Kidney Bean Dip Recipe

We serve this thick and spicy bean dip hot, topped with grated tasty cheese and diced tomato. Corn chips are our preferred accompaniment. This dip can also be used as an ingredient in nachos.

The bacon can be omitted to make this dip suitable for vegetarians.

We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.

1 x 420g tin kidney beans, drained
100g peeled and roughly chopped onion
120g roughly chopped red capsicum (seeds removed)
100g roughly chopped shortcut bacon (or bacon rashers with the fat removed)
40ml (2 tablespoons) hot sweet chilli sauce, or to taste
250ml (1 cup) water

Place all ingredients in a large saucepan.

Cover saucepan and bring mixture to the simmer. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove lid from saucepan and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until mixture has thickened and liquid has reduced but not completely evaporated (this should take about 30 minutes). ©

Allow mixture to cool for about 30 minutes, then blend or process until fairly smooth.

Refrigerate or freeze dip in an airtight container until required, or reheat immediately for serving.

Heat dip in a saucepan or in the microwave and pour into a serving bowl. If it is too thick after heating, stir in a small amount of water until it reaches the desired consistency. Top with grated cheese and diced tomato. Serve with corn chips.

Hi, i doubled batch and put half in freezer for my husbands 30th. I served it on a platter, spread over a layer of phily cheese topped with chopped spring onions, tomatoes and lots of grated cheese. Not much left at the end!!!

I made double of this dip for New Years Eve and served it hot with loads of tasty cheese on top and cornchips. What a hit! It even tasted absolutely fabulous the next day cold on crusty bread. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes.

this dip is fantastic! I've been looking for a recipe like this over half my life! I went to a friends party once when I was a kid and her mum made nacho's with a bean dip instead of salsa and I was hooked, but her mum would never give away her recipe!! but this recipe is making me think it was because she was feeding her vegetarian daughter bacon for years without her knowing it LoL my friends mum did always see the vegetarianism as a bit of a joke
