Our daughter Paige called today to wish us happy National Bean Dip Day. I had almost forgotten. To the rest of America, today is Super Bowl Sunday, but in my household, it is an excuse to eat bean dip. Some of us watch the game, some of us (me) watch for the commercials and half-time show, and some of us do both while eating bean dip.
WARNING: The following recipe is addictive. Be sure you make it when you have other people around to prevent consuming the whole thing yourself and then regretting it the next day. There hasn’t been one person who has had it and not asked me for the recipe.
Aunt Julie’s Bean Dip
1 can Fritos Brand Bean Dip
1 package taco seasoning (We use the “HOT” variety for more zip.)
1 8-ounce package cream cheese – softened
1 cup sour cream
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
¼ cup sliced green onion
Mix the first 4 ingredients. Place in an ovenproof dish. Top with grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes (or so). Remove from oven, top with green onions, and serve with corn chips or tortilla chips.
SECOND WARNING: In addition to being addictive, be careful . . . it will burn the roof of your mouth when straight out of the oven. Ask Paige. It has happened to her more than once.
