Dip as a Dinner

Am I the only one that sees a fantastic dip recipe, saves it in some kind of party folder on the computer and there is sits?  It may sit there indefinitely, never touched!  I hate that!  Why does it have to be a party to have dip?!  

I made a Queso Cheese Dip and ate it for dinner.  Yes...I had my own little Par-tay.  I may have even done some dancin' in the kitchen as it's been 9 months since I've been able to eat queso cheese!  I was a happy momma! 

Along with this dip, I made for the first time tostadas out of Joseph's Pitas!  I had very little hope that they would work and they ended up being FANTASTIC!  

Queso Dip for Dinner

Ingredients:
Ground Beef or Sausage (your choice)
Taco Seasoning
Veggies (Like peppers, onions, mushrooms)
Queso Fresco Block Cheese
Sour Cream



Brown your meat.  When it's nice and cooked, add your taco seasoning and some water and let it cook down.  (Just like making tacos)


Remove meat to a square baking dish.  Sauté veggies in the same pan.


Once your veggies are done.  Add them to your beef in the square baking dish.  Top your meat and veggie mixture with Queso Fresco Cheese.  I just cut mine up into big chunks and spread around.  Bake at 350 until melted and bubbling. 


Tostadas

Joseph Pitas (I like the mini ones for this recipe)
Coconut oil 
salt



I like the mini Joseph Pitas for this because they were small enough to pick up and hold!

Heat some coconut oil in a pan.  Cut the pitas in half and fry each half.  


While they are still hot and oily, sprinkle with some salt.

**Careful!  These suckers burn easily.  



YUMMM!  Spread  a little dip on a tostada and top with some sour cream!  It's a Par-tay!!!  Well, it's really just a Tuesday night, but... Ole anyway!!!


**Note**
1 small pita is 4 net carbs so I ate 1 whole pita plus half of another (total of 3 tostadas) and stayed at my 6 net carbs.  These were good the next day too.  Not quite as crunchy but still made it to leftovers.  

Alternately, I think if you didn't have or didn't like queso cheese, I think Monterey Jack would be great too!

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
BUT.................
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  




SHRINK the FAT...

**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
