We try to go meatless once a week to help ease the burden of meal planning and to provide variety in our weekly dinners. Sometimes you never know where the week will go, so we like to have easy options available without a lot of prep work! I usually keepMorningStar Farms® products in our freezer since they are fast and help reduce the amount of meat in our diet. If you want to go Meatless on Mondays (like we did!), here is a quick way to do it.
Since we are both busy working parents, we have to try to find ways to discover more time in our day. When Walmart offered Online Grocery Pickup, we knew this would be a simple solution for those busy evenings. Instead of having to brave the aisles with everyone else as they get off of work for the day, we can simply shop online and pick up on our way home. I looked for MorningStar Farms® Chorizo Crumbles which came in a value pack (more product for a good price!). It is vegan and has no artificial colors or flavors. If you haven’t triedMorningStar Farms® before, they are for everyone! They are an “as is” meal solution or you can include them in some of your family’s favorite dinner ideas like pasta, casseroles, or in these sausage nachos!
The star of the show was the chorizo sausage crumbles. These are so versatile! You can add them to anything, and they were easy to prepare.
My favorite part about making nachos is the layers. Start with your base (tortilla chips) and layer your desired ingredients. I like nachos that are filling without a lot of fluff, so I add rice, beans, corn, and fresh pico de gallo.
If you want cheesy nachos, I stick to classic shredded taco cheese melted in the oven atop a pile of chips. I don’t like to use queso.
