Layered Bean Dip

If you are on a last minute hunt for party food, let me introduce you to this tasty Layered Bean Dip from Katie's Nesting Spot. It comes together in less than 10 minutes, 5 if you are really scootin' along. Spices are added to refried beans then you layer on sour cream and the toppings of your choice. It is easy, delicious and a crowd pleaser.

I would like to also say that as I was taking these pictures my 3 year old was taking off her tennis shoe and instead of removing it like normal, she flung that sucker across the room and it landed right in this bean dip.

I looked up at her from the camera and said, "Really? REALLY?" She looked a little concerned at first but then she laughed. Kids!

Layered Bean Dip
Makes several servings

1 can refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning, using about 2 Tbsp. of seasoning from it
sour cream
freshly shredded cheddar
diced tomatoes
sliced green onions
sliced black olives

1. In a bowl combine the refried beans and taco seasoning. Stir well until combined. Spread onto a large serving dish or pie plate.

2. Stir up the sour cream to loosen it up. Spread over refried beans. Top with shredded cheddar.

3. Add remaining ingredients and serve with tortilla chips.

  1. Yummy! I have a recipe for a 7 layer dip that is very similar. The difference is you mix the taco seasoning into the sour cream,and add a layer of salsa and guacamole.
    If a shoe had landed in the bean dip at our house, I have a feeling it would not have ended on such a pleasant note, ha ha...

  2. Yum! This looks delicious, and something I know my family would love.

  3. I am so pleased you tried the bean dip! Thanks for sharing it on your blog :) It was so fun to come over to get some links for a post I'm working on about recipes I made from Jam Hands and to see this pop up!

  4. I hear shoes add more fiber to the dish! Looks yummy!

  5. You're kidding! I would have flipped. And then licked the shoe off and eaten the portion that the shoe touched and brought it to the party with a big hole missing. LOL! I loved layered dip. I like to put a layer of guacamole on there too, and olives to make it seven layers. This one is easier, though, b/c no mashing avocadoes!

  6. The recipe sounds delicious, and the picture makes it look yummy!
    And even though her shoe landed in the dip, that did sound humorous!!

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.

A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.

Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.

I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!
