I have no idea why this is called Man’s Dip, but I do know that this is a CRAZY good bean dip! This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, and I’ve had this recipe on my “to-make” tailgating recipe list for years. I hate that I waited so long to finally try this dip. It was SO good. Think creamy Mexican bean dip with a kick.
This Man’s Dip starts with a can of bean dip. You add cream cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning, hot sauce and cheese. You can make this Man’s Dip as spicy as you like. We added a few tablespoons of hot sauce and it had a nice kick. If you are sensitive to heat, start with a teaspoon of hot sauce. You could also use the canned bean dip with jalapeños in it. You could even add diced jalapeños to the bean dip mixture if you want to really make this spicy!
You can make this Man’s Dip ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake. We served this with Fritos. It would also be great with tortilla chips or some veggies (green pepper strips or celery). This was a HUGE hit at our tailgate. It was one of the first things to go. It has already been requested again for this weekend. Give this a try ASAP! I promise it will score a touchdown at your party!
