Killer DnD Bean Dip

This is a simple, cheap dip that I thought up years ago to bring to a late-night D&D session. It worked so well that I've made it for most of the parties and D&D games I've gone to since - and it's always the first thing to go.

The ingredients you'll need are:

1 can refried beans
1/2 small can diced/sliced green chili peppers
1 heaping tablespoon salsa
1 heaping tablespoon sour cream
Hot sauce
Chili powder
Shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
1 pinch secret ingredient - don't worry, chances are you've got this one somewhere

Step 2: Mix the beans and cheese together

Open up the can of beans and empty into a microwave-safe container. Add as much cheese as you like - a small handful is enough for me, you may want to add more or less depending on how strongly flavored your cheese is. Mix together and microwave, stirring occasionally to make sure the cheese is melting and the beans are heating evenly. When the cheese is mostly melted, continue to the next step.

Step 3: Add your other ingredients

Add your sour cream, salsa, green chilies, cayenne pepper, and hot sauce to the warm beans. Stir until mixed.

Yup, cinnamon. Add just a pinch, then mix it up and try the dip. Somehow it seems to tie all the other flavors together. You should just about be able to taste it, but not well enough to tell what it is. keep your friends guessing :-). Now that you've tried it, add more chili powder, green peppers, and hot sauce until you get the flavor you want. Or if you really want to mess with your friends, add green food coloring.

Step 5: Finished!

You're done! Refrigerate until you're ready to serve, it should keep for about a week before it starts getting "extra flavor". It'll harden up a little bit as it chills, but you should still be able to scoop it easily with a good strong chip.

But what to do with the half-empty can of chili peppers, the open bag of cheese, and the salsa and sour cream?

Make nachos!

Just remember, don't cook your sour cream! Serve it on the side.

wow. so cool .

it's a DC 15 craft check with a +2 circumstance bonus because everyone loves bean dip :) how long does it take to make?
So, is this then a Craft check, or part of a profession?

It's a check against your craft/dip skill, but you can use it untrained and the difficulty's pretty low.
amazing. this is my bean dip. I use home-made salsa though. well done.

I know this is only for D&D, but I may try it out with Lejendary Adventures. I'll let you know if anything explodes. Gygaxian Dip FTW!
After all, a dip like this must be good with any fantasy roleplaying game you wish to play! PS I haven't tried it but I started drooling once you mentioned refried beans. PPS Think I might try this at a DnD session.
ok I'm going to make some of this tonight, how much chili powder do I use?
haha I dont play D&D but I play a game alot like it, so I'll make some lol.

I dont play DnD, but i have been snacking on one batch of this stuff for three days now. Taco powder and a little Lea and Perrins makes it even better.

Nice recipe! The Ampersand (the and sign) screws up your title though. Change it to a lower-case "n" and all will be well... This is a bug in the way Instructables interprets the ampersand.
