Julie's Bean Dip or Refried Beans

Easy and delicious! The cream cheese and green onions really make this dish special. This was originally a bean dip recipe, but we like it so much we serve it as refried beans too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients together and heat in the microwave until everything is melted and mixed well.
  2. If serving as a dip, place in crockpot on warm. Tastes even better if you make it up ahead of time, refrigerate 'til needed then reheat.
  3. Note: When doubling the recipe, it's okay to use a 30 ounce can - you don't have to be exact with the measurements.

DH really liked this one. I used half of Recipe #249207 for the beans. Didn't have enchilada sauce so used salsa.

Excellent! Easy to prepare and a wonderful flavor. I agree with the title - great as a side or as a dip. Thanks for sharing!
