Cook Time: 15 minutes
Recipe Rating: 4.2 (20 reviews)

Recreate the popular bean dip at home in just minutes with a food processor: Just pour in all the ingredients and fire it up. The best part about this recipe is that we can duplicate the taste of the popular dip without any added fat. If you check out the label of the real thing, you'll see that there's hydrogenated oil in there. We can avoid this saturated fat without sacrificing flavor with a home clone that's a perfect healthy choice for dipping. Bring on the chips!

It was good. But just like many others said---it was just too salty. Easy fix on that! Just leave it out or add only a dash. :-) Next time I am going to try to make it with Black Beans like their black bean variety. Thanks!

I left out the salt, used 16oz can of fat free re-fried beans and added 1 tsp of Cains chili powder. It should be refrigerated overnight for the flavors to meld together. Came out awesome!

This recipe is fantastic! My Hubby was hooked on the Fritos bean dip in the can, but this is way more economical, and he thinks it tastes exactly the same. When you make Todds' recipes, be sure you are using quality fresh spices and such, it makes a huge difference. And also, the corn of the Fritos and the beans make a complete protein, great for a lunch too.

I really like this recipe, but I added some taco seasoning and it made it better...

Made this a second time, this time according to recipe. It is almost dead on with the real thing. I would cut down on the salt because the peppers, liquid, and beans already have enough added salt. After that, it is just a matter of tweaking the spices to get the tast right.

Amazing, this is the first recipe that tastes exactly like the product! i did use refried beans, they seemed easier and were available.

Very good and fast. No need for refried (fatty) beans with this recipe. I never tasted the real thing but this is a keeper on it's own!

Very close to the real stuff but a bit too salty. My son has never had the dip and hates beans but won't stop eating it.

This did not taste like the real thing at all. Instead of using pinto beans use refried pinto beans. Much better that way!

I have not tasted the "real" frito dip, but this is a really good bean dip! Super addicting. First I had it with mini carrots, then spread on a tortilla. Another time on my fried egg sandwich. Much easier than hummus!

This dip is great! It may not taste exactly like fritos but we like it better, though it may be a bit salty for some. I like to add fresh jalapenos for extra heat and a little lime juice mixed in works well also. I real winner!

I make this every week now and we love it! We do add more peppers and juice to hot it up, but our 2 yr old granddaughter loves it just like this.

I thought it tasted almost exactly like the frito dip. I think the key to the recipe is letting it chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Also I use Bush's pinto beans.

I agree with Dana... this tastes just like it and is wondeful!

Yummy! I like it very much! I will try refried beans next time.

Everything I have tried of Todd's is outstanding so far, however I totally agree with Michelle. Made this yesterday and it does not taste like the real thing. I did not like it at all.

I never ate the Fritos dip, but I know that this is good. I often add more jalapeno slices or juice to make it hotter. It is also good spread on corn tortillas before you add the taco fillings.

I don't know what Michelle was eating because this is almost exactly like the frito dip
