Some Nights Call For “Easy” Meals

April 20th, 2015

I spent most of the day away today at a meeting in the city- fun, productive and inspiring are the words that I can use to describe the time. But as with most meetings which involved a good ebb and flow of conversation, ideas and brainstorming- the time flies. (Literally to the point that we completely forgot lunch)

By the time I got back into town, and got to the post office to pick up a package that I’d been waiting on, and did a little grocery shopping- it was time for dinner. Browsing through the grocery store, I asked my husband what he’d like to have- and he didn’t have any great ideas that would mean something ‘quick and easy’.

So I suggested we have nachos- and he agreed..

Easy- peasy and ready in less than a half hour..

It’s loosely based on a friends recipe for Taco Dip-

1 can of black or pinto beans (large can) drained and rinsed,
small jar of salsa (hot or mild)
a little ground cumin
grated cheese of your choice-
a little Velveeta or cheez Whiz of your choice and liking,
1/4 cup or so of Greek Yogurt
8 ounces of cream cheese-
Chipotle chili powder (and some rotel if you’d like)
mix it all together and using a submersion blender- zap and blend it all together. Stir in some chopped green onions- and bake until bubbly-

Serve with tortilla chips- and enjoy! (I also topped mine with some more salsa- plus some fresh avocado. Perfect fast meal- and we ate it outside, which made it almost like a picnic. Perfect bliss!
