I’m always on the lookout for easy, yummy recipes to share with you. I look for things that are simple to make away from a full kitchen, but not boring or bland. I found this take on a Mexican bean dip and just had to share it with you! It’s described as a dip (so a snack) but feel free to make up extra and serve as a main meal.
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup ‘Ketchup With A Kick’
- 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 8-oz can (1 cup) red kidney beans with liquid
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped olives (green or black)
Brown the meat and 1/4 cup onion in a skillet. Stir in ‘Ketchup With A Kick’, chili powder, and salt. Mash in beans. Heat through.
Spread on tortilla chips, corn chips or a tortilla. Garnish with the cheese, olives, and 1/4 cup onion. Serve hot.
What is ‘Ketchup With A Kick’? It’s a phrase (and ingredient) that ESP Boss created. Its ketchup mixed with Tabasco sauce. So, take the 1/4 cup ketchup and stir in the Tabasco, to taste.
