I have no words to thoroughly describe this deliciousness, but let me try. A few bloggers were recently asked by Old El Paso to create something new and delicious with their Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans. We love Mexican food, and the husband and I immediately started throwing out ideas. We mentioned a few to our family to see what they wanted to see most, and my brother in law, Steve mentioned a twist on my taquito idea-7 layer dip taquitos. Oh what?! HECK YES.

Everyone loves 7 layer dip. It’s all over the blog world, internet, recipe books and March Madness recipe line ups as well as every football game, Super Bowl, etc. Well, with March Madness happening in just a few short days I thought the world might just be ready for this deliciousness. And ladies, even if you aren’t interested in the game you can totally surprise the boys with this and if you don’t already you might just have your man “put a ring on it”.

Disclaimer:*results are not typical. Most women did not get proposed to just by making taquitos, but the chances will greatly increase. 😉

Anyway, on to the important stuff. These little taquitos are slam packed with flavor. The refried beans have a little cumin and chili powder for extra flavor, cool and creamy sour cream and the bomb diggity that is Guacamole, then everything is topped with colby jack cheese, wrapped up and fried to a crunch, gooey, oozy perfection. And then dip those suckers in a fresh pico de gallo. I promise it’s the way to do it. It adds a little punch of freshness and bright flavor to the taquitos. Trust me.


Did you just die? I know I did and I just had one 3 hours ago, but I’m ready for another.
