Gracious Vegan Refried Bean Dip

By the Gracious Vegan

I have perfected this gem over time. I believe it was originally in an ad for mayonnaise, but I've tinkered with it several different ways since then, and now it is a pleasing dip that pleases a crowd. It can be served with chips or with vegetables. 

Stir all ingredients together until well mixed. Bake in small ovenproof dish, 350 ⁰ for 30 minutes until bubbly (or microwave for about 5 minutes). Makes about 2 cups.

  • 1/4 c. vegan mayonnaise 
  • 1 can (16 oz.) refried beans (or 1.5 c. pinto beans, drained, mashed)
  • 1 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies
  • ¼ t. or more Tabasco or sriracha sauce (or you can mince a chipotle chili and add adobo sauce if you prefer smoky-spicy)

Timing: about 15 minutes (if you microwave it -- about 45 minutes if you bake it)

Nutrition: Mostly whole-food

Gluten-free
