Andrea’s Mexican bean dip

1/2 can (8 oz.) refried beans
1/2 pkg (4 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 jar (about 8 oz.) salsa
4 oz. shredded Monterey jack cheese
Tortilla chips

In a glass pie dish, cover the bottom with refried beans. Next, add an even layer of cream cheese, then an even layer of salsa.  Finally, sprinkle the top with shredded cheese.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. You can also cook in the microwave instead for about 5 minutes (depending on your microwave), or until the cheese is melted.
Enjoy with tortilla chips!

Diane’s Stuffed Pepper Footballs

1 tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

1 lb ground beef or turkey

1 lb mini peppers

1 cup (or small can) low sodium sloppy joe sauce

1 oz (or pouch) low sodium taco seasoning

1 cup (or 1 bag) shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese

1 cup taco sauce

1 cup sour cream


1 can of beans


Pico de Gallo

Whatever else you like to put on tacos

  1. Put a frying pan on medium heat and add the olive oil and diced onion.
  2. Cut the peppers in half, removing seeds and ribs but leaving the stems. Take breaks to stir the onions as you go.

*If any peppers are shaped in a way that would make them hard to stuff, or you have too many, you can dice them up and add to the onions.

  1. Once the onion is softened, stir in ground meat, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks
  2. Once meat is browned add, sloppy joe sauce and taco seasoning. If you opt to add beans stir them in as well.
  3. Stuff the peppers with the meat filling and top with cheese
  4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
  5. Top with Taco Sauce & sour cream to create football design
  6. Serve with guacamole and pico de gallo on the side if you’d like
