Yummy - Three Cheese Hot Bean Dip

I tried this new recipe for a Holiday Happy Hour recently.  I loved it - I got great reviews from my friends too.  My "gluten-free" friends could also enjoy it!  I found this recipe at Allrecipes


    Just before baking.....


Three Cheese Hot Bean Dip (adapted from Allrecipes)

1  8 oz  cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2  16 oz cans of refried beans
1/2 (1 oz) pkg of taco seasoning
5 drops of Tabasco or other red pepper sauce (or more)
2 Tbsp dried parsley
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1  (8 oz) pkg shredded Cheddar cheese
1  (8 oz) pkg shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray an 8 x 12 baking dish with cooking spray.  In a good size bowl, mix all of the ingredients with half of the cheddar cheese and half of the Monterrey Jack cheese.  Spread into prepared pan.  Top with the rest of the grated cheese and sprinkle with a little extra dried parsley. Bake at 350 for 20 - 30 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.  Serve with favorite chips!
