Serve it as a dip or as supper! This simple dip is layers of beans, cheese, sour cream and anything else you want! So simple and oh so delicious!

There is nothing better than making a quick dinner and then being able to relax while digging in. This simple dish can easily be served as supper or even as a pre-meal snack. It's packed full of beans so it has lots of protein and fiber. Perfect for keeping you full. We like to serve ours with a slathering of sour cream on top but don't worry if you are not a fan. It still tastes delicious even without the tangy sour cream addition.
