"This is a seriously cheesy and beefy bean dip! Grab a bag of your favorite tortilla chips and start dipping. Every time I make this recipe everyone waits to see who will take home the leftovers. It is even better the second day."

Outstanding! I had this at a friends football party (she took it off of this site) and I've made it twice since. The only thing that I've altered is that instead of using ground beef, I use chorizo sausage (Mexican sausage found in your stores' meat counter), it is just SO much more flavorful that ground beef, and perfect for a "Mexican" style dip! It is SO very good! My husband loves it! We ate the whole thing in one sitting... I highly recommend it!

I am re-reviewing this recipe, because I made it again this weekend and WOW!!! I already gave it 5 stars, but I did it wrong! Make sure to add the jalapenos with the juice, it totally cuts the heat and gives it an amazing!! flavor. This is the BEST dip ever. also, tray adding a half a pound of hot sausage to this dip...makes the flavor even better!! thanks for an awesome (ie the BEST) warm chip dip I've ever had!!!!!

My 2 year old (Jada) loved this so much she cleaned her bowl and asked for more. My son wouldn't eat it because of the color, but he's my very picky child. I thought it was fantastic and I'll definitely make it again.

EXCELLENT! Served this on New Year's Day while everyone was watching football. They practically inhaled it and I had at least 5 requests for the recipe. Thank you!

This was great! I will use this any time I need a great dip. Thanks!

I'm not sure this dip is going to make it to the party! Next time, I will reduce the amount of jalpenos, though, probably by about 1/2. But, it could be too spicy because of the salsa I used (Newman's Hot)

Delicious! Made it for my workplaces 'bean' fest, and my co-workers loved it!! I used a Medium picante sauce, and it had just the right amount of spice...thanks!
