Easy Bean Dip with Salsa Letters

My food dehydrator is usually running from mid-June through the end of October. Dehydrating is a great preservation method as the process not only enhances flavors but it makes everything smaller and easier to store. Most fully dehydrated fruits, vegetables and leathers are shelf stable after vacuum sealing. Here’s an easy dip and a great way to highlight your Salsa Leather letters. And find my Fresh Salsa recipe here.

Easy Bean Dip

  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2-1 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/2-1 cup grated cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

In a medium bowl, mix beans and all spices. Microwave 3-5 minutes on high, stirring at each minute until mixture is hot. Scoop bean mixture into an oven safe casserole dish. Spread yogurt or sour cream over beans, top with cheese. Place salsa letters over cheese. Cook in a preheated 400º oven 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm with chips and Fresh Salsa.Salsa Letters
