What To Serve With Bean Dip

The classic pairing for this dip is tortilla chips. Of course, warm flour tortillas would also pair nicely. I like to include a salsa along the side too. Verde or red salsa is a great compliment to the bean dip.

If you want to add the dip to a main course meal, I love to serve it with my Shredded Beef Enchiladas or my Doritos Taco Pie!

What To Do With Leftover Slow Cooker Bean Dip

Unfortunately, you can’t freeze the bean dip after making it. However, it’ll be great in the refrigerator. You can re-heat it in the microwave, serve, and enjoy again. We’ve made burritos with it the next day!

Can You Freeze The Dip?

Unfortunately, bean dip doesn’t freeze well. The dip changes texture a bit during the freezing process. I just make a whole new batch instead of freezing it.

  • Picante Sauce
  • Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
