Snacking at Its Best- Warm and Gooey Bean Dip!

Dark and windy afternoons mean snacking and not just a bag of chips.  It means snacking at its best...a warm and gooey bean dip!  My past experience with bean dip was the can that sits next to the chips at the grocery store.  It wasn't the best of experiences so bean dip was never on my radar, until my son-in-law claimed that this bean dip was worth making.  There was an echo from my daughter, "It was amazing, Mom."  So, why not?  It was the type of afternoon made for snacking.
