Recipe by Melanie B.

Many years ago, my husband and I concocted this recipe (after many tries) because we liked this skillet dip thing at a local chain restaurant. It is great for an appetizer at a dinner party, at a tailgate party...anywhere that you can heat up a skillet - preferably cast iron - but any type will do...and you can tweak to make it as spicy or mild as you prefer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place beans, onion, garlic, sour cream, spices, bacon, bell pepper, and adobo sauce in a food processor (or blender). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Add bean mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes. Once bubbling, remove from heat. Add cheese, tomatoes, and cilantro in strips across the top of the bean mixture on the skillet.
  3. Serve with your favorite tortillas or chips.
