Best Ever Chorizo Bean Dip

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 8 or so 1x


The best bean dip EVER with layers of cheese, chorizo, and creamy dreamy seasoned refried beans. 


  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 can pinto beans, lightly drained (some liquid still left)
  • 1/3 cup chicken or veggie stock
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 ounces crumbled cooked chorizo
  • 14 ounces grated melty cheese (monterrey jack, queso quesadilla, etc)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Toppings: sliced jalapeno, diced tomatoes, cilantro leaves, anything you love!


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. In a bowl, combine both cans of beans with the stock and spices. Mash the pinto beans lightly with a fork as you mix.
  2. Combine half of the grated cheese with the sour cream and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. Layer the dip in a large baking dish (9x13 or equivalent): all the beans, the chorizo, the sour cream mixture, and the remaining grated cheese.
  4. Bake the dip for 20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Top with fresh stuff, serve with chips, YES.


I make this in advance often and keep it in the fridge for a day or two before I bake it. You'll need to add some baking time, and it's ready when it's hot and bubbly!
