NYE 2016 Nacho Bar

My idea for NYE was to have a buffet of all the food we sampled all year but no one was as excited as I was about that one. Instead we had a nacho bar. Can’t go wrong with that! It was simple, quick, cheap and an all around crowd pleaser.

I used Velveeta cheese and put it in my slow cooker. Everyone loves Velveeta but here are a couple of my observations: First, it is very salty. It would be just as easy, in fact easier to just go with Frito-Lay cheese dip and throw it in the microwave. I actually prefer that. Second, it’s pretty thick and I couldn’t figure out how to thin it out. The first time we tried it we actually put in a can of Rotel tomatoes and it turned out fine and I’m wondering if that helped thin it out. I didn’t do Rotel this time, opting instead to put it on the side for those who might not want the tomatoes in their cheese.

Without further ado here are some photos:

I had to sample the fare and it was yums!
