Here we go… a Mexican fiesta right before your very eyes! I had way to much fun creating this little cups of joy. I presented these to a wide range of taste testers and they were a 100% hit. No one could get over the fact that I didn’t use dairy or beans. The look on their faces when I told them that the “refried beans” were made from sunflower seeds, was priceless.
I used small single serving sized jars but you could prepare this in a large baking pan as well. I can tell you though, I will always make them in single servings… everyone enjoyed walking around with them, everything portioned out, no messy plates… just down right fun.
What Bob really loved about these was the fact that each layer had its own flavor and texture. It wasn’t “one-note” that many dishes such as this could become. I didn’t post a link for a salsa because every time I make it, it’s a little different. Salsas are very simple and quick to make.
My sweet sister was here visiting with us for a few weeks and little did she know that she was going to become a taste tester for me too. She was the perfect candidate She isn’t a raw foodist, a vegan or vegetarian. She enjoys good ole fashion comfort food. So I knew that if I could get each of these components to pass by her as the “real thing”, I had a hit on my hands. She loves refried beans, sour cream, cheese and chips… and guess what? She LOVED every single one of them. She was literally shocked when I told her as to what each one was made from. Yay! It’s a win. Thanks sissy. Now… time for you to try it and when you do, please let me know what you think.
