RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Last week, y’all voted for that cheesy, layered pasta, BUT due to the Anti-Monitor’s antics our example for you has, literally, gone up in smoke. However, we will NOT be defeated so easily as back-up is always to be found! So, I present to you both the recipe for our “Gone in a Flash” lasagna (in the comments) AND our (In)finite Layer Dip!

Here’s this week’s example recipe:

(In)finite Layer Dip

Serves about 20.

Ingredients

  • 1 can 15 oz refried beans with jalapenos
  • 1 can 10 ½ oz bean dip with jalapenos

  • Onion salt to taste
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • 8 green onions
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 to 3 fresh tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning mix
  • 6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 oz shredded monterey jack cheese
  • Tortilla chips

Preparation

  • Mix together refried beans and bean dip.
  • In a large glass container (about 1-1 ½ inches tall, make sure you can dip a chip and get all the layers!), spread bean mixture to the sides, approximately 1 ½ inch thick.
  • Mash the avocados, season to taste with garlic salt, onion salt, and Tabasco.
  • Spread avocado mixture over first layer.
  • Dice tomatoes and cover second layer.
  • Chop green onions and cover tomatoes.
