Hot Refried Bean Dip

1 1/3 cup dried refried beans
1 cup boiling water
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon dry taco seasoning mix
4 tablespoons bottled taco sauce
1/2 lb. cooked hamburger (optional)
tortilla chips

Reconstitute dried refried beans by stirring them into boiling water. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Combine all ingredients (except chips) in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook 30 minutes or until ready to serve, up to several hours. (Or, if you are in a hurry, cook in microwave, stirring frequently, until heated through.) Serve with tortilla chips.

Testing comment: Great recipe. Fast and easy and the family loved it. We added a little extra water because it was so thick. You can add extra taco sauce instead if you want it spicier.
