Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos




Started this rainy morning off with a Gouda Egg White Omelet with Turkey Sausage Links and Toast. The Shredded Gouda worked perfect as the Cheese filling in the Omelet. For the Omelet I used Meijer Brand Egg White Substitute. My Sausage was Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. And not forgetting, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

We went from being very dry out to very wet, with flooding! A whole lot of rain yesterday evening through the morning. It finally slowed and cleared up somewhat as the day went on. When we finally got a break I headed out to Meijer and Kroger. Purchased the majority of the items at Meijer. Then at Kroger a few items I needed and all of Mom’s items she needed. Noticed a most of the trees have turned to their Fall Colors throughout the area now. Lot of bright colors this year. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.



Chili and Cheese Nachos 001
Got to have my Chili and Cheese Nachos every so often, and tonight’s the night! Ingredients; I used Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives. Anyone that uses small cans of Sliced Black Olives know what a pain they can be opening sometimes. Not these, they come in a can with a pull tab About time! For my other toppings I sliced up some sliced Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good!



To prepare I preheat the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a sauce pan, as it was heating I added about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the baking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or so until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. I love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! Also had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
