“Better than Frito Lay” Spicy Bean Dip

Friends are so special!

bean dip

I had a sweet lady give me several bags of pinto beans.  I don’t care much about sitting down and eating a bowl of pinto beans;  I prefer Great Northern white beans flavored with a ham bone if I’m going to do that.

so…my daughter loves bean dip!   The kind you buy in the little can by the chips.

My dream to use these pinto beans was to make bean dip.  And you know what?  It is delicious!  I served this with taco salads at our Sunday family dinner. Hope you enjoy!
