Texas Trash Dip: Your New Favorite Dip

Welcome to paradise in a dip. Texas Trash Dip!

It’s a refried beany, creamy, cheesy, taco-y amazing mixture.
It is now my go-to dip for any and all social functions. I brought it to my scrapbook club and they loved it!

This is what it looks like before it’s popped in the oven with cheese on top


I found this amazing recipe here

Warm Bean Dip AKA Texas Trash Dip (from above website)
Recipe adapted from: allrecipes.com
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 cans (16 ounces, each) refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded
DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl. Mix in refried beans until combined. Stir in taco seasoning. (I put this in my food processor to make it easier on myself)
Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray. Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the top with both cheeses. (I only did the top and it was still delicious)
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese in melted and slightly browned. Serve with tortilla chips.
** I also made the dip and ate it cold, without melting the cheese or popping it the oven. It was still amazing! I love versatile party treats!

Game Day Food in a Pouch

This is the perfect game day food because each pouch is one serving!  Serve them up on a plate and let your friends dig in.

They are divine. You must try them.

First, I cooked about a half pound of sausage and let it cool

 Then I mixed together a half jar of pizza sauce, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, chopped up chives from my garden, salt, pepper and lots o’ cheese. I’m a cheese freak so I added a lot. This part is really up to you.

I used several kinds of cheese because that’s how I roll.

It’s mozzarella (duh), parmesan, and mexican blend.

 Doesn’t that look appetizing?

 I used cheap store-bought biscuits.

I smooshed (yes, it’s a word, geez) together two biscuits and then smashed it out to make a mini pizza-sized portion

Then put a healthy dollop of the mixture in the middle

Press all 4 sides together

 And that’s my version of a calzone

Now, bake according to the biscuit directions

 When you take them out of the oven, paint on a butter/garlic mixture and sprinkle with salt.

You won’t regret it.

The next step is the best.


These pocket-sized pouches are seriously amazing.
