Wanda gave me this recipe when Wes and I got married. It is so good, and always is a hit at parties!!

I am making this one for a cookout on Friday:


1 package taco seasoning mix
1 can refried bean dip
1 container sour cream
1 large tomato, chopped
1 bunch chopped green onions
1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1/2 package shredded Cheddar cheese

Spread the beans on your serving platter.
In a bowl mix the taco seasoning mix and sour cream.
Spread evenly on top of the bean dip.
Top with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and green onions.

Serve with Doritoes!! We like the original Doritoes best with this dip....

**This dip can be made up the night before too!!

**If you cannot find refried bean dip, you can use a can of refried beans too, the seasoned ones are pretty much the same as the can of dip....


While in Wally World the other day, we came across some expensive brownie was called Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies. I could just not bring myself to spend 5.00 on a packaged mix, and I said, we could totally make it ourselves!! Elaine ran off to find a tube of cookie dough, and I got the plain brownie mix that was on sale.


1 package brownie mix---prepare according to directions. (Elaine chose the cake like recipe)
1 package refrigerated cookie dough.

Break open and spoon out small "pinches" of the cookie dough. Sprinkle over the top of the brownie batter in the baking dish. Stick in a knife and snake it through the mixture. This will coat the cookie pieces with brownie mix and prevent them from getting too brown on top.

Bake according to brownie box...test with clean knife in the and eat!!!

This pan of brownies lasted about 3 hours.

*the best part is, you only use 1/2 tube of cookie dough...that is enough to make 2 pans of brownies!!
