A Mexican Dinner

Want to see what I had for dinner last night? You might be a little jealous because it was SO DELICIOUS!




Delicious looking right?


First I found this recipe for Taco Pockets. I thought to myself, I'll have to try those! And then I found one for a Taco Dip and I knew it was fate... we were having MEXICAN for dinner! I called my mom with a list and she ran by the store on her way home.


The first recipe I found was the Taco Pockets from Aunt Peg's Recipe Box (you may remember her from Spotlight Sunday). I followed her recipe exact and used homestyle biscuits. It was SOOO YUMMY! I LOVED THEM! It took me a while to get the hang of filling them (without making a huge mess) and they look pretty funny but they were GOOD! Be sure to check it out! Here's a few pictures of mine:






The second recipe is from Making Memories... One Fun Thing After Another for a Touchdown Taco Dip. Talk about DELICIOUS! I've always loved taco dips but never made one of my own. This was the perfect opportunity! I added a layer of refried beans over the sour cream layer and used lettuce instead of cilantro (I'm not a big cilantro fan). It was a BIG hit with me and my dad! Be sure to check out the recipe! Here's a few pictures of mine:







So go check out those recipes and have a Mexican Fiesta of your own!

I make these all the time but call them Taco Melts. We put black beans in ours as well. They make great leftovers, if they last that long. Yum :)
