Favorite Refried Bean Dip

Sheryl McGlochlin - Thursday, October 07, 2010
Combine in a slow cooker:

1 tsp garlic powder
6 c. water
1 tbsp onion powder OR 1/8 c. dry onion flakes
1/3 c. millet (this is a whole grain)
2 c. washed pinto beans
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)

Cook 6 - 8 hours
Drain if necessary and reserve some of the liquid.
Mash the beans w/ a fork.

ADD:

1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 Tbsp chili powder

Add some of the reserved liquid if necessary.

To make Bean Dip Salsa:

Add corn and Picante Sauce, serve with chips.

To make a layered Bean Dip: Spread the refried beans all over a platter, add shredded cheese. Melt it on top if you like. Top with Sour Cream. Don't forget to place a bowl of tortilla chips nearby. This will be one of the fastest dishes to disappear! Everyone loves it. You can add more layers if you like: Shredded Lettuce, Sliced Olives, a bowl of guacamole, etc.
