Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Layered Mexican Dip

I love this stuff. Just a mouthful of yummy.


  • 1-2 tsp. Homemade Taco Seasoning
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans ( I use organic)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (16 ounce)reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3-4 chopped green onions
  • 1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 2 cups reduced fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • A BIG bag of Tostitos Chips


  1. In a medium bowl, blend the taco seasoning mix and refried beans. Spread the mixture onto a large serving platter or trifle bowl.
  2. Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Spread over the refried beans.
  3. Top the layers with salsa. Place a layer of tomato, green bell pepper, green onions over the salsa, and top with Cheddar cheese. Garnish with black olives.
Note: This recipe is so versatile. You can add cooked hamburger as well. Just go crazy with it. You can't mess it up.
