Mexican Food

Every year we celebrate Cinco de Mayo with friends and family--for the sole purpose of pigging out on Mexican food. Mmmmm...
This year we had a big group that came in shifts, the last of them leaving close to midnight.
Clark's carne asada was a huge success. I made several dips. My nacho sauce was a hit so I thought I would share it here.

Cheesy, Creamy, Nachos
1 block of Velveeta
1/4 cup sour cream
1 8oz cream cheese
1 can diced tomatoes (with cilantro, onion, or plain)
1 can of your fave chilli with beans (with or without meat)
1 4oz. can green chillis
1/4 cup fave salsa
Mix and melt it all together. I use a crock pot and start it an hour ahead of time. Serve with tortilla chips.
Soooooo yummy.

Comfort food like this is what eating for fun is all about! (=

Yum! The sauce looks like a good one--and I am a Nacho connoisseur, you know. We will try it promptly. We spoke Spanish all day in home school and had our Mexican extravaganza as well. Funny how we love any excuse to celebrate! Wish we could have partied together.

Really? I don't believe you.

Boy this sounds good. I make something similar but I use Kroger Queso Blanco which is just a cheap white colored knock off of Velveeta... and instead of cream cheese something called Neufchatel (sp?). It is lower in fat and doesn't make the dip harden up as much if you have to refrigerate any later.

Still yours is probably so tasty there was none left.

@Matthew Rush --actually I did use the "other crm cheese" it is one third the fat. (= And it was YUUMMY!
