"This is like nachos in reverse. Instead of having all the goodies on top of the chips, bake this in a cast-iron skillet or oven-proof large pie dish. You can still add your favorite toppings after it's baked and scoop up the deliciousness with tortilla chips."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is a fun dip to serve the kids... and it was nice to make something that tasted a little different than the Velveeta dips I often use as a dip for tortilla chips. The green chilies gave it a lot of flavor... this was not a spicy dip at all. VERY cheesy! I made as directed (I drained and rinsed the black beans and drained the tomatoes -- it didn't say to do that, but I guessed, and I'm glad I did because the consistency seemed right without the extra liquid), but added a little extra cheese to the top before I switched on the broiler and let the cheese get nice and brown before I served it.
