Southwest Skillet Dip

I just love the combination of beans, corn and roasted green chilies with that kick at the back of your throat as you are reaching for yet one more bite. The combination of this dish will certainly leave you wanting another bite. This is a dish that is very versatile, it can be served as a dip, individual appetizers, or even as a great side dish for rice and tortillas.

  1. This is my kind of dip Miz Helen, nice and cheesy but packed with veggies! Perfect for the cold sports on TV days ahead! Thanks, I am definitely putting this on the menu for Super Bowl !

  2. I've never tasted such a dip, but I assure you it looks wonderful to me!!
    I have no doubt it would be a big hit with my family

  3. This sounds wonderful. I love anything served from a black cast iron skillet. It seems so comforting and homey. I agree this could be a side as well as a dip. But I could put a dent in a bag of tostados with this all my myself!
