5-Ingredient Creamy Refried Bean Dip Recipe: The MVP of Your Gameday Gathering

We love our queso dip, but sometimes you want a little bean action. This easy warm refried bean dip recipe is cheesy, creamy and packed with Mexican flavors. 

The easy Mexican bean dip is made with cream cheese, refried beans, salsa, taco seasoning and pepper jack cheese. You can use canned refried beans or homemade refried beans. Same with the taco seasoning. A packet of premade taco seasoning works, but if you want to make homemade taco seasoning, go for it. Pepper jack cheese adds even more flavor, but cheddar, colby jack, Monterey Jack or a Mexican cheese works well, too. 

If you're serving it during the football games, transfer it to a slow cooker so it stays warm. You could fancy it up with some chopped cilantro or pico de gallo. This dip will go fast, so consider doubling the recipe for your get-together. 

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 1 box (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) refried beans
  • 1 cup salsa (fire-roasted salsa adds a lot of flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning, or to taste
  • 2 cups grated pepper jack cheese or your favorite cheese
  • tortilla chips or corn chips, for serving

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the cream cheese, refried beans, salsa and taco seasoning in a saucepot. Stir over low heat until heated through and well combined. 
  2. Add the grated pepper jack. Stir until cheese melts. Serve with tortilla chips.
