Baked Chili Cheese Bean Dip

I had been wanting to whip up something new to share with you for the Super Bowl, and the other day I got my chance.  You see, it’s been SUPER gloomy and cold here, and I just can’t get in the mood to take pictures when it’s like that.  The other day, I was working away in my office, and I glanced out the window to see blue skies and sunshine.  Albeit, 11 degrees, but sunshine!! I thought “what am I doing in here?  Time to cook up some new stuff!!” 

 

I made three new recipes that day, but hadn’t really planned to make any — so it was all about creating something with what I had on hand.  One thing I always have in my pantry? Canned refried beans.  You all know, there is no shortage of cheese around here either.  Digging into the fridge, I saw the leftover chili from a couple of nights before, and I knew I could make something delicious.

I used my mixer to cream together the refried beans and cream cheese with half of the cheese and the hot sauce.  I spread it into a pie plate. I love this scalloped edge pie plate

I had made chili that week, and had leftovers, so I used my own chili.  But I measured it so that if you don’t have your own, you can substitute a can of chili from the store.  Of course, mine if full of beans and meat.  I used both hamburger and steak in this batch, but you can use meatless for a vegetarian bean dip.    I have lots of different chili recipes on my blog.  Typically when I make chili, it sort of just happens.  I start throwing stuff in the pot and tasting it until I like it.  I did, at one point, measure ingredients and made a 3 Bean Chili that I put on my blog.

Bake it for a bit and then add the remaining shredded cheddar cheese to the top and bake until it’s nice and melty.

Because if it’s not nice and melty, there’s no cheese pull — you gotta have cheese pull, am I right?
