Ermagerd… yummy food is happening right now. These recipes are not gluten free, they definitely have food dyes, preservatives, dairy, sugar, carbs, and I don’t think anyone would categorize them as health food… but they are quite delicious. 🙂 Everything in moderation, right? Well here are a couple of my favorite party foods and their easy recipies!
Dr. Steve’s Magical 7 Layer Dip
2 9 oz cans Frito’s bean dip (I use the hot version!)
1 12 oz container guacamole (or you could make your own, I’m too lazy)
1 16 oz container sour cream (I used light…health food right?)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (also light, now things are just getting crazy).
2 packets of taco seasoning
olives (blech, but my dad loves them)
Layer 1: Spread both cans of bean dip on the bottom of a glass baking dish. You can use whatever size, but I like the 9×16. Sometimes, I’ll use two smaller dishes.
Layer 2: Guacamole on the beans. (If you’re a fan of guac, you can use two containers. I just go with one, because it’s not my favorite layer).
Layer 3: The best layer. Mix the sour cream, mayo, and taco seasoning. You can adjust the amount of taco seasoning according to taste. I usually go heavier than my dad’s version, I love the spiciness! Layer the mixture on the guac.
Layer 4: A package of shredded cheese. I’ve used everything from sharp cheddar to pepper jack to colby jack. Go with what you like!
Layer 5 & Layer 6: Dice the tomato and green onion. Throw ’em on and spread evenly!
Layer 7… didn’t happen. It’s olives and I think they’re disgusting. So my 7th layer is all the love I put into it… that works right? 🙂
Serve with veggies or tortilla chips! You’ll be addicted to this one, I promise. The taco seasoning mixture is definitely what makes this different from other dips. I could just mix that up and use it as a stand alone dip!
Sweet//Spicy Crockpot Meatballs
16 oz. grape jelly
1 jar of chili sauce
1lb turkey meatballs
1lb ‘lil smokies
a splash of Worcestershire sauce
Tablespoon chili garlic sriracha sauce
1/2 c. grape juice (in my case the mystery jar, it’s homemade grape juice from my grandfathers garden!)
Throw it all in the crockpot, mix it up, and let it stew for a 3 hours on high! They’re the best!
Have a happy Sunday everyone, I know I will with all these yummy treats! 🙂
