Mexican Refried Beans Soup

and it was incredibly easy to reverse engineer.

chicken broth to taste
toppings (optional: shredded cheese, crunched up tortilla
chips, cilantro, black olives, avocado slices, etc.)

Mexican Theme Dinner Dessert- Pinata Cookies
These cookies are a fun desert for this theme party. Two cookies
frosted together with candy filled inside just like a pinata!
Prep your sugar cookie dough and roll out with a rolling pin. Use a
large circle cutter or bottom of a glass that is a little larger
than the bottom of your muffin tin. You'll be turning your muffin
tin over and use the bottom.
Cut out circles and place around the bottom of the muffin tin. Bake
until golden brown. Allow to cool and gently take off tin.
Fill one cookie with your candy and with a piping bag pipe frosting
around top edge of cookie. Place a second cookie on top and seal
together your pinata.
