This Easy Tex Mex Bean Dip is deliciously cheesy and full of flavor.  It can be made in the slow cooker or on the stove top – excellent either way!

Yummy and easy to make: Tex Mex Bean Dip!

I know Bean Dip is a simple thing, but really, this Tex-Mex version of this recipe is the bomb!  My family gobbled it up and the hubby even commented on it being excellent. (And I rarely get {unprompted} comments from him…)

I came across this recipe while flipping through an old cookbook.  (How many others have a phone full of snapshots of random recipes?)  The original recipe called for the bean dip to be cooked in a crock pot, but I didn’t want the hassle of cleaning my big crock pot for the dip, so I just used my large deep skillet for everything.


If you have a small crock pot, it would be perfect for this and would keep the dip warm during parties.  (And of course I made a few changes that only improved on the dip…)

We ate on this dip for a couple of days.  I served it as a dip, on tostadas with lettuce tomatoes and extra cheese and baked in little scoop-able chip cups.  Kids loved it!

Tex-Mex Bean Dip


  • 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.
  5. Top with optional garnishes and serve warm.
(If you make this in the crock pot – Saute the veggies as in step one, then add everything to the crock pot and cook on low for 2 hours.)
Easy Tex-Mex Bean Dip Recipe, in the slow cooker or on the stove top. Excellent either way!
