On Saturday we had some fellow soccer-loving friends over to watch World Cup, and my friend Heather brought a fantastic bean dip that was -- admittedly -- way more awesome (and quickly devoured) than the basic layered dip I made. Heather kindly sent me the recipe, which originated from her friend Betsy. I'm totally making this dip next weekend for another party I'm hosting. Yummy.
Betsy's Bean Dip
1. Mix the first nine ingredients (red pepper through chili powder) in a large, microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
2. Add Monterey Jack cheese and cilantro. Microwave 3 more minutes and mix. Serve with tortilla chips.
Note: Can be made ahead and reheated. You also can double the recipe and freezes a batch for later.
