How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine beans; spread in an 8-inch square baking dish. Spread sour cream over beans; top with salsa and cheese. Cover; bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
Note: To make pita chips, cut 5 (6-inch) onion-flavored or regular pitas into 8 wedges each. Arrange on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat tops of wedges with cooking spray, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake at 375º for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
I make this all the time especially when my kids had get togethers etc. with their friends. It is great, easy and not too fatty, greasy etc. I have been making it for years and my daughters still ask for it. This recipe is a keeper. I don't always make the ita chips as Tostitos scoopers etc. are fine for this recipe.
