This is an amazing bean dip, that I have made for my Craft Night get-together. There is never any left to take home.

This was a very easy and quick dish to prepare...I zapped mine in the microwave that way I didn't have to heat up the oven...the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that the lettuce wilted and became soggy...I think the beans dish needs to cool off before adding the lettuce in step 6...otherwise it was very tasty...I cut the recipe in half and it worked great...served with both tortilla chips and fritos...thanks for posting the recipe...=)
