Appetizers on the grill have become our favorite for weekend get togethers. Grilled Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms and Jalapeño Poppers with Brisket and Bacon are always a hit with the crowd.

How to Make Ahead:

Bean dip can be made up to two days in advance. Store bean dip in an air tight container or the covered pie plate in the refrigerator until ready to grill.  Best to add shredded cheese just before grilling.

How to Store and Reheat:

Store leftover bean dip covered with aluminum foil or in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days.

Reheat in a 325° oven for 15 -20 minutes or in a non-stick skillet over low heat, stir until heated through.

We like to keep canned pinto beans on hand but we also like to cook up dry pinto beans and cornbread for a filling comfort food meal. The leftover beans will also work in this recipe if you have them.
