Creamy Bean Dip With Tomato-Avocado Topping

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Starrynews

This was inspired in part by a bean dip recipe from Rosarita's. I decided to try a cross between the bean dip and a layer dip by using the fresh salsa-based topping. It went over quite well here :) Adjust to your preferred spiciness level by changing the heat of the salsa you use! The use of pepperjack cheese is also a delicious way to kick up the heat.

This is good. I used recipe #456777, a cream cheese from Denmark, as that is what I had on hand, medium salsa, older cheddar, again what I had on hand, a small vidalia onion, I left out the fresh cilantro in the topping as there was already some in recipe #456777. I didn't use a microwave but the beans where just made so they were hot and I finished the heating up on the stove. Served with ruffled potato chips and rice crackers to be corn free. Made for ZWT7 South & Central America, for my team Food.Commandos
