Appetizer Week: Spicy Bean Dip

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy


I don’t do “themed” recipe weeks very often but I needed to add a few more appetizers to the blog and these were a few of my favorites that I made the last couple of weeks. All of these went over really well and I had multiple requests for the recipes. I tend to think of that as a good sign.


It’s an even better sign when something is all gone by the end of the evening! With all of the recipes this week I think there is a good chance of that happening for you.


Day 1 starts with a spicy bean dip, one you can make ahead, decide to make vegetarian friendly or gluten free. If you do make it ahead, just chill and then heat it up in a crock pot. This is best served with tortilla chips.


Cheesy, warm, and beany goodness. It’s hard to have just a bit!
