This recipe was a little spicy, so I added another can of beans. I also added a splash of milk to make it creamier. This is a quick and easy recipe.

We thought this was really tasty. I sauteed in a cast iron skillet in about 2 teaspoons olive oil. I didn't have taco seasoning, so my daughter suggested cumin, then we added chili powder, onion powder & garlic powder. We used 1/4 cup salsa instead of the tomato and we added about a tablespoonful of diced jalapeno plus juice. Thanks for a good idea!

I made almost exactly as written. Instead of using fresh tomatoes I actually added a can of Ro-tel (diced tomatoes with green chilis) right into the dip. I would make this over and over. Very good as leftovers for a spiced up bean dip or mexican pizza.

This is even better with Chihuahua cheese or queso cheese (as it's also called) instead of cheddar. I half the taco seasoning and use a teaspoon of cumin. Sooo good!

This dip is just okay. I added some sour cream to make it more creamy.

Good, but I cut back taco seasoning to 1/2 package and also added salsa because I didn't have tomato on hand. Very good. Thanks for recipe.

Very good! Didn't have any fresh tomatoes on hand so I just used a can of plain diced. Turned out pretty good. Will be using this one again. So quick and yummy
