I love home cooked meals as much as anyone, especially my cheezy enchiladas. But with two little ones underfoot, I don’t always have the time or the energy to prepare a big meal. So, I’ve been trying out the microwave steam veggie bags that our local walmart carries. I think I’m in love! They are quick, easy and healthy…that’s a win in my book.

Today I experimented with something new, the southwestern style rice. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, I’m not a huge fan of spicy food, but the rice with broccoli and cheese steamer had been good, so I wanted to try another rice dish.

I made what turned out to be really tasty nachos:

1 bag of southwestern style rice “steamfresh”
1 slice of cheddar cheese
ketchup to taste
chips

I cooked the rice as directed on the bag, melted a slice of cheese on top and stirred in some ketchup. I used chips to scoop it up, and it was great! I suppose a tortilla for a quick burrito would also work.

Now I just have to test it on the kids…but since they would eat ketchup straight if I let them, I don’t think it’ll be a tough sell.
