Super Easy Bean Dip

Thank you for your patience in waiting for my site to get up and running.

As a kid, and even now, I loved super bowl parties. The were a time I got to see my parents acting like “kids”. Hooting and hollering at the screen, jumping up when their team scored a touch down, rubbing victories in each others faces… it was awesome.

I also love Super Bowl parities because of all the yummy food.  My mom would ALWAYS make this dip for the party and it is seriously so dang good. It would be gone long before the game was over.  Who knew it was only 3 ingredients and so easy?!

Super Easy Bean Dip!... Only 3 ingredients! This is so simple to make and is a total crowd pleaser!

    I have been making this bean dip for YEARS. My kids always loved it so much that I had to double the recipe just for the 3 of us. The last time I made it (a couple years back) was for my boyfriend and I on an all movie weekend. Made it in the early afternoon and by dinner, neither of us were hungry and the bowl was empty :-)

    This makes me wish I liked beans. I bet it's fabulous for all of you bean lovers!

    WE make something quite similar, just substitute the beans for nobean turkey chili (Hormel)> OH YUM. Your photo is gorgeous.

    Yum! I'm new to the cream cheese bandwagon, and now I am at the stage where I believe it should go in everything, so this sounds SO yummy. Pinning!

    I do something similar as well, also with chili. I don't combine the ingredients either... just layer. And it works in the slow cooker too! :)

    My friend recently served a bean dip. I never tried one before. Now after seeing this, I think I will making some ASAP! Especially since there are only 3 ingredients! I just happen to have all three. Can't wait!
