this festive bean dip! Okay, it’s only festive because we’re eating it today, but that absolutely still counts!

By adding a few simple ingredients, you can turn a boring can of refried beans – or better yet, fresh-made beans quickly mashed over high heat – into the best bean dip ever! All you need is a can of refried beans, sour cream, cumin and chili powder. After blending all in your Magic Bullet, transfer to your serving dish and heat up in the microwave.

I like to add a little shredded Mexican style cheese on top. This creamy bean dip is the perfect side to your favorite Mexican dish, but you can also serve it as an appetizer or snack with tortilla chips.
