We gather at my sister's house every Easter Sunday. My contribution this year was two appetizers - deviled eggs and a Mexican dish. It was my first time making deviled eggs, but so everyone said, they were great!
Place eggs in a pot andash fill with cold water about an inch above eggs. Bring to a boil, lower heat and let simmer covered for 10 minutes. Place pot into the sink and run cold water into pot until all the water is cold. It eliminates having to drain the water from the pot, causing the eggs to crack. Let eggs sit in cold water until they are chilled. Peel eggs, rinse under cool water to be sure all shells are removed and set aside to allow eggs to dry.
Remove roasted peppers from the jar and place in a strainer in the sink to drain.
Slice eggs in half longways. Remove yolks and place into a bowl, setting whites aside in a separate pan. Mash yolks with a fork until they are crumbled into very small pieces. Season yolks to taste. Add mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder and salt. Mix thoroughly until mixture is smooth and spreadable.
Place yolk mixture into a plastic baggie and seal bag. Cut a small hole in tip of one corner. (see video) Squeeze plastic bag forcing yolk mixture out into the egg white shells. Smooth filling out with the back of a spoon on each egg. Sprinkle with a light dusting of paprika.
Place a roasted pepper flat on a plate and cut small strips. Place one strip on each egg. Enjoy!
Place ground beef in a frying pan on medium/high. Sprinkle with a bit of garlic powder. Fry until browned, chopping meat into very small pieces.
Refried beans - chop one medium onion and several cloves of garlic. Place in frying pan in hot butter on medium heat. Cook until soft. Add pinto beans. Cook mixture until beans are hot and soften. Mash beans.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
(See Video for preparation of dish) Layer pan with Fritos scoops. Add a layer of ground beef, black beans, red beans, refried beans and cheddar cheese. Add another layer of Fritos scoops on top and repeat layers of ingredients. Top with Fritos original.
Place pan into oven and heat until cheese melts and refried beans are hot.
Cut avocado and place into a bowl. Mash into creamy mixture.
Top dish with dollops of sour cream and avocado. Place salsa in a bowl on the side.
Serve dish with a large serving spoon. Spoon individual servings of mixture into small plates or bowls, place some salsa on the side and enjoy!
