Finger Friendly Nachos

At least once a week, I prepare a meal that requires using only fingers to eat. How I came up with this "tradition" is still vague, but the kids think it's great to eat with their fingers.  I love the challenge of trying to come up with a different utensil-free meal every week. But sometimes I revert back to an all time favorite.  Here is a finger friendly yummy meal that can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.

You will need:
1 box of Velveeta Mexican Yellow Cheese
2 packages of cooked breakfast hot (spicy) sausage links
1/2 cup milk
1 can chopped tomatoes and green chile
1 can sliced jalapeƱos
1 bag of your favorite tortilla chips

Cut the cheese (ha! never thought I'd write this in a blog...) into four pieces and place in a glass bowl large enough to hold all your ingredients. Add milk and microwave until all cheese is melted.  I microwave the cheese and milk 3 minutes at a time and it usually takes about 6-7 minutes to get the cheese melted.  Make sure to blend the cheese and milk until you get a smooth mixture. Chop each breakfast link into 6 pieces.  Add links and drained can of chopped tomatoes and green chile to cheese and mix.  Microwave for 2 minutes more.  Serve over a pile of tortilla chips and top with jalapeƱos.
And that's it.  Dinner is served...
now go wash your hands, it's time to eat.

What a fun tradition to have a finger food night! My kids always eat with their fingers. Maybe I'll have to start this tradition and I can join in on the fun!
