When I moved out on my own, my mother gave me a small book with some of her favorite recipes handwritten in the front. This was one of the recipes she included that my family has now come to love.

Yum! Hubby and I ate this for dinner, as I have been craving it for weeks. I used a little less cheese and added some diced tomato. I like what you did with the avocado. Next time I might add some cilantro (fresh coriander) to the avocado mixture. Will be making it again for a Christmas BBQ very soon!

Great dip! The only change I would make next time would be to reduce the beans by half, and add some canned chilies to give them more zip. Thanks for the recipe!

This dip was fantastic! I made it and brought it up to the cottage, and everyone loved it. The only thing I would change is to add some more spice somehow...perhaps by buying a can of refried beans that are already spicy, or by adding something to the beans to make them spicier. I will definatly be making this again!
