Layers (two recipes)

Sorry, no pictures. I thought about it, but then these got gobbled up, so it didn't happen.

Layer Cake:

Very basic, but a fun spin on plain old cake.

Cake mix (plus whatever is needed to make said cake)
Chocolate pudding
Topping of choice

Make the cake and cool it completely. Frost the cake with pudding. Top with fruit, chopped up candy bars, nuts, cool whip, etc. Last time, we did yellow cake, chocolate pudding, and strawberries. Pat Horton is the one who introduced me to frosting a cake with pudding, and it is very good, and easy.

Layer Taco Dip:

sour cream
taco seasoning
whatever other taco toppings you want

Mix sour cream and taco seasoning. Finely chop onions and mix those in. Spread mixture on pizza pan, cookie sheet, or serving tray. Top with layers of other taco toppings. Serve with chips. I did serve this for dinner the other day, and put seasoned hamburger meat on the side.

Yeah, I know, I'm not that fancy. But, hey, these are good, easy, not too hot food.
