Beef & Bean Enchilada Dip

Welcome back Elissa from Style Wire! This time she is in the kitchen making a classic beef & bean enchilada dip. Perfect for game day, a pock-luck, appetizers, or simply pair it with a salad as a meal! Not a beef eater? Remove the beef and sub for any protein (ground turkey, chicken, pork etc.). You can even add tofu, or double the beans and skip the meat altogether.

  • Maine Grains Pinto Beans (prepared as refried beans)
  • Kinnealy Ground Beef
