chef #47: slow cooker chipotle-black bean dip

i accidently signed myself up to receive emails from betty crocker and spent a good hour the other day browsing recipes on their website. some are only available to members (it's free to sign up), but many are easily accessible to the general public. i found this recipe for a slow cooker dip and tried it out on sunday night:

1 can refried beans
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can (11 oz) mexicorn (corn + red & green peppers), drained
1 c thick salsa
4 T diced green peppers + sauce (found a 7 oz can in the hispanic food section of the grocery store)
1.5 c mexican blend shredded cheese
4 medium green onions, chopped
tortilla chips

mix beans, corn, salsa, peppers, and 1 c cheese together in a crock pot. heat on low for 4 hours, stirring after 2. just before serving, stir in green onions and remaining cheese. top with additional cheese & onions, if desired. serve with tortilla chips!

i found this recipe to be a bit bland. i couldn't find the peppers that the original recipe called for, so perhaps they would have added some flavor. when i make it again i plan to add some chili powder and cumin or taco seasoning.
