Hot Fiesta Dip

If you are looking for a tasty appetizer recipe that will appeal to the masses, this hot fiesta dip is very easy to make and comes together in literally minutes. You can even make this recipe your own by using your own homemade salsa, or by adding some of your favorite ingredients. This would be a perfect addition to your Super Bowl party table!

I added refried beans to the original recipe. You can toss in green chiles, fresh cilantro, or use your own salsa or salsa verde. Serve with a side of sour cream if you add anything hot, such as jalapeños.

    I've been craving Mexican cuisine for days now… I saw this post, and I couldn't take it NO MORE! I ran to the store, got all the fixins, had my hubby whip me up a quick batch of ho-made salsa, and prepared the dip alongside some store-bought taquitos. Oh my… we gorged on this for lunch! My son who cannot stand refried beans, loved it. Hooray! Another healthy source of protein and veggies! I didn't use quite as much corn as you suggested, just a personal thing I guess. But, yummy!!! My daughter commented as she walked away from the table: "Yum, Mom, that was best lunch ever!"
