Creating a new dish out of leftovers is one of my favorite things to do.  We had Pork Chalupa's (See: Chalupas de Puerco) for dinner so this was an easy throw together.  I really enjoyed this.  It had a different flavor with the pork blended right in with the beans, peppers, tomatoes and even a leftover avocado.  I topped it off with a little shredded cheese and a sprinkle of cilantro.  Add what makes the dish special to you.  It'll make the dip so much better.

2 1/2 cups refried beans
1 1/2 cups shredded pulled pork
1/2 large avocado
1 small jalapeno chili chopped
2 small romo tomatoes
2 TBS minced garlic
2 TBS minced onion
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1 cup fiesta blend cheese shredded
1 TBS cilantro

Slightly heat the beans and meat in a pan together first so they will blend easier and smoother.  Do not over heat though. Place mixture in a blinder or food processor and mix on high until creamy smooth.  Toss in avocado, chili, tomatoes, garlic and onion.  Sprinkle in a dash of salt and pepper to taste.  Leave on high for several minutes until no lumps are visible.  Place in a microwave safe bowl and top with shredded cheese.  Microwave on high for one minute until melted.  Remove and top with cilantro.  Serve with these Baked Pita Chips
