Baked Layered Bean Dip

This baked cheesy yummy dip disappears fast!  It has a homemade bean dip layer that tastes like the Frito Lay bean dip, a cream cheese & sour cream layer, a hot sauce layer, and lots of cheese!

2 C pinto beans, drained
1 T bacon grease
2-3 T jalapeno slices (the kind from a jar)
1 T jalapeno brine (the juice from the jar)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/4 t 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 C sour cream
1/2 packet taco seasoning
1/2 C hot sauce (I used jarred Taco Bell mild sauce)
1 C shredded cheese (I used Cheddar, but any will do)
Sliced green onions, for garnish
Chips, for serving (I used Fritos)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Blend together the beans, bacon grease, jalapenos, brine, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt & pepper, and cayenne in a food processor. Blend until smooth.  Spread the beans into a greased 8 x 8 casserole pan.  

Next mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning and spread it over the beans.  Pour the hot sauce over the cream cheese layer and spread it to cover.  Sprinkle the cheese all over the top.  Bake for about 15-20 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese.  Garnish with the green onions and serve hot with chips.
