Bean Dip Recipe from


There’s something about cooler weather, fall, and football that always has me craving this Bean Dip.

It’s a no-frills sort of dip that always seems to disappear in the blink of an eye. A while back, as we were getting ready for watching an afternoon game, I decided to change how I served my bean dip from one large platter to small, wide-mouthed individual jars that guests could serve themselves.

I served a large salad, grilled chicken, pulled pork, and a few other sides but the bean dip actually turned into one of the most requested dishes of the day!

The best part? It took all of 5 minutes to prepare and another 5 minutes or so to place in the jars.



This humble bean dip turned into so much more and went perfectly with all of the other items served that day. But honestly, I think bean dip and a chip are about all I need.



Here’s the recipe for my Bean Dip. I can’t wait to hear how you like it!

    1. Thanks, Sandy. I’ve made these numerous times for different numbers of people. The recipe makes 8 (1/2-pint) jars, so I’ve been making multiples of the recipe to serve larger crowds.
