nachos and freezer mac and cheese (gluten free)

UntitledUdi's gluten free Mac and cheese with bacon!!!

Since it's Labor Day and we're all probably out BBQing, let's "taco" bout what I have been eating lately. (I couldn't resist the pun!) My two go-to meals are nachos and gluten free mac and cheese from the freezer section (though I still love some Annie's GF easy mac). As I explained in this post, I've decided to try all the different types of gluten free mac and cheese my local safeway decides to stock. So I thought I'd share my review the Udi's one too! So sit back, and let's talk food!

First up, NACHOS!

I suggest nachos for a meal at least once a week. It's my comfort food after a run and the Fontera Taco packet has me hooked! Reid and I have had nachos for a lot of our favorite holiday dates, including St. Patrick's day - guacamole is green after all!

Sometimes we go all out with tons of different salsas and toppings, and sometimes, like pictured above, we go simple with just sour cream, jalapenos, and salsa. But out nacho "base" is always the same - chips, beef, re-fried beans, and mexican blend cheese. You know I'm working on finding the healthiest versions of everything, so here's the run down of the brands I have been buying for my "nacho average nachos!"

Nacho Average Nachos:
  • beef - butcher's cut grass fed angus ground beef 85% lean
  • taco seasoning - Fontera Texas Original Taco Skillet Sauce
  • cheese - O Organics mexican blend
  • re-fried beans - Amy's Organic (in a BPA free can!!)
  • sour cream - Daisy (I have tried some organic ones and just love the taste of Daisy the most!)
  • jalapenos - from my parents garden
  • salsa - whatever is on sale!
  • guacamole - (sometimes) homemade with lemon juice, salt, tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos

Now let's chat Mac and Cheese!

Udi's gluten free Mac and cheese with bacon!!!

How about I just say "yes please!" and call it my review! This mac and cheese with BACON is amazing! It totally hits all the right freezer mac and cheese points for me. It's easy, tastes great, texture is on point, the cheese gets a little crispy around the edges, and it's in a paper dish! And then it has bacon in it... what more could you want from a mac and cheese you can make in 5 minutes.
