Bean dip is always a favorite appetizer, and my favorite kind to make is this spicy bean dip. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s so easy to make.

It’s basically a mix, heat, and serve dip that you only need five ingredients to make. Just warm it all up on the stove, and then add your favorite tortilla chips for dipping. It’s great if you need a last-minute appetizer or just want a quick and easy warm dip for parties, game days, or holiday get-togethers.

What Is Bean Dip?

Bean dip can be made with different beans, including refried beans. It’s usually combined with cheese and served warm, but there are cold versions, too.

For this bean dip recipe, I keep things really simple! I like to use canned refried beans, and the prep time and cook time total is about 15 minutes.

How to Make Homemade Spicy Bean Dip 

Place the soup, beans, sour cream, salsa, and hot sauce in a medium-sized saucepan. Stir and warm the dip over medium heat. Cook and stir the dip until it’s smooth and hot – this will take about 10 to 12 minutes. 

Transfer the spicy bean dip to a serving bowl and serve it with tortilla chips.

Recipe Tips

Beans: I like to use refried pinto beans for this dip, but you can also use refried black beans to change it up.

Salsa: We like chunky-style salsa, but any salsa you like will work. For a twist, try using salsa verde.

Hot Sauce: Our favorite hot sauce is Tapatio, but feel free to use your favorite. You can also adjust the heat level by adding more or less.

Optional Garnishes: If you want to dress it up for serving, try adding freshly ground black pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, chopped tomatoes, or sliced black olives for garnish. A sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro is excellent, too.

Dippers: We love tortilla chips, but you can serve spicy bean dip with carrots, celery, and other chips that you like. 

Leftovers: Any leftovers will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days.

Now that you know how to make hot bean dip, you’ll want to make a batch anytime you want a great dip to serve. It’s so easy; you might have it memorized once you’ve read through the recipe! Give it a try; it really is the best bean dip – I hope you enjoy it!
