Baked Mexican Bean Dip

I mentioned on Monday that we I like to have "living room tailgates" on game day.  This involves the two of us watching our Wildcats or NFL teams, snacking and maybe enjoying an adult beverage.  If it's a big game, we may even have others over to tailgate in our living room too. {Ok, so we're eating, drinking and watching the game at home.  But when you say "tailgating" it just sounds like more fun, right?!}  I made one of our favorites on Sunday--Baked Mexican Bean and Taco Dips.

Baked Mexican Bean Dip

1 can refried beans
1 block of Cream Cheese
1/2 packet of Taco Seasoning
1 cup shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
serve with:
Tortilla Chips & Cold Taco Dip {below}

Preheat oven to 350.  In a microwave safe bowl, add refried beans and cream cheese.  Microwave in 30-40 second intervals, stirring until cream cheese has melted & combined with refried beans.  Stir in 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese.  Once combined, spread into a baking dish and top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until cheese has melted.


I almost always serve this along with scoops and cold "Taco Dip" which is: 1ish cups of Sour Cream & the other half packet of Taco Seasoning.  Stir well & refrigerate while Bean Dip is baking.  They go SO well together!

What's your favorite game day/tailgate recipe?!


  1. Isn't it funny how one word can totally change the vibe of something?? Tailgating sounds way cooler than watching the game at home! It's all how you spin it lol And that dip looks amazing!! My mom makes a similar dip and it is always a hit!

  2. Love a good game day dip recipe! Thanks!
