"This was good dip that was easy to throw together. I used fresh crushed garlic instead of the powder, and eyeballed the rest of the ingredients. I probably used way more than a 1/4 teaspoon of seasoning, and it did not come out tasting overly seasoned. I also added chopped jalapenos, green onion and cilantro. With the pintos, this tastes like a lighter version of refried beans. The flavor improves a lot when served warm/hot, I thought."
"This made a nice dip that was mild and tasty. I enjoyed all the spices and the cilantro was a nice touch. I used pinto beans from the slow cooker. Thanks!"
"Very tasty bean dip made to go with our grilled skirt steak. The only changes I made were the pinto beans and I added quite a bit more of the seasoning. Served this dip alongside some guacamole and tortilla chips."
"I used Recipe #480397 for the salsa added twice the amount of seasoning mix and opted for the pinto beans. A nice healthy snack! Gracias made for ZWT#8"
"DH's new favorite!! He is loving this dip however I did add much more of the seasoning blend after we tasted the final product the first time. I have also substitued red onion for the green onion when I was out and it worked just as well. Thanks again for a keeper!!"
"I love the texture of this bean dip - it is very, very creamy. I used my blender to process this smooth, and am glad that I did. I used organic pinto beans, omitted the cilantro (we don't like it very well) and doubled the spice mixture. I think next time I would add more of the spice mixture. I used Pace Organics Medium Salsa. Made for Photo Tag."
"Muy bueno! I made a double batch of the Zippy Zonya Mexi Mix, and I'm really looking forward to trying it in tacos, burritos, etc. I love that it doesn't have any salt or preservatives or other such nonsense. I added some onion powder. For the dip I used a can of fat-free refried pinto beans. I didn't puree it in the food processor; I just stirred it all together with a fork and let it be kind of chunky. I doubled the green onions and the Mexi Seasoning. Next time I might use even more of the seasoning! It has a great flavor. My husband and I just love bean dip, and will definitely make this healthier, more flavorful alternative to the name-brand stuff on a regular basis."
