Adapted this from Kraft Food & Family magazine. So simple and quick, but completely delicious! You can make it as hot as you want by changing up what kind of salsa you use. I also like to add a little lime juice, unless I am using the lime salsa. If you can't find the 4 cheese blend, you can use a mixture of cheddar and monterey jack (or pepperjack, for an extra little kick!) Serve with tortilla chips!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread cream cheese in the bottom of a shallow baking dish. (I use a circular pie pan).
  3. Top with black beans.
  4. Add salsa.
  5. Top with cheese.
  6. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and dip is bubbling.

I really liked the use of cream cheese in this dip, & the layering is so simple! Used a mild salsa, too, then had to put out tortilla chips (which my other half prefers) AND those large corn scoops (which I like)! Either way, very, very nice! Thanks for posting the recipe!

WOW, what a delicious dip recipe!!!!
Mmmm, it is spicy, tomatoey, creamy and cheesey all at the same time with the beans adding in such a nice flavour and texture.
I really liked the ease of preparing this, even when making your own salsa first like I did. It baked up so nicely in the oven and was so good with my veggie dippers. YUM!
I will certainly make this again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing another wonderful recipe with us, Starry!

Really simple and surprisingly good. We made it with our own homemade salsa and scooped it with chips. Made as a prize for Top Favorites of 2009 cookbook game.
