Pesto Torta (Layered Spread)
This was so easy and so delicious! I used a smaller au gratin pan and put one package of cream cheesethen spread the pesto, then spread the chopped roasted peppers (I used Trader Joe's prepared pesto and their yellow and red roasted peppers). Then one more package of creamcheese. I didn't drain the pesto and probably could have let the peppers drain a little more but it was fine. The oil from both definitely seeped into the torta but it wasn't runny. It actually added to the spread. Will definitely make again.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat
This was excellent! Reminds me of Chipotle's Barbacoa beef. I didn't have time to brown the meat first but I don't think it made a difference. Threw in some sliced onions and bell peppers which I had, along with one large can of mild green chillis. Was worried about the spice, so only used 2 ounces of Tapitio, which was just enough heat for my tastes (pretty weak). I only used a 2 pound chuck, so I halved all the spices and added a half teaspoon of cumin as well. Cooked on high for four hours, shredded and then back on low for 2.5 more. Delicious. Only thing I would have done different is trim the fat prior to cooking.

Chili Cheese Dip I
So easy and so great! I use chili without beans so it's just a meaty, creamy mixture. And I don't use the cheddar cheese either. Just a can of beans and one block of cheese in the fondue pot. Serve with corn chips. Delish!
