Yield: 20 servings
|1 pounds||Sharp Cheddar Cheese; cut into 1-inch cubes|
|1 pounds||Monterey Jack Cheese; cut into 1-inch cubes|
|1 can||(16-oz.) Refried Black Beans|
|1 can||(16-oz.) Refried Brown Beans|
|2 cups||Prepared Salsa|
|1 large||Red Onion; chopped|
|5||Cloves Garlic; minced|
|1 tablespoon||Cayenne Pepper|
|1 tablespoon||Chili Powder|
|Juice from one fresh Lime|
Mix together the cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses, black and brown refried beans, salsa, chopped onion, minced garlic, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, and lime juice in a crock pot or large saucepan.
Cook slowly over moderate heat. Stir occasionally, more often if using a saucepan rather than a crock pot.
Serve when the cheese is melted and the onions are translucent. Cooking time will vary with the method of preparation. Great party-sized appetizer served with tortilla chips of your choice.
