Hi, I’m Brooke and I’m one of The Crafting Chicks! I’m so happy to be sharing a recipe here today, and can I just tell you that I love being “name twins” with the ever-talented Brooke of All Things Thrifty? :) Plus, I’ve known Mr. All Things Thrifty since 8th grade so we go way (way) back. What a power couple! Glad to have them both as sweet friends.

Now, on to the food! This recipe was a favorite of my roommates and I in college, and whenever I make it I think of all the fun times we had! It’s a delicious appetizer that is so easy to throw together, and you can keep it warm in the crockpot as long as you want—it’s Easy Cheesy Bean Dip.

While the hamburger is cooking, put the softened cream cheese into a bowl. Then add the black beans, refried beans, and Cheez Whiz to the bowl and mix it all together.

Heat on LOW until warmed through, then you can keep it on the WARM setting while you hang out and and dip the chips! You could also warm it up in a big pot on the stove if you wanted to, I just like how the crockpot keeps it nice and warm. This stuff is so yummy and slightly addicting.
