Going Mexican Tonight

My family just loves a good Mexican meal, but that wasn't always the case.

Years ago, my kids would cry at the thought of having to eat a meal that contained any kind of chili or refried beans, and the complaints would be quite numerous.

Along about the time they became teenagers, things began to change in a drastic way.

Their tastebuds finally began to recognize the good taste of a variety of foods - and Mexican became one of their favorites.

They couldn't get enough nachos, or chili, or tacos, or burritos, and the list just goes on.

I also have always loved it, but the beans just never seemed to agree with me - especially as I have gotten older. So when hormel came out with a No Beans Chili - I was too happy!

I could make our favorite meals and indulge in them too - and the food was healthy - no trans fats or artificial ingredients.

One of the kid's favorites is such a simple dish to prepare, and when I serve a salad to go along with it, it covers all the food groups which is always a concern for me.

We call them Nachos, and it goes like this:

Spread tortilla chips in a glass baking pan or a cookie sheet would work too.

We then spread a can of the no beans chili over them, and put some salsa on top of the beans.

We cover the entire creation with shredded Mexican cheese, and bake it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is thoroughly melted and the chili has warmed through.

After looking through several of the recipes on the Hormel Food site, I am anxious to try some of the other delicious looking meals they have featured.

I didn't realize Hormel made so many different products - many that I have used through the years.

They have been a trusted brand for my family and I will continue to look for that familiar label on other products as well!
