Don’t be a skeptic. I know this looks like a bowl of beans and corn. And peppers. And you’re wondering, “seriously? that tastes good??”

It does. Okay? IT DOES. It tastes amazing.

My best friend’s son (who is ELEVEN) requests this bean dip at every one of his birthday parties and special events. The first time I had it at their house, I was a little afraid. I like beans. In soup. On a burrito.

But not necessarily as a dip. As the primary ingredient.

Haters….let me just say this is delicious. And you won’t be able to stop at just one scoop (yes scoop…those Tostitos Scoops were made specifically for THIS recipe).

One of the best parts of this recipe is it can be made in advance. And, secondly, it feeds a crowd! I’ve kept this in my fridge for up to a week, nibbling daily (it’s dangerous!). I think it would be great on a salad. Or over fish. Still have leftovers at the end of the week? Make a taco soup and toss this in (after draining the liquid).
