Black Bean Dip for My Girl Paula

This is my third recipe for My Girl Paula, and it was delicious! In fact, I made it again a couple of days later. It really hit the spot! I have to admit, I haven't had Velveeta cheese in many years. But, I stuck with the recipe and made the dip with Velveeta cheese. This dip was flavorful the night it was made, but even better the next day.

A couple of days later, I made this dip again without the Velveeta cheese. I added 4 oz. of cream cheese instead of the Velveeta and I liked this version even better. I'm tempted to make this dip again, but there is such a thing as too much beans ; )

Black Bean Dip - Adapted from The Lady & Sons, Too! -Paula Deen
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons chopped onions
One 4-oz. can green chiles, chopped
1 tomato, diced *I used 1/2 cup salsa*
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1 teaspoon The Lady's House Seasoning
One 15 oz. can black beans with jalapenos
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
4-ounce block Velveeta Mexican cheese product, diced
1- 3 oz. package cream cheese, diced

Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the green chiles, tomato, cilantro, and House Seasoning, and cook for 5 minutes longer. Add the beans and cheeses, and simmer until hot and bubbling. Serve hot with white-corn tortilla chips.


  1. Yes, lol, its definitely a paula recipe, check out all that cheese :D. Looks yummy!

  2. I didn't make this because it conflicted with too many of our dietary requirements but I admit looks delicious. Lucky you.

    I made a broccoli salad by Paula. Although not our recipe, I felt virtuous making something by Paula. Forget it. I love her recipes.

  3. This sounds like a terrific dip. I'll have to try it.

  4. Yummm that looks good!!! I love Velveeta :) Oh...go pick up your award from me over at my latest post :)

  5. Looks delicious! I can see why you want to keep making it :)

  6. I'm so glad you liked it! I wasn't able to make it. I'm in the middle on finals at school. It looks delicious!

  7. I love black bean dip! I have never had velveeta and never really plan to so I'm glad you liked it better with the cream cheese. This is perfect for a party.

  8. I've never met a cheesy bean dip that I didn't love!

  9. What a great idea to sub more cream cheese for the Velveeta. I'll have to try that next time. Glad you enjoyed it!

  10. Thank you for both of your comments! This looks delish, I'm going to bookmark it. I was just reading your Greek yogurt post, and I had gotten the same set of coupons, but didn't think to ask her for more as a giveaway. Maybe I should look for her email.

  11. I'm glad you made this one. I took one look at the recipe and said, "Nope!" but I admit, I was curious. It just didn't sound like my kind of thing, but I bet the hubs would love it....I may have to give it a shot after all!
