Has anyone ever taken a hard fall, smack onto the tailbone and injured/fractured it? I did just that this weekend. I was standing on top of my kitchen counter and fell straight backwards, my backside landing smack dab on the hardwood floors. I never knew tailbone injury means such excruciating pain.
At least I can still type. While sitting on my donut-cushion. Guess those aren’t just for post-baby-birth.
I think it’s safe to say I’ll (probably) never stand on the countertop again. In my head, I somehow think I’m still that nimble little monkey-bar-climbing girl. Uh, reality check. Reality can be painful sometimes.
Thankfully, I have a few Game Day goodies I recently made and ate (with friends, of course!) prior to The Fall…
Let’s talk chips ‘n dip. Specifically, this unforgettable 7-Layer Mexican Dip that is out of this world.
This dip is a marvelous symphony of layers…refried beans, browned beef, guacamole, seasoned sour cream, veggies, and lots of cheese. It’s perfection in one big platter. People are more than happy to grab a huge spoon and shovel plenty of dip onto their plates.
Many 7-layer dips don’t necessarily include browned ground beef, but I love the flavor and gusto of ground beef with taco seasoning. It’s like eating tacos, but in dip form. Guess this could have also been called a Taco Dip.
Whatever you want to call it, it’s undeniably mouthwatering and delicious!
Game Day, SuperBowl, or any day get-togethers…make this and watch it disappear. Be sure to have plenty of good corn chips laying around!
