Expert Tips

  • Top this beef bean dip with sliced green onions for even more fresh color and flavor.
  • Make it your own! Instead of beef, try using ground turkey or ground pork for this bean dip. Just be sure to use a nonstick pan to brown your meat of choice.
  • For a pretty presentation, make this Mexican dip with ground beef and refried beans in one dish! Brown the beef in a large cast iron skillet and use the same skillet to bake the dip.
