2 ingredient Mexican dip


  • This is one of those dips that grows on you. After a few bites you can't stop yourself.
  • If you want to up the flavour content you can add some Tabasco to make it spicier.
  • You can also add some cumin or even some taco seasoning at the beginning to give it a flavour punch.
  • We used natural corn chips which married well with the re-fried beans. If you used flavoured corn chips it would over-power the flavour of the dip.
  • You could also serve Guacamole dip on the platter alongside this dip. They make a great combination.
  • If you want another super-quick dip then try this Quick sour cream dip.
  • This 3 ingredient beetroot dip is bursting with fresh flavours and the colour is great too.
  • For a trip back to the 70's you can whip up this French onion dip and crudites and the whole family will dig in.
  • If you like a warm dip to share with a crowd then try this Spinach cobb dip. It is a real crowd pleaser.
  • This Roasted eggplant dip has a deep smokey flavour that goes perfectly with all Middle Eastern foods.
  • If you think spice is nice then this creamy Pumpkin chilli dip is a yummy treat. Just grab some pita bread and spread it on.
