Are you a fan of the Fritos Bean Dip you buy in a can in the chip aisle of the supermarket? If so, you will LOVE this Copycat Fritos Bean Dip Recipe that is almost like the original – but even better! It’s super easy to make using canned refried beans, jarred jalapeños and a few spices. The great thing about making your own is that not only is it less expensive, but you’re also able to adjust the spices to your own liking. Love a little heat? Add more peppers. Not a spicy person? Cut down on the peppers or leave them out altogether.
The other awesome thing about this dip is that it is really quite healthy. Beans are packed with nutrition and fiber. For the best nutritional option, look for canned beans that are low in fat, which most of them are. You can also choose fat-free beans, but I think a little fat in there makes a more creamy dip.
