Ok, onto the real deal today. So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. Blog thinking. It’s no secret I’ve been less frequent on the blogosphere this past year, due to the time demand of being a professor. The first year was hard and once again, I lost my blogging mojo. The past week as I’ve started to gain my time back, I thought long and hard about the future of this blog. Was it even worth it to keep going? What did I want out of this? Does anyone even read what I say? I ended up writing down things that I wanted to see in a blog/website to make ME interested in reading and one of the things was recipes for only 1 or 2 servings. It’s just me at my house and I want leftovers for lunch for one day, max. Last week I was then whipping up an old favorite when I realized, “hey! this is a single serving recipe! and i actually have time to share it!”.
So here we are. First recipe in forevs. Enjoy.
I’ve been making this dip for about a year now and it is so simple! I concocted the recipe last fall when I was craving taco dip but unwilling to pay the outrageous prices for pre-made dip from the deli. My new found love for sour cream/greek yogurt fueled the base and it took off from there!
2 tablespoons light sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning
2 tablespoons refried beans
1 tablespoon cheese
2 tablespoons shredded lettuce (I usually guess-timate this)
1 tablespoon diced tomato
2 green onions diced
In a small custard cup or rammekin (I use these pyrex custard cups), mix sour cream and taco seasoning. On top of the sour cream, layer beans, half the cheese, lettuce, tomato, green onions, and remaining cheese. Serve with peppers or tortilla chips for dipping! You can also easily multiply this recipe to make more servings.
