Spicy Albondigas
This was an amazing recipe! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef to reduce the fat content, and I also used 2 fresh jalapeños, diced, as a substitute for the canned chiles, since I didn't have any. I did add red chile flakes, since we like our food to be on the spicier side. I also added 2 diced zucchini to the soup, and the broth was outstanding. This soup is my new favorite! By the way, this makes a lot of soup, which is not a bad thing at all, since it freezes well.

Seven Layer Taco Dip
This a great dip recipe to which I made some changes to due to personal preference and some of the other reviewers tips. So many other reviewers said they did not have enough bean dip to cover the bottom of the pan called for in the recipe and some actually bought a smaller sized glass dish. Instead, I bought an extra can of bean dip, and that problem was solved. Also, I do not add the taco seasoning to the bean dip. I add it to the sour cream and cream cheese mixture because I think the flavors blend nicely together in the dip, rather than getting it in one kind of raw, spicy tasting scoop of the beam dip. I also used 16 ounces of fresh salsa and added a layer of homemade guacamole. I also skip the green pepper and shredded lettuce. I received a lot of compliments on this dish and it was devoured!

Puppy Chow I
Great and easy to make dessert! I had to use semi-sweet chocolate chips that did not contain any milk(by Ghiradelli) since we have milk allergies in the family, and I used Rice Chex cereal. It was such a treat for the child with the allergy, since it is so hard to find chocolate desserts without milk in them! Thanks for the recipe, Bonnie!
