Ultimate Nachos- What to Eat for Dinner

What to Eat For Dinner?  Those words cross my lips a few times a week, as I’m sure they have yours too!

Favorite Meals

I’ve been asked how I try to make my week night dinners special. I thought about it and seriously the first thing that popped into my mind was “I have one”. I try and plan my menu Sunday for the week, planning something that is not only nutritious, but something everyone likes and feels comfort from. Planning and making dinner really does make me feel successful! Like you, our week can get crazy busy with sports, school events, meetings, and work related items, that actually assembling together for a home cooked meal is special. If I don’t plan ahead, it can south really fast.

One of the meals my son never gets sick of is Ultimate Nachos with VELVEETA® and RO*TEL®. If I’m using VELVEETA®, he’ll eat anything. I followed the recipe from the Weeknight WOW site and added a couple of my own twists. what to make for dinner
