fun to stump each other.
After I mixed it up, I realized I forgot to throw in the dried onion, so I added at the end. But, go ahead and add it with all the other ingredients.
If you don’t have a mixer, this is easy to mix up by hand. But, I love to whip it all together in the stand mixer. Then, just pour it into the pan.
Cover it with a generous amount of cheese. This is one of those you don’t want to skimp on the cheese. It just makes it such a delicious dip.
Then, bake it for at least 15 minutes. You can go longer to get it browned, but I usually pull it out when it’s just starting to bubble.
I can’t wait to bring this to our Christmas get together. Nate and Molly thought it was delicious. In fact, this is what Molly had for lunch a couple days ago, lol. I think my dad is going to love it.
What do you usually eat at Christmas? Is it usually a traditional meal?
