Texas Trash

Melissa Snow Recipe

By Melissa Snow riley123

A friend of mine shared this recipe on pintrest. I tweaked the recipe just a little to my liking. It's one of the best ooey, gooey, cheesy bean dips I've had in a long time!

    This looks yummy Melissa. I always thought Texas trash was a recipe for a
    Chex cereal mix. I have to try your recipe. Thanks

    Hi all,

    @Connie-you are right. There is a Chex cereal mix called Texas trash. I'm not sure exactly why this dip is called that. I got this recipe from a friend of mine on Pintrest who got the recipe from another lady and so and so forth.

    @Vernell-your additions sound really good. I'm thinking about adding a can of diced chilies to it the next time I make it.
