I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We headed up to Albany to spend the weekend with our friends from college. It was a fun couple of days but I am exhausted. For those of you who don’t know, my husband wrestled in college and through that experience he made friends that he will have for life. They have luckily accepted me into this clan and I look forward to spending time with them as much as possible. It’s a small family and it’s truly special that we have all stayed in touch over the years.
There was a total of 10 adults and 2 kids, so the hosts asked us to bring some items to chip in. We were more than happy to help. We ended up bring a TON of organic ground beef for burgers and I also made a delicious no fuss Black Bean & Guacamole dip that was devoured within a couple of hours. I actually didn’t even have to cook anything and it took a total of 10 minutes. Winning.
1 can of organic refried black beans with jalapeno
1 container of spicy guacamole (you can make your own and I encourage it, but we were short on time)
1 cup of plain greek yogurt (or sour cream)
1 container of fresh pico de gallo
Shredded pepper jack.
1 bag of tortilla chips
Simply layer each ingredient in a bowl and top with cheese. You can change the order but mine was: black beans, guacamole, Greek yogurt, pico de gallo, and shredded pepper jack cheese. Yum. Serve with some fresh or store bought corn tortilla chips. I promise you that people will love this.
This is not very innovative but it’s fresh and delicious and perfect to bring to a friend’s house for a party. If you have extra time, you could even brown up some ground beef and taco seasoning and use that as an additional layer.
I hope you all were surrounded by as much love and fun as we were this weekend. We are truly rich.
