What’s a great day in front of the TV without a great snack? Whether it’s movie night, game day or just an evening of watching TV with the kids (every Saturday they get to pick the shows), a snack is called for and in my opinion it’s hard to beat a good homemade bean dip.
Aside from being a lot healthier than sour cream based dips, bean dip tends to hold up better to serious snacking, especially when there are two pre-teen boys or a group of men involved. it’s more filling, far more savory and suited as a condiment for a slew of different applications, including burritos.
This is a simple recipe that tastes best if allowed to sit for a few hours before serving. The flavors never seem to come together unless it has a chance to rest. When ready to serve just sprinkle with some cheese, bake for a few minutes and enjoy! You’ll be glad you did.

What I would have done Differently had I thought of it at the time:
I would have added some cumin had I had any on hand. Also, I think olives would have been a nice addition. Queso Fresco instead of cheddar also might be a good touch. There are a lot of ways this can be tweaked and I intend to try all of them… I’ve been snacking on this for hours now.
