This Party Bean Dip is a nice, lighter option for a dip. It’s always a big hit at Happy Hour or an appetizer party!
I am so excited about this dip because it’s one that you will want to keep eating and eating and then come back for more! Remember the classic 7-Layer Mexican Dip? This is similar, but this party bean dip has fewer layers, and it’s baked instead of being served cold.
How to make Homemade Tortilla Chips:

Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges, and arrange the wedges in single layers on 2 baking sheets. Lightly spray the wedges with cooking spray; sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350°F. for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Cool.
