Cheesy Hot Bean Dip Recipe

cbias disclosure#DelimexFiesta #CollectiveBiasCheesy Hot Bean Dip Recipe

As we head into late spring, it seems like the days keep getting busier and busier. While I love all the fun events and activities that are filling the days and weekends, it means less time available to spend in the kitchen. So, it’s super handy to have foods on hand that we can whip up in no time.

Delimex Walmart

Last week I stopped by Walmart to pick up Delimex taquitos and tamales. I find them a convenient thing to have in the freezer for quick meals and especially for impromptu get-togethers. Just heat them up and get the party started!

To add a little bit something special to our next party, I created this super easy Cheesy Hot Bean Dip recipe to serve with Delimex taquitos. The “hot” in the title refers to the temperature, but you’re welcome to use hot salsa to make it hot flavor-wise too! I served the dip with yummy, crunchy Delimex Beef Taquitos, but it would pair well with any of the Delimex taquitos varieties.

Cheesy Hot Bean Dip Recipe

 
Ingredients:
1 16 oz. can refried beans
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
Cilantro for garnish

Directions:

Mix beans, salsa and 1/2 cup of the cheese in a microwave safe container. Top with remaining cheese. Microwave 2-3 minutes, or until heated through. (I divided mine into two smaller bowls and heated one at a time for a shorter period to keep the dip hot for a longer time.) Garnish top with cilantro.

And I can’t forget to mention the Delimex Tamales I picked up. I loved that they were so quick and easy to make and really good too! They turned out perfectly just heating them in the microwave – no steamer needed!

Carrot Raisin Salad Recipe

Carrot Raisin Salad

With spring and summer approaching I think of it as the time of year for salads – not just your green leafy salads, but pasta salads, cole slaw, potato salad – all those things that are perfect for a picnic, a BBQ or a family potluck. This Carrot Raisin Salad Recipe is another one to add to the list. It is packed with carrots, raisin and pineapple and using Greek yogurt instead of the traditional mayonnaise or salad dressing means it is healthy too! If you are a mayo lover, you can use that instead of the yogurt – but give the yogurt a chance and you may find that you start using it in all your recipes calling for mayo or sour cream!

Carrot Raisin Salad Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups coarsely grated carrots
⅔ cup raisins
1 cup crushed pineapple drained
⅓ cup Greek yogurt
1 tbsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt

Carrot Raisin Salad Process

 

Directions

Toss raisins, carrots, and pineapple together lightly; set aside.
Stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, and salt and add to the raisin mixture.
Refrigerate until served.
Best if made in advance and refrigerated at least an hour

Joseph Joseph Fold Flat Space Saving Kitchen Grater

When it comes to grating carrots (or anything else for that matter) I love my Joseph Joseph Fold Flat Space Saving Kitchen Grater. I have the green one. It is a bit on the pricey side for a grater, but it’s well worth it because it folds totally flat for storage. In a small kitchen like mine, I need to conserve all the storage space I can!

Chunky Monkey Whoopie Pies Recipe – Yummy Chocolate Banana Treat!

Chunky Monkey Whoopie Pies Recipe

While a traditional whoopie pie is a classic treat, it’s aways fun to change things up a bit and throw in a few new flavors to come up with something totally new. This Chunky Monkey Whoopie Pies recipe is one of those things! This version combines the chocolatey outside (easy to whip up with chocolate cake mix), filled with a banana cream and finished off with walnuts and chocolate chips on the edges. If you’re not a fan of walnuts, you can switch it up with your favorite type of nuts – or even no nuts at all!

Whoopie Pie Pan

To get the classic whoopee pie shape and pies that are all the same size, you can use a whoopee pie pan. Luckily they aren’t very expensive and you’ll be able to make lots of whoopee pies! (The pan is also good for making muffin tops.) If you don’t have a pan, you can instead spread the dough on parchment paper lined baking sheets in a circle shape.

Spaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe

Disclosure AffiliateSpaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe

 
One of the most classic American meals is spaghetti and garlic bread. I remember as a kid it was the only Italian food I knew, except for maybe pizza. Now that I’m older my appreciation for Italian cuisine has widened quite a bit, but that good old fashioned spaghetti with meat sauce is still a satisfying comfort food.

Spaghetti Garlic Bread Bake

For this Spaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe I decided to take this classic meal and combine both pieces in one easy-to-make casserole. This recipe is definitely one of my hubby’s favorites now and I thoroughly enjoyed it myself!

I used a take-and-bake loaf of italian bread, but you could substitute an already-made loaf, just decrease the baking time a bit at the end.

Spaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe Ingredients

Spaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe

 
Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
14 ounce can diced tomatoes*
8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 3/4 cups water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
8 ounces spaghetti noodles
1 loaf of take-and-bake French or Italian bread
2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Garlic salt

*I used diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and organ for extra flavor

Spaghetti and Garlic Bread Bake Recipe Process

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion. Add in the garlic shortly before browned and continue cooking two minutes. Drain grease if necessary. (I used very lean beef, so this step wasn’t necessary.) Add in diced tomatoes with their juices, tomato sauce, one cup of the water, salt and Italian seasoning. Let simmer for five minutes.

