Amanda's Hot Fiesta Dip

Are you guys as happy about the football season as I am?! I mean, yes, I have the Bengals to root for. But at least football is happening! That lockout had me worried I wouldn't get to see any football at all. So thank God they settled that mess.

Of course you need some snacks to munch on while watching the game! And this Hot Fiesta Dip is a perfect snack or appetizer. Perfect for a party, or even for two like we did. And it's so easy to throw together.... everything happens in the microwave. Finger foods are great because you don't need a fancy plate and fork and knife, and you can just dip some tortilla chips or crackers into this easy appetizer, all while on the couch and watching your fave team.

Hey, even if your team is losing, like mine often is... you'll be *WINNING with this dip.

Hot Fiesta Dip
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1 and 1/2 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 can (about 7 oz) refried beans
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions
Microwave frozen corn according to package directions. Drain. 

On a plate, combine salsa and refried beans, stirring until well combined. Stir in the corn. Cover with plastic wrap and vent, then microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Remove the plastic wrap and immediately sprinkle with shredded cheese; let stand for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with green onions and serve with tortilla chips and/or crackers.

I'm linking up to Tailgating Time! over at Seaside Simplicity.

Dig in!  But no double dipping!  :)

*Speaking of winning, anyone gonna watch the Roast of Charlie Sheen this coming Monday? I hate that guy, but I think I may watch :) 

Peace, and bacon grease!

So glad you liked the dip! It's a favorite here too. I am definitely happy football season is here. We are Bears fans, but love watching them all :)

I've never added corn to my refried bean dip. It sounds like a terrific addition! Thanks for sharing.

P.S. I was shocked that my Bills spanked KC in the opener. I was planning on just being happy the lockout was over.

Okay, seriously...that is an amazing dip! Like you, I'm thrilled that Football Season is here. I'm a die-hard Steelers fan, even tho I live in Jaguars country...

I'm not a huge football fan, but the dip looks great! I love the addition of the corn. :)

First, I'm so over Sheen but am going to have to watch the roast because those always crack me up. Plus Amy Schumer has a hilarious joke that I read about. Plus I think Amy Schumer is HOT.

You should post a link to this at Martha's Tailgating round up.
