Individual Seven-Layer Dips

Makes about 8 individual dips
Ingredients:

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans

1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
1 cup guacamole
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1 cup chunky salsa or pico de gallo
1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced
1 (2.25 ounce) can of sliced olives, drained
9 ounce plastic tumblers
tortilla chips
Instructions:

In a small bowl mix taco seasoning with refried beans. Some people prefer to mix their taco seasoning with the sour cream layer but I wanted a bright white layer so I did it with the beans.
Here’s how the layers are assembled:

Layer 1: beans and taco seasoning

Layer 2: sour cream
Layer 3: guacamole
Layer 4: salsa or pico de gallo
Layer 5: cheese
Layer 6: tomatoes
Layer 7: green onions and olives

In each plastic glass, layer about 2 Tablespoons of the beans, followed by 2 Tablespoons of sour cream, 2 Tablespoons of guacamole, 2 Tablespoons of salsa or pico de gallo, and 2 Tablespoons of cheese. Make sure you drain your salsa or pico to get the excess liquid out before you pour it on. Then top with about 1-2 teaspoons of tomatoes, olives, and green onion (If making ahead of time, wait to add these toppings until shortly before serving).

 Rainbow Cake in Jar
  • 1 box white cake mix made according to package instructions
  • Neon food coloring in pink, yellow, green, turquoise, and purple
  • 3 one-pint canning jars
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • Rainbow sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly wash and dry the inside of each canning jar. Spray the inside of each jar thoroughly with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Scoop about 1/2 cups of cake batter into five small bowls. It doesn’t have to be perfect, don’t panic if you get a little more of less of one color than another.  Tint each bowl of cake batter with the food coloring until very vibrant.

Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the purple batter into the bottom of each jar. Spoon equal amounts of turquoise batter, then green, yellow, and pink.  Place the jars in a shallow baking dish, add about 1/4″ in water in the baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Remove jars and allow to cool completely before scooping a small portion from the top of your cake and adding a hefty dollop of vanilla buttercream to the top. Sprinkle & serve, or cover with a lid and store in the fridge or pop into the mail & surprise someone you love!

Yummy!!

Brownie Kebabs

 This recipe is extremely adaptable. Use the brownie recipe of your choice fruits that are in season and taste great with brownies and any other kebab-worthy ingredient you like. I drizzled mine with hot fudge sauce but you could just as easily melt chocolate chips for drizzling, drizzle with  caramel sauce -the options are endless!

  1. This sounds super deoulicis! Have you tried the SCD taco shells to use as a tortilla replacement (the kind that is baked provolone cheese slices). They are so great! Crunchy and tasty! I don’t believe that a person can go wrong with baked cheese. 🙂 Thanks for the fantastic recipe.

  2. I have been meaning to try mkiang taco shells with Provolone but I haven’t yet. Usually I use butter lettuce leaves for tacos (new taco recipe coming this week). I love baked cheese though, so I do want to give the Provolone a try.
