Why You Will Love Texas Trash Dip

- IT’S A GREAT PARTY DIP TO FEED A CROWD – One dish that I’ve always had a soft spot for is a good dip recipe. Anytime I go to a party and see that someone brought a dip, I’m all about it! This warm bean dip is the perfect thing to feed a crowd!
What Is Texas Trash Dip?
I’ve gotta admit, it’s not the best name for a dip. But I didn’t come up with it. Texas Trash is usually a creamy, cheesy bean dip that is loaded with Tex-Mex Flavor. I’ve seen it used as a side dish on a plate with tacos and rice. I’ve also seen it used as dip. It works for either! I love recipes that can be used for more than one thing!
Cream Cheese Bean Dip Ingredients
As you can tell by the name. We are going to need a lot of cream, a lot of cheese and a lot of beans. Pretty simple. Here is what you’ll need to get started:
- REFRIED BEANS – One can. Can use low fat beans if you’d like.
- CREAM CHEESE – Make sure it’s softened. Philadelphia Cream Cheese makes some fun varieties that can add some great flavor to this dip. Try Garden Vegetable, Jalapeno or Buffalo Style Cream Cheese!
- TACO SEASONING MIX – Any brand will do.
- SOUR CREAM – Feel free to use light sour cream to cut some calories from this dish.
- TOMATOES WITH GREEN CHILES – Again, there are lots of brands and lots of varieties, get whatever sounds good to you.
- CHEESE – We use a combination of Mexican Cheese Blend and Pepper Jack Cheese, but you can change it up with whatever kind of cheese you like.
Can You Make This Dish Ahead Of Time?
I would caution against it. Anything with this much cheese and cream will probably not freeze and reheat too well. This dish is best served fresh. With only 5 minutes of prep and 20 minutes of cooking time, it should be pretty simple to have the cheesy bean dip ready to go within minimal effort!
If you do have leftovers, you can microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring often.
Can You Make Texas Trash Dip In The Slow Cooker?
Yep! You can certainly make this dip in your Crock Pot! I would just mix all of the ingredients into your slow cooker, then cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Just keep an eye on it. It will be done when it’s warm and all the cheese is melted.
What Can You Dip In Texas Trash Dip?
Just about anything works in this dish: tortilla chips, bread sticks. bagel chips, carrots, broccoli, crackers, potato chips and pretzels will all work.
Notes, Tips and Variations
- ADD A PROTEIN – Some ground beef or shredded chicken would be awesome and would make this more of a main course.
- MAKE IT SPICIER! – Spice things up by putting jalapenos, chilis or any other peppers into the mix.
- GARNISH! – A great garnish can make all the difference! Top with diced up tomatoes, cilantro, guacamole, avocado slices, green onions or olives!
