Margarita Cake
Great, easy, though I made some changes. Here is what I did: 1 box of yellow cake mix, 1 sm pack of vanilla pudding, 1/2c applesauce (replaced oil), 1/4c margarita mix, 1/4c tequila, 2T each of Triple Sec and Lime juice. Mix and cook per cake mix instructions (350 for ~40 min). Here is the big improvement -- the glaze is 1c regular sugar, 1/4c butter, 1/4c margarita mix, 1/2c tequila, splash of water, boiled for 5 min and then slowly drizzled over the cake once it is cool. Prick the entire top of the cake with a toothpick and over an hour add spoonfuls of the glaze. Slow is key for it to saturate the cake -- YUM! I dusted it with powdered sugar to pretty it up since the glaze is clear.

Mexican Sour Cream Rice
With some changes it was great. Here is what I did: Diced 1/2 onion, 1 bell pepper, combined with one can blk beans and 2c frozen corn, and heated in skillet with oil, garlic and 1T cumin, 1T cayenne, 2T paprika. I mixed the heated combo with rice cooked in chicken broth, 2 sm cans green chilis, tex mex cheese, 1 sm container reduced fat sour cream, and 3 lrg cans of chicken. Topped with a bit of the cheese, baked at 350 for 30 minutes and garnished with green onion. Served with salsa and quacamole -- everyone loved adding to the flavors to make it their own. Made this with the Margarita cake (though I made changes there too). Great Tex Mex nite with stuff I usually already have on hand.

Caramel Apple Dip
Awesome and Easy Instead of mixing, make the cream cheese and sugar your base layer, add caramel on top without mixing and then top with crushed Skor bar -- makes for great presentation :)
