This dip is awesome served fresh warm or at room temp. It's also good the next day refrigerated. I think the recipe may have come from Southern Living or Cooking Light. It's not pretty to look at, but one taste and they will come back for more.

I made this last night and it was wonderful! I started with dry beans (cause that's all I had) so that took longer to get them cooked, but added to the rich flavor. The only changes I made is that I used salsa instead of picante and tomatos because I didn't have any. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet and at the end I put the cheese on top instead of mixing it in and baked it in the oven until the cheese was melted. I dressed the top with some Jalopeno slices for looks. It was very pretty and tasted great. I might leave out the lime next time just cause my DH didn't care for the tang. Thanks for the great recipe!
Yum - my husband always asks for this. From Cooking Light 5 Star recipes.
KellyC- I believe this did come from Cooking Light- it was one of their 10 year best recipes- I have saved my old copy from the original printing somewhere as this is such a great recipe. 5 stars, and I don't need to dig out my old copy anymore!! Thanks!
