Appetizers, Pickles, Relishes

Bean Dip
This is a delicious appetizer!
1 package Cream Cheese (8 oz.) at room temperature
1/2 cup mild salsa
1/2 package of taco seasoning mix ( I use Old El Paso)
1 can Refried Beans (I use Old El Paso)
1/2 cup green onions (diced)
250 g. sour cream
1 lb. (or more) medium cheddar cheese (grated)
Tortilla chips
Mix HALF of the cheddar cheese together with the rest of the ingredients in a casserole dish.  Sprinkle the remaining cheddar over the top.
Place uncovered in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove from oven when cheese has melted.  
Serve warm with sturdy Tortilla chips.

Lemon Tahini dip/spread (great on a roll, rice cake, vegies, etc.)
1 C. roasted tahini (I think Maranatha brand is sold in health food stores all over the country & is from Ashland, Or -- my town)
1/2 C. water
3/4 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. garlic (chopped)
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. oregano
blend all ingredients together either by hand or blender (if by blender add water first, then small amounts of tahini with the blender running-to prevent stopping up the blades). Thickens up in fridge.  Refrigerate unused portion.
