Thick and Chunky Cheesy Dip

The big game is right around the corner and I was scratching my head for a very easy dip to make for the day.  A couple of neighbors will be coming over and I wanted to make something everyone would enjoy and easy to handle.

I didn’t want the usual dip for my guests. Something new. Something tangy and sweet and hearty with every bite.

Then I remembered about Manwich Thick and Chunky sauce and realized this would be perfect for a new kind of dip.

There are a few ingredients in this dip, but first, let me tell you about the refried beans.

I like to make my own Refried Beans. The taste is so much better and this way I know what they are made from. It’s not hard to do and whatever is left over goes in the freezer for next time.

Homemade Refried Beans

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time40 mins
Course: Vegetables


  • 2 cups of cooked pinto beans
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Prepare the beans by soaking them overnight in water.  The next morning, rinse off beans and place in slow cooker with enough water to generously cover them.  Sometimes I will use chicken broth instead of water.  Let cook on high for about 8 hours.
  • 1 cup of dry beans equals 3 cups of cooked beans
  • In a large pot, saute the onions in oil and then add garlic and saute for a few minutes.  Add beans and other spices.  I do put some water in the pot to make them a little juicy.
  • Once the beans have cooked down for a while, I will mash them with a potato masher until desired consistency.  I like them a little lumpy.
  • You can double or triple this recipe if you want to serve to a large crowd or put in the freezer.
