Happy Monday! Hope everyone had an amazing three day weekend & July 4th.
Here is a playful (and really yummy) recipe I came up with recently….lots of kicks & giggles for kids & adults Loaded Goldfish Nachos is calling your name.
You gotta love simple recipes that can be served to anyone at any time. These loaded “nachos” actually have no corn chips, but instead I used whole grain Goldfish crackers as the base.
Tasty? Oh yes!
Super quick? Uh huh.
Think about how perfect this would be when you are having a group of kids at your house. We host playdates here often & while the kids are running around I whip up a bunch of these loaded nachos.
All you need to do is cook up some seasoned ground beef, whip up a batch of homemade guacamole. Lay the Goldfish in a microwave safe dish. Layer the meat & lots of shredded cheese on top. Heat for a few minutes until the cheese is melted & gooey. Top with the guacamole & serve with a side of salsa.
Boom! This is a great lunch, dinner snack & party food.
