2. Layered Taco Dip

Try this delicious layered dip at your next party!

From, "Traditions...A Taste of the Good Life" published by The Junior League of Little Rock, Inc. in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


1 (15 ounce) can refried beans
3 ripe avocados
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 (1-1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onions (tops and bottoms), chopped
1 (8 ounce) package Cheddar cheese, grated
1 (4-1/4 ounce) can chopped black olives, drained
  Picante sauce (Optional)
  Jalapeno peppers (Optional)
  Tortilla chips

Spread refried beans on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pyrex dish and set aside.  Mash avocados.  Mix with lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  (You may use a 16 ounce container Calavo avocado dip instead of avocado mixture.)  In another bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise and taco seasoning mix.  Spread avocado mixture over refried beans.  Spread the sour cream mixture over the avocado mixture.  Sprinkle with tomatoes, onions, cheese and olives, making each a separate layer.  You should have 7 layers when completed.  Serve cold with tortilla chips.  Picante sauce may be spooned over the tomato layer, if desired, and jalapeno peppers may be added to the top.
NOTE:  For a special occasion, make a crust of 1-1/2 to 2 cups corn
              chips and 1/4 cup melted butter.  Place in bottom and sides of
              springform pan and bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
              Layer the taco dip ingredients in the pan.  Refrigerate for
              several hours and unmold at serving time.
3. Lazy Lasagna

Try this quick lasagna recipe for dinner!

From, "Houston Junior League Cookbook" published by The Junior League of Houston in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


2 pounds ground round steak
1 teaspoon salt
1 envelope Lawry's spaghetti sauce mix
2 cans (1 pound each) tomatoes
1 can (15 ounce) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon basil
  Grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (8 ounce) lasagna noodles
2 packages (6 ounce each) sliced Mozzarella cheese
In Dutch oven or large saucepan, brown meat in salt.  Add spaghetti sauce mix, tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.  Simmer 30 minutes.  Cook lasagna noodles just until tender.  In 9x11-inch casserole, layer meat sauce, noodles, and Mozzarella cheese. 

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Repeat layers, saving enough meat sauce to pour over top layer.  Bake in 300-325 degree oven for 20 minutes.  This is a simplified version of lasagna, yet has an authentic taste; better by far if made the day before or at least early in the morning, and then baked just before
