Two similar but easy Mexican recipes I am sharing...

     I like easy recipes that don't heat up the kitchen alot in the summer time and hubby likes mexican and so these two recipes are similar but both are so easy to cook.  

Recipe #1
Layered Turkey & Bean Dip

1 can (16 oz) Old El Paso® refried beans
1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles
1 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa (any variety)
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups shredded Cheddar or Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
1 medium tomato, diced (3/4 cup)
1 pound of turkey (or ground beef ) cooked, drained and then add taco seasoning
Tortilla chips
    * In medium bowl, mix refried beans and taco seasoning mix. Spread mixture on large platter.
    * Layer your meat over beans
    * In another medium bowl, mix cream cheese and chiles. Carefully spread over  meat layer.
    * Top with salsa, lettuce, cheese, and tomato. Serve with tortilla chips.

Recipe #2
Double Cheese, Chicken and Bean Nachos
It's hard to resist a platter of crunchy, gooey nachos, especially this jalapeño-studded version loaded with cheese.
4 cups small round corn tortilla chips
1 cup Old El Paso® refried beans (from 16-oz can)
½ cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa
2 tablespoons Old El Paso® pickled jalapeño slices, drained, chopped (from 12-oz jar)
½ cup chopped green onions (8 medium)
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
1 cup cooked and diced chicken breast
    * Heat oven to 400°F. Line 12-inch pizza pan or 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray.      
    *Spread half of chips evenly on pan.
    * In small bowl, mix refried beans and salsa. Drop about half of mixture by small spoonfuls over chips.
    * Then drop chicken over that
    *Top with half each of jalapeño slices, onions and cheese. Repeat layers ending with cheese.
    * Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
God bless,

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
