What Type of Beans To Use For A Smoky Bacon And Bean Dip?
How We Made Our Smoky Bacon and Bean Dip:
First, we blended the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Then we added the sour cream and mixed it on medium- speed until creamy.
We pureed one can of the beans in the food processor and blended it into the mixture. The other can of beans was gently mixed into the creamy mixture. Then half of the shredded cheddar cheese and half of the bacon was folded into the dip. We transferred the dip into a casserole dish and topped it with the remaining cheese and bacon. After a 20-minute bake it was hot and bubbly and ready to serve.

- 1-8oz package cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
- 1 teaspoon smoky paprika powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 cans (15.7 oz.) Cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, divided
- 12 slices bacon cooked and crumbled - divided
- Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
- Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl and beat until smooth with an electric mixer. Add the sour cream, liquid smoke, paprika, salt, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder. Process until smooth and creamy.
- Add one can of beans to the food processor or blender and process until smooth, then add to the mixing bowl. Blend on medium speed just until well combined.
- Gently fold in the remaining drained beans, half of the cheddar cheese and half of the bacon.
- Tip the mixture into an oven proof 2-quart casserole dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese and bacon on top.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Serve hot with corn chips or crackers
- It is important to have the cream cheese soft, so be sure to take it out of the fridge in plenty of time to let it come to room temperature. Softening the cream cheese will help you whip it to a smooth and creamy consistency. It is almost impossible to get lumps out of a cold whipped cream cheese.
- If you forget to take the cream cheese from the fridge to soften, you can cut it into chunks and place it into the microwave and zap it a couple times for 10 seconds.
