HELLO house progress.....things continue to progress right along. This past week they put the beaded board up on the back porch, the a/c folks were putting in the guts of the system and the tubs were placed (not installed) in their proper places. Not really stuff that's all that pretty to photograph, but absolutely necessary. This week they will be finishing up the insulation and starting on the sheet rock. Definitely looking more and more like a house each week.
HELLO Mexican Stackups..... many of you that read my post this past Friday asked me to please give you the recipe for the Mexican Stackups that I mentioned. So, here goes. I don't really have a recipe and couldn't really find the recipe for the kind we make in our "neck of the woods" on the internet. So, I will share with you how I make them and it is a recipe that you can improvise however you may wish to suit your tastes. The following ingredients are stacked on a plate:
Fritos ( I crush mine)
Chili (I make mine)
Sliced black olives
Chopped green onions
Rotel cheese sauce (I make with Velvetta and Rotel in a crockpot)
Topped with crushed peanuts
These are the items that our family likes included in them but I have seen black beans, corn, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, guacamole included in the above line up or replacing some of the items in the above list. There's no right or wrong way to do them, just whatever suits your fancy. AND, can I just warn you that when you start building this stack up it will grow huge in a hurry. It is a family favorite at this house and it's always a hit if you are having a large crowd. And, even though there are a lot of ingredients, it is "easy peasy" to throw together. So, there you have it, now hope you can find an occasion to give it a try!
