When it comes to flavor this tasty and incredibly flavorful Taco Style Cream Cheese Dip is the way to go.
Not only that it is extremely delicious, but easy as well. All you need a couple of amazing ingredients, top it with whatever you usually top your tacos and you are done.

Ingredients

  • Mission® Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips, 9 oz
  • 2 sticks of cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 pouch taco seasoning
  • Toppings:
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cups assorted tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4-1/2 jalapeño, optional
  • 1/2 cup pitted black olives, sliced

Instructions

  2. Transfer the mixture to the serving dish and add all desirable toppings, preferably fresh.
  3. I used toppings that we usually add to our tacos, so it made perfect sense to add lettuce, tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapeño and black olives and serve it with our favorite restaurant-style Mission Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips.
  4. Keep the dip cold before serving.

Notes

  • Refrigerate dip if you are not going to serve it right away.
  • For the best taste, use whole milk dairy products.
  • Use fresh ingredients for the toppings, as they are preferably the best to make this dip colorful and at the same time, beautiful and tasty.
  • You may make your own taco seasoning.
  • Add more Sour cream if needed
  • Fast way to bring cream cheese to room temperature: Take the cheese block out of the paper carton package, then unopened cheese, place in the warm, almost hot water for about 5 minutes.

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata

Easy Breakfast Strata reminds me of a wonderful world of casseroles.

They are not only tasty, beautiful, nor easy to make, they are so versatile as well. 

This golden deliciousness, Breakfast Strata was so simple to make and we all enjoy it very much. I make this often over the weekend.

Sometimes it’s without any bread which makes it more like crustless quiche or frittata, and sometimes I add leftover biscuits from dinner before. 

Easy Breakfast Strata

My son, who doesn’t care much for asparagus made his own version, which we all loved.

He will go to University next year, so I have been more persistence regarding him learning things around the house, in particular how to cook more complexed meals.

Don’t get me wrong, he knows how to cook basic meals, clean the house, wash and survive as a young adult, but I feel like he can always learn more.

I know many moms would agree, but I feel like crap just thinking about him leaving the nest.

Even now, a year away, it feels like part of me will be missing when he goes on his new journey.

Goodness! I am getting emotional again.

I need “kids’ going to college support group” soon haha… Seriously, how do you survive it?

Anyhow, I am watching “Eat, Pray, Love” with Julia Roberts, while eating cheese crackers, drinking my rooibos hot tea.

I am trying so hard to write something in this post other than “This dish is so delicious” but literally nothing interesting coming in my mind.

So, with that being said, I will just post this recipe and call it a night, haha!

Easy Breakfast Strata

Recipe
Yield: Serves 6

Easy Breakfast Strata

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

The wonderful world of casseroles. They are not only tasty, beautiful, nor easy to make, they are so versatile as well. 

Ingredients

  • 10 slices Italian Bread the best of it’s a bit stale, two to three days old
  • 8 Large Eggs mixed
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipped Cream or Half and Half
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 10 Asparagus younger, if possible, sliced
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Diced Country Ham you can sub with bacon, Canadian bacon, or boar’s head smoked ham
  • 1/2 Green Pepper diced
  • 1 cup of Shredded Cheese or 6 slices deli cheese (I used smoked gruyere cheese)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. In a large pan saute together asparagus, country ham, and green peppers. Add about 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes at medium-high heat. Stir to saute everything equally.
  3. Mix eggs together, then to the eggs add 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon dry parsley and a pinch of baking soda. Baking soda acts to make eggs puffy and perfect so do not be afraid to add just a pinch. If you don’t have it, that’s fine too. No need to panic. Strata will come out delicious regardless.
  4. To the egg mixture add 1/2 cup heavy whipped cream, or half and half; Mix it again.
  5. Oil the baking dish with a drizzle of olive oil, you can use butter if you wish.
  6. Line bread in the baking dish and drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
  7. Top bread with the veggie and ham mixture. Spread equally. Then pour over mixed eggs and cream mixture. 
  8. Press the bread with the fork or spatula. You can keep it in the fridge overnight, or you can bake it right away.
  9. Add cheese and bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven. You may use any cheese that you prefer. I made this with the Mexican blend, cheddar, and mozzarella, so whatever cheese you use it will be fine. 
  10. You can garnish it with chopped parsley or green onions

Notes

I made this one using two smaller baking pans but the measurements are for one family size Strata, about 8 servings. This makes an amazing meal for a week. You can mix and match vegetables and meat. You can make it vegetarian or meat lovers.

Sodium: Country ham is already packed with sodium, as well as cheese so you really do not need much.
