Cooking with Hargrove: Skillet Queso Bean Dip

Friday’s recipe of the week comes to us from Kimme Hargrove.

1 cup tomatillo (green) salsa
15 ounce can of refried beans
8 ounce block cream cheese
1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces pepper jack (or jalapeño) cheese, shredded
4 ounces mozzarella, shredded
Optional toppings:
Red pepper flakes (1/4-1/2 teaspoon, to taste)
Fresh parsley, chopped Sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine salsa and refried beans in a cast-iron skillet. Heat on low until smooth and hot, stirring frequently.
Add cream cheese, cayenne pepper and salt. Stir until cream cheese is melted and smooth. Add pepper jack cheese and stir until melted and smooth.
Top with mozzarella cheese (do not stir this in!), red pepper flakes and parsley.
Heat 10-15 minutes until bubbly. May need to broil on low for 2 minutes to get cheese slightly browned and bubbly.
Serve immediately IN the skillet with tortilla chips and sour cream.
