A Recipe for Y'all

Okay, today is the Inaugural Day for my recipe posts!

I thought I'd give you some of my recipes that I've created. I love throwing together my own recipes. By posting them here, it will force me to think up some really catchy names for them! Try this one out and let me know how you like it!

Green Chili Toasts
These taste really great with taco soup!

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (don't use low fat or fat free, yuck!)
1 can chopped green chilis
2 tsps garlic powder, or 1 smashed garlic clove
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
Bread slices or round toasts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients in small mixing bowl. Mix very well. You can adjust the garlic to your taste, but we like this with lots of garlic. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spread each piece of bread with a generous amount of the mayo mixture. Lay on baking sheet and bake in oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.

Some side notes on this recipe:
This recipe was created on the fly when we were invited somewhere and I had nothing to bring. I looked in my pantry and found all of this stuff, threw it together, and was sure everyone would hate it! I was scared to tell anyone that I had made them! We took it to our gathering and everyone loved it. I came home with an empty plate, much to my utter surprise! I usually get the round bread slices on the day old bread rack at our Fred Meyer or Kroger. If you can't find round bread slices, just get a baguette and slice it yourself, or use French bread. Play around with the shredded cheese too. Pepper jack would be good if you were going to serve these with taco soup. Sharp cheddar is good if you were to serve these with wine.

Mmmm, those sound good! I bet that spread would be good on regular french bread and broiled too.

I'm looking forward to your recipes, you always have good food!!
