Captain Sorensen's® Datil Pepper Bean Dip. 


2 cups (16 ounces) Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican

1 can (16 ounces) refried beans

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

10 oz bowl  Firehouse Chili  (any substitute will do)

Approx. 1/4 cup (depending on desired heat) Captain Sorensen's Datil Pepper Hot Sauce (alternative would be a sweet and spicy hot sauce)


In a 9 inch square pan, spread cream cheese evenly on the bottom of the pan. Next, layer the refried beans on top. Drizzle Captain's Sorensen's Datil Pepper Hot Sauce over the beans and spread evenly with a spoon for sauce in every bite. Pour the bowl of chili evenly on top of the beans and hot sauce. Cover with cheddar cheese and bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Serve immediately with corn chips.
