Red Carpet Ready with Wholly Guacamole and Daily’s Cocktails

Are you ready for the Oscar’s tomorrow? I just love watching the red carpet and looking at all the glitz and glamour! One of these days I’m going to have an Oscar party where everyone comes all gussied up and we will walk the red carpet! However this year, I’m right smack dab in the middle of moving! UGH! So not fun! However, I took a break and had a movie night with my hubby in our new home theater! Boxes are everywhere but I unpacked a skillet and a casserole dish and made taco lasagna using some delicious salsa that I got from Wholly Guacamole. I have made taco lasagna before but I can honestly say that using Wholly Guacamole Salsa made it taste totally different than when I used the jar salsa. I see now why Wholly Guacamole salsa is in the refrigerator section…it is so fresh. You can actually smell the fresh cilantro and tomatoes! YUM!! This recipe is so easy to make….perfect for any night.

To make taco lasagna here is the recipe:

2 lbs ground beef
2 packets taco seasoning
4 cloves pressed garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon cornmeal
18 corn tortillas
2 containers (10 oz each) of Wholly Guacamole Salsa
1 cup chopped green onion
1 pint sour cream
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese 

(or just used Mexican blend cheese)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Mix chili powder and sour cream.
3. Cook and drain the ground beef.
4. Add taco mix, garlic, cayenne, and water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Grease bottom of 13×9-inch pan.
6. Place 6 tortillas in bottom of pan, overlapping and extending up edges slightly.
7. Layer approx cup salsa, 1/2 of meat, 1/2 cup green onion, 1/2 sour cream and 1 cup of each cheese.
8. Repeat, starting agin with 6 tortillas.
9. Place 6 tortillas and remaining salsa and cheese on top.
10. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
I had no measuring cups out and I just winged the measurements and it came out perfect. This is one easy recipe … no exact measurements really needed. 

To accompany our dinner, I put out tortilla chips and tried something new….Wholly Guacamole mango pepper salsa~ if you like mango then you will like this salsa!! 

I am not much of drinker but whenever I go on vacation my FAVORITE drink is a Miami Vice. I need a vacation after this move but in the meantime I decided to try making one. I have often seen those Daily’s Cocktail drink mixes at Walmart but have never tried one! OH MY WORD….what have I been missing!??! I bought the Daily’s Cocktail pina colada and the strawberry daiquiri pouch and I simply put it in the freezer. The alcohol is already perfectly mixed in. I cut it open and put in these cool glasses that was sent to me from Daily’s Cocktails and added a pineapple spear. Seriously so easy and DELICIOUS!! I could not believe how quick, easy and good it was!!! I just poured the strawberry daiquiri on one side then added the pina colada for a perfect Miami Vice. My new favorite drink now!  Seriously a must try my peeps!!! 

A perfect evening in my new house watching an Oscar nominated film!

I’m ready for tomorrow are you??
