I had some Yukon Gold potatoes and thought they would work fine. Fresh Market had fresh salsa on sale, and Harris Teeter had avocados for $1.00 apiece, taco seasoning mixes at buy one, get one free, plus shredded cheese, sour cream and ground beef at reduced prices. Great timing!

Even though the list of ingredients is long, this is quite easy to put together, especially after you cook the potatoes and ground beef. It is a nice alternative to the more traditional nachos, especially if you love potatoes like I do.

Kel’s Reduced-Fat, Spicy Jalapeño Pimento Cheese

Spread Kel's pimento cheese on bread

If you are from the South, chances are that pimento cheese has been a staple in your diet since you were old enough to eat it. You probably have a family recipe, handed down from your mom or grandmother, that is oh, so good and easy to make. It’s great to see that a number of area restaurants are including pimento cheese on their menus, either as a dip, sandwich filling or burger topping. All I have to say to Triangle chefs is “Yaaaay” for including a little bit of heaven to some of your dishes, like this grilled fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich from Relish Cafe and Bar in Raleigh!
