I used 1 lb of 92% Laura’s Lean Ground Beef to make this delicious Beef and Bean Enchilada Dip. Laura's Lean is my go-to beef whenever a dish calls for ground beef. Why? Because when I am using a quality beef like Laura’s Lean, my family can taste the difference.
So what exactly makes Laura’s Lean different from other “natural” beef? Laura's Lean is a “Never Ever” offering, so the protein is sourced from suppliers that raise their cattle vegetarian fed without ever using added hormones or antibiotics. You have choices and when you choose Laura’s Lean, you’re a choice that balances taste and nutrition.
One of the reasons I feel good serving Laura’s Lean 96% Ground Beef is because it is certified through the American Heart Association heart check program and meets USDA standards for “Extra Lean”. Laura’s Lean claim must meet strict USDA standards to qualify as lean.
How to make enchilada dip
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil.
Add minced garlic and diced onions to hot oil in pan and heat for a few minutes until the onions are translucent.
Add Laura's Lean Ground Beef and cook until browned under medium-high heat, making the beef into crumbles.
Drain meat. You will notice that there is hardly any draining that needs to be done since you are starting with a premium beef like Laura's Lean. Each 4oz serving of Laura’s Lean contains less than 10g of fat, 4.5g or less of saturated fat and less than 95mg of cholesterol per 100g serving.
Now it is time to add the enchilada sauce and taco seasoning.
Add corn and diced green chilies.
Next, add refried beans. Mix until the refried beans have been incorporated into the beef mixture.
Finally, add the black beans. I save these for last because they are more delicate and will break apart with a lot of stirring. Gently fold in the black beans and cook through.
Pour beef mixture into a casserole dish.
Top with shredded cheese.
Now this beef and bean enchilada dip is ready to go into the oven.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. After removing from oven, garnish with chopped green onion.
The green onion adds a lovely burst of color to this dish.
The flavors in this dip work so well together, but the real star of this dip is Laura's Lean Ground Beef. Laura’s Lean 92% ground beef, 96% ground beef and 92% beef patties are sold at retail stores nationwide.
