Ok, so this is not going to be the most healthy recipe ever, but in the spirit of the Bruins here we go… Nacho Casserole
I am not a sports fan at all. Actually, I hate watching sports but Hockey on the other hand… There is nothing better! Since the Bruins are in the Stanley Cup, our nights have been scheduled around games lately. Kev gets so into it. He screams and jumps and yells “did you see that?” all night long. haha. The other night I made a special game night dinner with lots of different appetizers. One of which was this Nacho Casserole. It was delicious. Mmm beans, cheese, salsa and chips. Is there anything better?
1 can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 jar of salsa (or you could use homemade)
1 bag of tortilla chips (have you tried the Hint of Pepper Jack yet? ahh so good)
1.5 cups of refried beans (homemade or from can)
1 jalapeno sliced
1 cup shredded cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a ceramic or glass baking dish stir soup and milk together until well blended. Spread evenly.
2. Top with Chips and half of salsa.
3. Carefully spread beans across chips, sprinkle with some cheese.
4. Top with chips and remaining salsa.
5. Sprinkle with cheese, cilantro and jalapenos.
6. Bake in over for about 20 mins.
Butternut Squash with some fresh OJ
Butter (just a tiny little dab)
This is a really simple dinner. Perfect for younger babies too. If I have the time, I will buy a whole butternut squash, slice it up and cook it, but in a pinch you know what is super helpful? The frozen veggies at the grocery store. I’ve read that frozen vegetables seal in vitamins because they are frozen right away. Anyway, steam your butternut squash then add to a blender. Squeeze in some juice from an orange to add some mixing liquid. Add just a touch of butter. Blend together and you are good to go!
