Fritos bean dip

I’m pretty sure everyone loves Fritos Bean Dip recipe, but at $3 to $4 a jar it just isn’t really that frugal. My number one motto to save money on many of my favorite dips is to make it myself.

This recipe is a very easy recipe and will please a crowd making it perfect for any party or gathering. Those little jars don’t last long with a crowd so this is such as frugal idea.

Now I used a can of refried beans in this recipe because I hadn’t made my homemade refried beans in a while. I was out of time, but you will save more money if you start with 1 ½ cups of homemade refried beans instead of the can.

Don’t worry -they are super easy to make and will cost you a fraction of just buying a can.

More ideas to try with this easy bean dip recipe.

Serve with fritos or any type of corn chips or scoops. We have also used tortilla chips.

Veggies are also good. We like bell peppers, carrots and cucumbers.

Just use what you prefer! I like to put extra jalapeno peppers on mine so I always have an extra bowl of those by the dip.

It’s nice for people to be able to add extra if they like the extra heat. You can also add cheese if you are in the mood.

Shredded pepper jack cheese is delicious. You can add it in the mixture or sprinkle it on top. Sharp cheddar is another tasty option.

You can put in a baking dish with cheese and it would be a great side dish as well.

Other tasty ideas include adding taco seasoning to the bean mixture. As you can see, the options are endless for this delicious dip.

I like sour cream and green onions with it. Yum!

If you want to serve this warm and keep it warm, put it in your slow cooker on the warm setting. This is perfect for parties or game day.

  1. I made both the homemade refried beans and then the fritos bean dip. Yummy! on both counts. I started out with a 2lb bag of pinto beans and cooked them overnight in the crockpot. After all was done and blended smoothly in my ninja, I put the majority of the refried beans in 5-16oz jars+freezer bags and then in the freezer. I then put the fritos bean dip in a 16oz jar and then in the fridge for later. This was so easy, especially since I already had all the ingredients in the house.

  2. Cooked my own pinto beans (cheap) and added a teaspoon of lard. Bought my chips at Aldi-their frito look (and taste) alike chips are much cheaper!

  3. Working at a store , made lunch costly. This dip with chips was a constant go to. Thank you for sharing your version, made at home and loved homemade version better. Stayed fresher longer. Even made my own retried beans, another new adventure for me. Yummy and easy

  4. 5 stars
    The kids are crazy for bean dip and I think this is better than the store bought ones. I did double the recipe and it’s outstanding.
