It’s been a while since I have blogged any recipes. I started a new job last year in May, which required a lot of travel in the first year…so I slacked. However, things have really settled out well now – and I’m home a lot more and back in the kitchen! This time with cool tools.
I ate out a lot for a year due to being on high travel and you know what that means…yep. We don’t need to say it. I’m back on WW Blue Plan, so for anyone also on WW tracking points I will post the blue points and if you are on one of the other plans you can easily enter the ingredients into your WW app in the recipe function and see what yours are!
I shopped all of these ingredients online at Aldis…and if you had to completely start from scratch (meaning you don’t have basic spices at home etc) it would cost about $15 or broken down only $1.25 per person. Makes a cheap and easy snack to feed a crowd, or to snack on with the family during these hot days.
- Guacamole Layer
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2 ripe avocados, pitted
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Remaining Layers
- 1 1/2 cans fat free refried beans
- 3/4 cups fat free sour cream
- 1 tbsp taco seasoning
- 1 1/2 cups think and chunky salsa
- 6 oz reduced fat graded cheddar
- 3 plum tomatoes
- 1 cup sliced black olives
Let’s Do This!
- Combine the guacamole ingredients in the manual food processor until smooth.
- Spread the beans on the bottom of the rectangular cool & serve. Spread the guacamole over the beans.
- Combine the sour cream and taco seasoning in a small bowl. Spread over the guacamole. Add the remaining ingredients in the order listed.
I attached the links to the tools I used (bold above), it will take you directly to my PC page so you can order directly (if you are interested).
Product details from what I use in case you are wondering:
This is something honestly super useful. The Rectangular Cool & Serve is 9″ x 13″ (23-cm x 33-cm) It includes two chilling pucks that will keep your food cool for 4–6 hours and is fridge-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe. The spill-resistant lid is great for taking food on the go and nests under the base, so serving is easy. I love it!
The Manual Food Processor can take care of nearly all chopping and mincing u need, without needing an outlet. Just add your ingredients to the bowl and pump the handle for fast salsa, dip, cookie dough, baby food, tapenade. The more you pump, the finer it cuts! And when you’re done, the handle locks into the lid for easy storage in your cabinets. I use it more than my electric food processor. Just easier to use and clean all around.
Random story – I have used Pampered Chef for probably 15 years. I’ve always just ordered direct from the website, rarely going to parties etc. I went to their page recently to order a new air fryer and decided to just become a consultant for good discounts etc. I figured why not? Might as well feature what I use in my blog since they are all items I use daily and love. PS don’t worry, I won’t be hounding anyone for sales (I know that’s annoying). I’ll just be attaching links to stuff I really like. 🙂🙂🙂. I’ll still be posting my usual inexpensive, healthy meals 🥰
