New Year’s Day is fast becoming our preference over boozy eve.

We like the idea of greeting the new year with an outdoor adventure, and a celebration with friends and family.

We also just managed to snag our dear friend’s super scrumptious hot bean dip. Although the ingredients are similar to most, she combines beans, cream cheese and sour cream, and then spreads it thinly in a 9 by 13 pan. Gooey, melty bites of yum.

Thinner layers make all the difference. I have seen this called Texas Trash on Pinterest, but don’t let that dissuade you. This is a go-to hot bean dip that everybody loves.

2 cans of re-fried beans, one cup of sour cream, one package of cream cheese, some parsley and chives and 10 drops of Tabasco. (some recipes call for a packet of taco mix)
You spread that into a 9 by 13 pan and sprinkle liberally with your favourite chili powder. Cover with at least two cups of shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and then sprinkle liberally with chili powder. Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes and serve immediately with crackers sturdy enough to get through the cheese.


2 8-oz) block of cream cheese, softened
Old El Paso Taco seasoning packet or homemade
4oz cans of Old El Paso diced green chiles, divided
¼ cup Old El Paso green enchilada sauce
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Using a stand mixer, mix cream cheese, taco seasoning and diced green chilies (reserve 2 Tablespoons for top)
Place cream cheese mixture in a medium sized baking dish (about 8X8). I used a medium sized cast iron pan. Smooth until you have an even layer.
Next top with ¼ cup of green enchilada sauce. Place in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with shredded cheese, and green chiles. Place back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with your favorite tortillas
