One of my goals for 2012 was to get better organized at planning family meals. While it hasn’t been any easy task, especially since I was a day-to-day meal planner before, I have found a few tips that are working quite well for our family. I picked up a dry erase board at a local store that has a weekly calendar printed on it and I can quickly fill in meals for the entire week and base my grocery list on that. Also, I like to keep certain food items stocked in my freezer and pantry for quick fix dinners that can thrown together when life gets in the way of our planned meal.
One of those quick fix dinners is ultimate nachos. Our pantry is always stocked with basics like corn chips, black olives, VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel®. Together with a pound of ground beef from the freezer you can create a meal that is fast and full of flavor.
To put these nachos together just start with a plate of your favorite chips, I prefer yellow corn.
Top the chips with cooked ground beef .
Melt some VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® tomatoes with diced green chiles in the microwave. Pour it right over the chips and beef.
Now just top it off with your favorite vegetables. We always have black olives on hand for this meal.
A dab of sour cream in the center finishes off the Ultimate Nachos for a meal ready to munch in less than 10 minutes!
Don’t forget about the Weeknight Wow Sweepstakes where you can enter to win $1000 that’s being given away each week, and one grand prize winner of $15000!
