Larry Jr's Famous

Bean Dip

This recipe is from my son, Larry. He has taken a simple dip recipe and enhanced it considerably. From a bean dip, he has changed it into a "toastada" event par excellance! Super Bowl Sunday, a sunny weekend in the patio or just kicking back in front of the TV, it will be a hit at your next party.

Preparation Time : 45 minutes
