"Just like the bean dip you buy in the store but a lot less expensive. The heat can be easily controlled."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (15 ounce) can
pinto beans, rinsed and drained
canned jalapeno pepper
My son is addicted to the Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos recipe on this site, so I always have tortilla chips on hand. I was looking for something else to go with the chips -- I love nachos, but unlike Mr. Pickypants, I get tired of them -- and found this recipe. I followed the recipe almost exactly -- I have no tolerance for heat in my food, so I omitted the jalapenos (and indeed, that mere 1/8 t. of cayenne was at my threshold!). This dip is light and flavorful, nothing like the heavy, pasty stuff that comes in a can; and it took just a few minutes to make! Thanks, PresidentJim; you have my vote! 3/10/2014: Just a couple of notes: If you drain the beans well, you will get a thicker dip. And although you will think it needs salt, don't do it! You'll get plenty of salt from the chips.
It was good, but way too salty for me. I would recommend cutting the salt in half at the least maybe even to 1/4 tsp and taste it before adding more. If you want heat add half a jalapeño seeded and diced.
This dip is wonderful! My hubby loved it! I did add 2 roasted green chilies, 1/8 tsp. of garlic salt and a pinch of cumin. No more buying the little can of bean dip!
This was a very simple recipe, I like that part. The suggested amount of salt was WAY TOO MUCH, in my opinion. I'd cut it in half, if not more. I didn't have any jalepenos or cayenne pepper, so I added chipolte pepper powder. I put some cheese on top and microwaved it for about 30-45 seconds and I've got a delicious, cheap, easy dip!
Excellent! So much cheaper to make than the canned stuff you can buy in the store and so much better. Definitely worth your time to make this!
I liked this recipe but I thought it was a little too salty for my taste. I will be making it again but cutting the salt down. Also, 3 jalapeno slices do not give a lot of heat. I would recommend trying it and then adding more to your liking.
I've made a similar recipe of my own. You can also add fat free Greek yogurt for extra calcium and protein. Also works well with whole roasted garlic cloves and smoked paprika.
