Holiday Recipes: Nacho Dip – Blogmas 12/17

A recipe today! This is a semi-spicy appetizer or side-dish that can be served with basically any kind of holiday food selection. It’s really easy to make so if you’re going to a part and need to bring something, this would be an option. 😀 Unfortunately I don’t have a picture, but that might be kind of good. This food smells and tastes much better than it looks, lemme tell ya.

The ingredients:

1 lb ground beef or ground turkey (the leaner, the better)

1 packet taco seasoning

1 can chilis and tomatoes

1 lb Velveeta

Generics of any of these are totally fine

Directions:

In a skillet, brown the beef until cooked through. Drain the chilis and tomatoes and add them along with the taco seasoning. Stir. Cut the velveeta into cubes and add it as well. Let simmer and stir occasionally until everything is melted down. This recipe will look like death but it will taste so good, I promise you! Serve over tortilla chips.


And that’s it for today. See you all again tomorrow. 😀

 

Holiday Recipes: Broccoli Bake – Blogmas 12/13

No video this time. That was a hassle I am not willing to repeat. So pbtbt.

This recipe I got from my mother and it’s one I’ve associated with Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter for as long as I can remember. It’s delicious. 😀

This is what the end result looks like:

broccoli

The recipe goes as follows:

  • 20 oz chopped broccoli or mini-florets. (Avoid ‘cut’ broccoli packages. Too much stem, not enough floret in them)
  • 8 oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayo

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Add the broccoli, mayo, eggs, soup and onion into a bowl along with 6oz of the cheese (save the other 2 oz). Mix. Get a casserole dish of some kind and spray it because this stuff sticks like nobody’s business. Add all the mixture into the dish and smooth out. Use the remaining cheese to sprinkle on top.

Cook for 30-40 minutes or until the cheese on the top is nice and brown. Put it in your face. Take a nap.


And that’s it! This one is much simpler than the last recipe and takes much less time to make. Highly recommend trying it if you love broccoli (aaaand I highly recommend it if you don’t like broccoli. I hated broccoli when I was a kid until my mom made me try this).

Until next time, happy reading. :”D
