Spicy Bean Dip. This slightly spicy bean dip is creamy, cheesy, and perfect for dipping! It only takes 5 minutes to put this together then toss it in the oven to let it heat and get metly. Great for adding to any of your favorite Mexican dishes or as a crowd pleasing snack!

How To Make Spicy Bean Dip:

One of my favorite things about this easy bean dip is that it comes together fast and with less than 10 ingredients.

Typically bean dip is made with:

  • Refried beans
  • Cream cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Shredded cheese

To make this a little spicier we’re going to add some diced green chiles. If you want even more heat some diced up jalapeno is good too! Use the pickled diced jalapenos in the cans next to the diced green chiles in the market. Or if you have some jarred sliced jalapenos you can give those a quick dice.

What takes this dip to the next level is using homemade refried beans and a homemade taco seasoning.

But to keep things quick and easy you can use canned refried beans.

Bean Dip in the Slow Cooker

With this being possibly the best potluck or tailgating snack food, of course you may want to make this recipe in the slow cooker (affiliate)!

To do that you will still prep all of the ingredients and mix them together, then add to the slow cooker. Cover and cook for 2 hours on high. This lets you easily transport the dip or to keep it warm during a party.

Just remember to always add the toppings right before serving. So if using a slow cooker, have the toppings you want in a separate storage container and sprinkle them on top when you set up. Keep the slow cooker on warm until heat isn’t needed any longer.
