Layered Mexican Dip
I associate this recipe with summertime, but when my friend Anita brought it to a Thanksgiving leftovers bash, the guests descended upon it like locusts. You can make it as rich and creamy or virtuous as you like. I make this in a glass Pyrex pie dish, it’s not ugly because you are going to wrap it in a pretty napkin and then place it in a shallow basket!
1 can refried beans (I use the vegetarian kind)
2-3 very ripe avocadoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
It’s party season! Chances are, you are going to a bunch and may be having one or two or your own. But this is the time of year when we are already spending a good bit of money on gifts and travel so throwing a holiday party could put some additional strain on your wallet. This is also the time when we are faced with rich eggnog, frosted holiday cookies, massive cheese platters, and adult beverages at all times of the day, putting a strain on your waistline, too.
