This bean dip recipe is not my own. I got it years ago out of a Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. But, it is such a unique and different tasting appetizer, that I thought everyone should have the recipe. I can’t take this dish anywhere without getting compliments galore. No one every realizes that it is made with pork and beans.
Whenever my husband and I used to go to any kind of outing, I would always be asked to bring this dip.
When you think of bean dip, you usually think of a pinto bean dip with a Mexican flare. But this dip is made with pork and beans and has more of a southwestern flavor. It is very tangy and kind of grabs your taste buds. You’ll see.
There have been a couple of times when I have made this dip and served it as a light dinner with corn chips. I have included as a side, a green salad with avocado, black olives, mushrooms, chopped green onions and chopped hard boiled eggs topped with a Caesar dressing.
This dip is best served warm. When serving it, I usually keep it in a oven proof bowl and keep a lit candle underneath it to keep it warm. You can also use a small fondue pot if you have one.
