  • 1  1/4 cups diced fire roasted tomatoes
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 ounce can diced green chiles

  • tortilla chips for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread the refried beans out to cover the bottom of a baking dish.
  3. Layer the tomatoes over the refried beans.

  5. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the sour cream layer to cover it.
  6. Place baking dish in the oven and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. When done, remove the baked fiesta dip and place on a heat resistant surface.

  • You can drain a bit of the excess liquid from the diced tomatoes if you like, to make the finished dip a bit more solid.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Reheat portions in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