Break the spaghetti in thirds and put in the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish. Pour remaining 3/4 cup water over pasta. Spread the meat mixture over the spaghetti. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes. While it’s baking, slice bread into 1/2″ thick slices.

After 35 minutes, remove from oven and space bread slices across the top of the pan. Return to oven (uncovered) for 10 minutes. (If you’re using fully baked bread you can skip this step.)

Remove from oven again and top with shredded cheese, focusing on the bread slices, but letting some fall on top of pasta. Sprinkle top with garlic salt. Return to oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and just starting to brown.

French Toast Muffin Recipe + 5 Ways to Keep Your Morning Running Smoothly

5 Ways to Keep Your Morning Running Smoothly

Mornings can be hectic. Whether you are running off to work, getting the kids ready for school, or heading to an appointment, those first hours can seem like the time for “rush rush”, rather than for easing into your day with a big breakfast at home and a leisurely cup of coffee. I’m lucky in that I work from home and most days don’t personally have to rush anyplace. BUT, my husband has to get to work by 7:30 am and since I am the helpful sort, I always pitch in to get him out the door on time (or almost on time!)

Whatever your morning agenda is, here are 5 Ways to Keep Your Morning Running Smoothly:

Time Management

Set a Routine
I have read several times that it takes 21 days to form a habit. So, if you have a standard order in which you perform mornings tasks each day, after three weeks it should start to run like clockwork and take some of the stress out of the start to your day. Try to do the same tasks in the same order each morning.

Backpack Schedule

Have Your Bags Ready to Go
Don’t pack your bags last thing in the morning. The night before, go through and take out anything that doesn’t need to be there – like empty lunch containers and school papers. Add in anything that needs to leave the house the next morning – except for refrigerated items, of course!

Frozen Burritos

Make Lunches Ahead of Time
Rather than having to make sandwiches every morning, prepare items you can keep in the fridge or freezer that are ready to pack in morning lunches. Some of my favorites are frozen homemade burritos (if you have a microwave for lunch) or these freezer PB&J sandwiches.

McCafe Coffee Timer

Set Your Coffee on a Timer
Coffee is a morning MUST for my husband. Rather than waiting for a pot to brew in the morning, he sets it up on a timer before he goes to bed. That way it is hot and ready before it’s time to leave for work. This week I picked up McCafé coffee for him at Walmart. They had a couple of varieties to choose from, but I selected the French Roast because he likes his coffee dark. Well, he actually puts tons of cream in it, but he likes to start with it dark.

McCafé coffee

Hubby is pretty picky about his coffee, so I was a bit hesitant about his reaction. But, he liked it!! He found the flavor to be rich and yummy and actually turned to it first to make his coffee the following day. I guess that’s not all that surprising because McCafé coffee is premium quality coffee made with 100% Arabica Beans harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world. It is available in 8 different flavors and both premium bags and coffee pods – so you can get the right one to fit your brewing style.

French Toast Muffin Recipe

Have Easy Breakfasts Ready
Grab and go is the easiest type of breakfast and ESSENTIAL if you don’t have time to eat at home and need to take it on your morning commute. While there are plenty of packaged options available, I always like a homemade breakfast, even if it isn’t eaten at home! This French Toast Muffin Recipe is yummy eaten at room temperature, or heated in the microwave before you head out the door.

French Toast Muffin Recipe

Ingredients:
10 slices of bread
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp maple flavoring (optional)
4 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

French Toast Muffin Recipe Process

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-muffin tin very well.
Tear the bread into small pieces and place in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, mix beaten eggs, milk, salt, vanilla, maple flavoring if using, and 2 Tbsp of the sugar.
Pour wet mixture over the bread and mix thoroughly.
Place a spoonful of the muffin mixture in each cup of the muffin tin.
Sprinkle the tops with a mixture made of the remaining sugar and cinnamon.
Fill the muffin tins with the rest of the muffin mixture.
Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.

So, the next time you feel crazily rushed in the morning, think about incorporating some of these tips and it just might make things a big better. At least you will have a great cup of coffee and some yummy muffins to enjoy!

Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze Recipe

Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze Recipe

One of the things I LOVE about spring is the spring produce and that includes berries! There is nothing like a freshly picked strawberry! It’s fun to take a trip to a pick-your-own strawberry farm, or to a farmer’s market where the berries are still super fresh but someone else has picked them for you.

While I’m happy to have a bowl of fresh strawberries with just some sugar sprinkled on top and maybe a little bit of cream, they are also perfect for turning into delicious recipes. This Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze recipe not only tastes good, but is really pretty too! It’s just the think to make a special menu for a weekend brunch or Mother’s Day.
