Velveeta Cheesy Skillets.

The other day we were at the grocery store and something caught my eye: Velveeta Cheesy Skillets. I'd never tried one of these before, but the image on the cover sold me. Plus, they were on sale for like $5 at Vons.




This dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta cheese sauce, salsa mix, and spices. All you need to add is water and 1lb. of ground beef. And if you want to make it fancy, just top with crunched up tortilla chips.

So we followed the directions. And added tortilla chips because we were feeling especially chefy.

And guess what.

IT WAS GOOD!

Not the best picture I've ever taken, but you get the idea.

It's kind of like the best combination of enchilada casserole/ lasagna/ nachos. It was cheesy and gooey and crunchy. And when we reheated the leftovers for lunch the next day, it was just as good as it was the first time around. But trust me when I say ADD THE TORTILLA CHIPS. I was doubtful that they would make any difference, but it ended up that I wanted some chips in every bite.

The spices are very mild, so if you like your Mexican food espicy, I would season the ground beef a little before adding it to the rest of the meal. Or maybe top with hot sauce. I don't know, I'm not a spicy person. To my mouth, it was pretty fucking tasty for a boxed meal, not to mention super easy to make. I will definitely be keeping this on my shopping list.

It looks like hamburger helper - but with extra cheese.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

BONNIE/ TSARITSA/ ALLY - i've only had velveeta a couple of times in their mac n cheese, so i don't have the deep rooted love for it like some people. don't get me wrong, it's cheese and i'll pretty much never turn cheese down. but i only just started eating it recently.

MONOGAMIST - same goes with hamburger helper. i've only had it a few times. from what i can remember, it is pretty much the same thing. but it was still good enough to purchase again, IMO.
