This Cheesy Bean Dip combines refried beans with zesty Tex-Mex flare. It is always a hit at gatherings. Its creamy texture, cheesy goodness, and perfect blend of spices make it irresistible.


  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 4 oz can of diced green chiles (though I used the last of my roasted hatch chiles)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 14 oz cans of re-fried beans
  • 4 tbs of chili sauce or taco sauce (as mild or as hot as you like it)
  • 8 tbs chicken stock
  • 1 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, graded plus a bit more for garnish
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbs cilantro paste (optional)
  • Optional toppings:
  • Chopped tomatoes, Avocados, Green onions, fresh chopped cilantro


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet.  Add onion, garlic and chilies and saute over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add re-fried beans, chili/taco sauce, stock,cumin, cilantro paste and cheese to the skillet.
  3. Stir until everything is combined and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
