Works For Me Wednesday Summer Recipe

Well, I have read this for about six months now, and I finally decided to participate :) If you haven't already... you need to go to We Are That Family

One of my favorite things in the summer is to make a few dips, and have that, chips, and bbq chicken & veggies.  Decided to share two of my favorite dips today (couldn't pick just one).  They are even better if you make them a day, or even a couple hours ahead.  But, if you are like me, they are good after they chill in the refrigerator.  Hope you enjoy!

Bean Dip Like the One You Can Buy at the Store that NEVER Goes On Sale :)

  1. Combine refried beans with the other ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Puree ingredients on high speed until smooth.
  3. Cover and chill for at least an hour before serving.
Easy Peasy Ole Dip

  1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Beat till smooth and creamy.
  3. Cover and refrigerate several hours, till flavors are blended.
  4. Serve with assorted raw veggies or tortilla chips.


  1. I make a dip similar to your second one, but I use that as just one layer. :) I put refried beans on the bottom, then the creamy layer, then top with shredded cheese, tomatoes, black olives, or whatever I have on hand. Yum, now I'm hungry!

  2. Welcome to WFMW! It's one of my favorite memes-- I can't tell you how many useful tips I've picked up there! :)

    Both of those dips look great, definitely things my family would enjoy.

    I posted a super-easy Strawberry Pie recipe for WFMW today... it's one of my favorites!

  3. Mmmmm...sounds so yummy!
    Thanks for visiting my blog...I knew the bear would get everyone's attention!
