For an appetizer that’s almost as easy to serve as pita chips and hummus . . .

Spread refried beans into a quiche pan, pie plate, or other shallow serving bowl.  Layer other ingredients on top ~ spread salsa, leaving 1/2″ around the rim with no salsa; sprinkle grated cheese over the center, leaving 1″ around the rim with no cheese.  Top with chopped lettuce, tomatoes, olives, red pepper,  onion, jalapeno (or anything else you like on bean burritos).

Adjust heat by using mild, medium, hot, or flaming salsa, or by adding cayenne or taco seasoning to the beans.  Delicious served with tortilla chips, pita chips, fritos, melba rounds, crackers, or raw veggies.

Spread leftover dip on softened tortillas to make Veggie Wraps.

Aah . . . that’s better! 

What about you?  Do you have a favorite “go to” appetizer you whip together for unexpected company?
