Isn’t it fun when you leave your comfort zone of your home, town, family circle even state and find something new. We recently went to my husband’s niece’s wedding. We haven’t really seen her since she was a young teenager so we were not familiar with her tastes or interests. At the luncheon they served a “Corn Salad” something I had never tasted let alone ever heard of. It was very good. But as usual John and I had to come home and do our own thing to it. So here it is “Fresh Corn Salad”.
Every week my husband and I feed our two bachelor sons Sunday dinner. I feel that it is important that they have at least one healthy meal a week and it gives us the opportunity to keep up with what’s going on in their lives. The challenge in this weekly endeavor however, is having a variety of meals. Chicken again or beef? No we had that last week. How about…? No, Robert won’t eat that. John suggested that Fajitas would be good and I agreed. This called for corn chips and salsa…no we always do that. So in comes the “Guacamole Layer Dip”.
There are probably dozens of recipes out there but we like to make our own Guacamole to go in it.
Start with 1 15 oz can of re-fried beans layered in the bottom of a 9″ baking dish. Sprinkle with 1-2 tbsp taco seasoning. Spread 1 recipe guacamole over beans.
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup tomato salsa (optional)
Cut avocados in half, remove pit and scoop flesh into a gallon size resealable bag. Add lime juice and tomato salsa. Mash and mix by squeezing the bag, leaving lumpy. Add salt to taste.
When mixed squeeze away from 1 corner and cut about 1-1 1/2 inches off and empty the bag into baking dish and spread evenly.
Top with 1 cup sour cream.
Now comes the fun part that isn’t pictured, it depends on who is eating. At this point you can sprinkle on just about anything you want; diced tomatoes, fresh salsa, sliced olives, jalapenos or bacon bits just to mention a few. Then top with finely grated cheddar cheese. Cover with clear plastic wrap and refrigerate until served.
It is great before and during dinner and for a snack later or even for the next day or two. It is just one of those sort of recipes that you can just have fun with.
