Warm Bean Dip and Lemon Brownies

This evening we went to a cookout for the summer intern who will be leaving in the morning to head back to Tennessee.  

I brought:

Lemon Brownies
I love the Pampered Chef individual brownie tin.  I bought it back in April, but this is the first time that I've used it.  They look so uniform and more professional.
Warm Bean Dip
(with tortilla chips)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 cans (16 ounces each) refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded
green onions
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl.  Mix in refried beans until combined.  Stir in taco seasoning.
2.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.  Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish.  Sprinkle the top with both cheeses.
3.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and slightly browned.  Garnish with green onions.
