I am definitely a sucker for a good dip and for sure anything hispanic! I love them cold or hot too. This specific recipe is so cheesy and flavorful straight out of the oven. Normally, people pair their dips with plain tortilla chip. You can totally do that here but we just LOVE it with Cool Ranch Doritos. They just add something ‘extra’ and enhance the dip so much. It also just gives you a good change-up from the typical dip-chips out there!

How long does bean dip last?

Bean dip that has continually been refrigerated can last approximately 3-4 days as long as it had been tightly sealed. This specific recipe doesn’t have anything that would spoil quickly as long as it is refrigerated after use.

Can you freeze bean dip?

This dip can definitely be frozen for up to 2-3 months. You MUST make sure the container is completely sealed to ensure quality. You can defrost in the refrigerator for a few hours before you’re ready to serve, or heat it up on the stove or in the microwave and stir before serving. Easy!

As great as this is for a gathering, I have also just made it for my family during the week. It’s a great addition to tacos, paired with our Sam’s Club Enchiladas, or even top it on some nachos and bake! It’ll last, if sealed tightly and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days! If reheating in the oven, be sure to cover with foil so the beans don’t dry out!
