Super Bowl Appetizer: Six Layer Mexican Guacamole Dip

Party Appetizer: Six Layer Taco Guacamole Dip

Six Layer Mexican Guacamole Dip With Super Bowl coming up, I thought I would share this awesome six layer Mexican dip, which not only looks great but is very tasty as well! Served with tortilla chips, it is a perfect appetizer for any gathering, whether it’s for a party, game night, or for a bigger event such as Super Bowl. With taco seasoning mixed into the refried beans on the bottom layer, then guacamole, sour cream, salsa, and cheese topped with green onions, this dip delivers mixed flavors that complement each other. One recipe will often serve a crowd of 20 people or more during an event when several other dishes are offered as well. If you are expecting as many as 40-50 people, I would double to make two bowls. If you do try this recipe, I would really appreciate a quick comment with a star rating (option found immediately under each recipe). It helps me out tremendously! Thanks in advance! In addition to some spices and lemon juice for the guacamole, these are the ingredients needed: Taco seasoning mix, avocados, sour cream, salsa, refried beans, cheese, and scallions (which is the same as green onions.) This recipe can easily be made gluten free by choosing certified gluten free ingredients. However, the ingredients needed for this recipe are often free from gluten naturally, though they can sometimes contain traces if not certified gluten free. The Layers: I like to […] Read more »

Making a Tracing Light Box in Seconds, Using Flashlight

DIY Tracing Light Box, Using Flash Light

Seeing my son being tempted to put a sheet of paper onto a flat-screen computer monitor to trace a picture, I felt inspired to make him a tracing light box instead. I explained to him that the monitor surface would scratch if he used it to trace, and tracing is what he wanted to do. Remembering a pin on Pinterest, I decided to make a light box by using what we already had on hand, and I came up with this simple solution: A tracing box made from a clear bin and a flashlight! In a matter of seconds I simply put a flashlight standing inside a clear plastic container, and the light shining through made the picture visible through the sheet of paper placed on top. When looking at my bins, I found that most of them had edges or ridges on the bottom that would make tracing difficult. But I also found that using the sides of a medium sized plastic container worked perfectly! Instead of tracking down a light bulb on a cord to make one like the pin on pinterest suggested, I just stuck a flashlight inside. A shorter flashlight that spreads the light out more evenly across the box would probably have improved the light box, but using what we had took seconds and worked quite well. My son did move the flashlight around a little bit to better light up the areas he was […] Read more »
