    Default Request for Don Pablo's Prairie fire Bean Dip

    My family loves this stuff and we're not big fans of beans.
    I don't know what Don Pablo's puts in it to make it so special. I've tried to recreate this dish using different bean dip recipes. All were very heavy and didn't taste right. Way to beanie if that any sense.
    Thank you

    I found this -

    One of the signature appetizers at Don Pablo's Mexican Kitchen, a concoction of refried beans, cheese, onions, and chile peppers. Not bad if you're a fan of national chain Tex-Mex food, although I've noticed that at least at my local restaurant, the quality (in particular, the greasiness) fluctuates noticeably from visit to visit.

    This recipe isn't an exact imitation, but it comes close, and at least in my opinion tastes better.

    Ingredients:

    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    1 15-ounce can refried beans
    2 tablespoons plain yogurt
    1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
    2 chipotle chiles, finely chopped1
    1 tablespoon adobo sauce from the chiles
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    Dash salt
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes or until soft but not brown.

    Place beans in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until slightly warm and spreadable. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes or until hot. Stir well before serving. Serve with chips, or with soft flour tortillas cut into quarters.

    To get closer to the restaurant version, substitute 2 3-ounce cans of mild chopped green chiles and omit the adobo sauce. I prefer chipotles, though.

    Thank you so much Bean for the recipe. Don Pablos is about an hour away from me and the dip is only thing I really enjoy. The restaurant add way to much cilantro for me.
    I haven't tried a dip recipe with yogurt or chipotles in it. I'll be making this very soon,because I already have the nice thick tortillas to go with it.
