Pancetta Crisps w/ Goat Cheese & Pear - I got this idea from my friend Katie's Christmas party. They are phenominal and so easy.
16 teaspoons soft fresh goat cheese (from 5-ounce log)
2 very ripe small pears, halved, cored, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Fresh thyme leaves
Seven Layer taco dip
This has been a long time favorite when ever we all get together.
1 pound ground beef
1 pakage taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
1 jar salsa
1 container sour cream
1 pakage shredded cheese
green onions, black olives, or other add'l toppings you might like
Brown beef and add seasoning. Spread beans along bottom of a 13 x 9 dish, then meat, then salsa, then sour cream, then cheese. Top with any toppings and serve with tortilla chips. Yummy!
