You can use 8 slices of American cheese or one 8-ounce block of cream cheese in place of the processed cheese. Using reduced-fat or fat-free versions works well, too.

I know most people have a favorite cheese dip, but I wanted to share mine because it's thick with refried beans and full of flavor thanks to four added spices. Serve alongside tortilla or frito chips, or on flour tortillas as a base for quick and easy burritos. - Tara



  • 1 (16-oz.) can refried beans
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1rounded cup cubed, processed cheese (like Velveeta)


  1. Place refried beans, chunky salsa, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and cumin in a 1.5-quart temp-tations® baking dish, and stir to combine.
  2. Top with processed cheese, cover with plastic wrap, and pierce the center of the plastic wrap with a fork to vent air. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  3. Peel back plastic wrap, stir well, and then re-cover and microwave on high for an additional 3 minutes, or until very hot and bubbly. Stir well and serve immediately.
