Ask anyone in my family what my dad’s specialty dishes are and every single person will tell you – his mouth-watering lasagna and his Cheesy Chili Bean Dip. I can’t tell you how the tradition started because it’s been requested for so many holidays for so many years. On Thanksgiving, he makes two pans; one for the family, and one for the fridge so we can have our own pan later.
It’s not difficult to see why once you taste it. It’s a no-brainer for him because it’s super easy to make. I love it, but what I don’t love is the Satan’s-fire-in-my-belly feeling whenever I eat it; and I always eat it, despite knowing what it does to me. I think we all have a dish like that, right?
After I had kids, heartburn became a far more regular occurrence for me. Soda, alcohol, chocolate, garlic, even some fruits, and yes, dad’s bean dip – all cause me heartburn. What else do these foods have in common? Most of them, if not all, are traditionally part of holiday celebrations.
A few years ago, when I had an ulcer developing, my doctor recommended Nexium® 24HR 42 ct. Tablets (though not a treatment for ulcers). I was so excited to partner with them on this post because Nexium® 24HR is a product I use because just one pill a day provides all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn, no matter what triggers it.*
This means that I’m protected from heartburn so I can savor the best of the Holidays – even my dad’s amazing Cheesy Chili Bean Dip!
Dad’s Cheesy Chili Bean Dip Recipe
Thanks to my dad, I have his recipe to share so you can see why this bean dip is the most requested dish to share during the holidays!
It’s simple to make and will be a hit with anyone – especially anyone prepared with their dose of Nexium® 24HR 🙂
In a bowl, mix together browned ground beef, a packet of taco seasoning, a can of your favorite chili, a can of refried beans, and a jar of taco sauce.
Mix well and pour into a pan. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake at 375 degrees until cheese is melted and bubbling.
You guys, it’s THAT easy. My dad is an uber genius!
