New adventure….less available time right now

So…some of you may have noticed I have been missing in action 😉 I have recently started a new job and will be training out-of-town for the next several weeks.

I will return with new recipes and ideas to share from my adventures. I have met some really wonderful people so far, and hope that I can share some of this experience with everyone once I return home and settle in.

  1. Cool beans on the new job. I have a great job that can’t be beat. It’s called retirement. Never been so busy.

    Here is a good recipe for bean dip:

    3 Cans Refried Beans
    1 Can Pinto Beans
    1 Can Black Beans
    1 Can Rotel Original
    1 Can Mild Green Chiles
    1 Bottle Sliced Jalapenos
    4 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    1/2 Cup La Sabrozita Tomatillo Sauce (you can buy this stuff on Amazon or in some Walmarts or even

    Open all the above and leave 1 can of refried beans, 1 cup of cheese, and the bottle of sliced jalapenos to the side, do not mix these two items in with everything else.

    Place all but the two above items in a large pot and stir them together. Place the pot on a stove burner which is in high heat. Begin stirring all the ingredients constantly. You will stir continually for about 5-10 minutes. As you stir, the cheese will begin to melt and the mixture will begin to bubble. Make sure you keep stirring so that nothing burns to the pan.

    Once the mixture is creamy, remove the pan from the heat and then put about 4-6 cups of the mixture in a container. This would be considered the “mild” flavored bean dip.

    Add the last can of refried beans, last cup of cheese, and the entire bottle of sliced jalapenos AND the liquid from the bottle to the mixture. Place back on high heat and continue stirring until the cheese has melted and the entire mixture is creamy.

    Remove from heat and then put the bean dip mixture into a large container or two. This would be considered the “spicy” bean dip. (This is the best of the two dips for sure!)

    Let the mixture cool somewhat so it isn’t so creamy. You can serve the dip(s) hot or cold, depending on the tastes of those eating the dip.

    Dip is best served with corn chips, Fritos, potato chips, or can be used with other ingredients in burritos, tacos, etc.

    Lastly, I pretty much made this up over the years and finally wrote it down. It’s pretty darn easy to change various amounts/ingredients until you have what you like best. I’ve tried adding sour cream, velveeta cheese, and all sorts of difference “hot” stuff. Just remember to open the windows after 2-3 people have eaten a lot of this stuff. Regardless of the outcome, it’s tasty.


  2. Just because… I thought I would tell you I’m still checking your blog. Let’s get with the program and give us the latest scoop.
