16-ounce can refried beans

1 teaspoon ground cumin

¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

2 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped

1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco or grated mozzarella

2 tablespoons sliced black olives

2 tablespoons sliced scallion tops

Cilantro leaves

  1. In a large bowl, mix the refried beans, cumin and cayenne pepper.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the sour cream, chipotle chili and adobo sauce.

  3. Pour the lime juice over the chicken and toss to cover.

  4. Layer into 8 individual serving dishes or an 8 x 8 baking pan the following, in this order: bean mixture, chopped lettuce, sour cream mixture, guacamole, chicken, salsa, queso fresco/mozzarella.

Easy Cheesy Onion Pull-Apart Bread

1 loaf sourdough bread

8 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese

8 ounces sliced Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup green onion, finely diced

1 tablespoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons poppy seed

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Put the butter, green onion, poppy seeds and garlic powder in a sauce pan.  Heat over medium-low heat until the butter melts. Stir to combine the ingredients and turn off the heat.

  3. Use a bread knife or serrated knife to make parallel slices about 1 inch apart in the bread loaf, from the top to about 1 inch from the bottom. Turn the bread a quarter turn and repeat to create a hatch pattern.

  4. Stuff folded cheese slices between the cuts in the bread.

  5. Place the bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle the butter mixture over the bread.  Spread out any clumps of green onions.

  6. Wrap the bread loosely in the foil and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.

  7. Unwrap the bread and bake another 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Mango Tomato Bruschetta

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 green onions, diced

2 mangoes, diced

1 jalapeno, seeded and diced

2 limes, juiced

3 tablespoons cilantro, snipped

Fresh cracked black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut the French baguette into slices, about ½- to 1-inch thick.

Spread the slices evenly on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until toasted.

In a large bowl, mix the diced tomatoes and sea salt and let sit for 10 minutes.

Add the diced pepper, onions, garlic, mango, jalapeno, lime, black pepper and cilantro to the tomatoes and toss to mix.
