    Default Southwest Quick-Dip

    Southwest Quick-Dip
    1 can reduced fat or fat free refried beans
    1 can Hormel Chili (no beans)
    4 oz. chopped green chilis
    8 oz. Salsa or Picante sauce
    8 oz. 1/3 less fat Cream Cheese (Neufchatel)
    Cumin, to taste (I use about 2 teaspoons)
    Hot sauce, if desired
    Shredded cheddar cheese

    Combine all ingredients except the shredded cheese. Cook over low/medium heat, stirring often, until cream cheese is completely melted. Pour into a baking dish, top with shredded cheese and let stand until cheese melts. Garnish with green onion tops and diced tomatoes, if desired. Serve with corn or tortilla chips.

    Post Green Slime Punch

    2 cans frozen lime juice
    1 large bottle of Sprite or gingerale
    1 quart frozen lime sherbet
    bag of ice cubes
    sliced limes


    In a large bowl slightly smash up the frozen juice. Add 6 to 8 juice cans of soda. Stir in 1/2 bag or 6 trays of ice. Float the whole container of sherbet on top. For the adults add a half a can of vodka and limes or for a kids party or Hallowe'en garnish with gummi worms. Let it sit 15 mins before serving. Try other flavors, just match the juice to the sherbet.
