Ruthann’s Beefy Bean Dip

This is an appetizer that the guys love. You may get them to take you to a party if they know this will be served. I usually triple the recipe.

Original recipe makes 1 quart


2 (19 ounce) cans canned kidney beans, drained
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans

1 pound lean ground beef
1 (4 ounce) can canned jalapeno pepper
1/2 cup hot sauce
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
