These little Mexican bites are full of flavor. No cooking required. Yes!

Just layer black beans, salsa, the cream cheese mixture, and green onions into scoop tortilla chips! Pretty easy. They come together quickly too if you recruit some extra hands to help you assemble them. Be prepared that they might disappear even more quickly than it took to make them though.

For the best flavor, choose a salsa that you like. I used Pace Chunky Mild Salsa and we love the Tostitos Multigrain Scoops. The cream cheese mixture is the real kicker though. A perfect combination of seasonings, creaminess, and flavor. It is a big part of what makes these Mexican bites so yummy.

I brought these to a party and they were a hit. But I should’ve doubled the amount! They were gone in a snap and with rave reviews.


Recipe adapted slightly from America’s Test Kitchen Quick Family Cookbook.

The serving platter that I used is about 16 inches by 11.5 inches, just to give you an idea. Every so often, especially around the holidays, Costco has some great deals on serving platters and things like that. Here are some serving platters on Amazon.

  1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, oregano, and chili powder. Place scoops on a serving platter and fill with the beans, distributing evenly. Then add the salsa and top with a small dollop of the cream cheese mixture. Evenly sprinkle the green onions over the tops. Serve.
