Why Make This Recipe
I’m a big fan of dips like this one because they:
- Pack a punch of flavor: This is not your mama’s boring bean dip. It has spicy chilis melty cheese, and gooey avocado.

I have a feeling that you’re going to agree…this just might become the go-to dip recipe that won’t ever let you down.
- Cream Cheese: To quickly soften cream cheese submerge it in its foil packing in warm (not hot) water for 3-5 minutes. You can also microwave it for 20-30 second increments as well.
- Canned Beans: Be sure to rinse and drain all canned beans using a strainer. This will help remove excess salt and improve the flavor as well.
- Taco Seasoning: I used store-bought taco seasoning in this recipe. Feel free to substitute your favorite homemade variety, I’m partial to this one.
