I won’t lie…the only “sport” I watch is auto racing, so I am not the kind to do a big Super Bowl party with a bunch of snack foods. That said, this dip would be perfect for such an occasion as the Super Bowl, so I thought it would be a perfect time to share this on the blog. Let’s dig in.
Perfect Game Day Dip
A yummy layered dip with refried beans, cream cheese, and hamburger. Perfect for snacking on during whatever big game you're watching.
- 1 can refried beans
- 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
- 1/4 tsp chili lime seasoning
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp southwestern seasoning
- 1/2 white onion, chopped
- 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 1/2 bag Mexican cheese blend
- 1/2 lb hamburger (I used a 90/10 blend)
- 1/8 cup taco seasoning
- crushed tortilla chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- In a medium non-stick pan over medium-low heat, add refried beans, chili lime seasoning, and cumin. Cook until heated through. Stir in diced green chilies. Spread bean mixture evenly in the bottom of a 2-quart glass baking dish.
- Top with 1/4 bag of the Mexican cheese blend.
- Wipe out the frypan and drizzle with olive oil. On medium-high heat, add onions, green pepper, and frozen corn. When these start to soften, add in the garlic, and diced jalapeno. Cook until the veggies start to brown.
- Spoon half the veggie mixture over the bean and cheese layer.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo. Stir in the southwestern seasoning, a handful of shredded cheese, and the rest of the vegetables.
- Spread this evenly over the veggie layer.
- In the same frypan you used to cook the vegetables, brown the hamburger. Stir in the taco seasoning. Add a little water if there isn’t enough moisture in the meat. Sprinkle this evenly over the cream cheese layer.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- If using the crushed tortilla chips, sprinkle this over the meat and then top with the remaining cheese and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Serve while warm with tortilla or pita chips.
This dip was really great, especially with the crushed tortilla chips on top. It was a good mix of textures and flavors and had just the right amount of heat for me. I don’t do super spicy food.
The cream cheese layer is actually inspired by Ree Drummond’s Hot Corn Dip.
