Cheesin’ It Up with Velveeta’s New Dinner Kits

Why, yes, I AM a writer for a freezer cooking blog. But…that doesn’t mean I always cook from my freezer. Sometimes I forget to set things out to thaw. Sometimes I need something super quick to throw together for dinner in between daddy coming home late and ballet or gymnastics practice. And, sometimes, I go to the freezer and see that I’m running low on freezer meals. GASP!

I like to keep some handy meal kits on hand for moments such as these. Velveeta just came out with 3 new flavors of their Cheesy Casserole kits: Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd’s Pie and Chili Cornbread. I tried the Chili Cornbread. I browned a pound of ground beef, added the seasonings and vegetables and let it simmer. I added some black beans and corn to make it more like a Southwestern Casserole. Then, the filling was placed in a casserole dish, and topped with yummy Velveeta cheese and a cornbread topping. After a few minutes in the oven, we were ready to eat. It had a great flavor, and no surprise, the kids loved it! So much so that they didn’t even protest (too much) when I made them eat their brussel sprouts!

    Fak cheese and tons of preservatives and harmful chemicals. Gross. I’m bummed that you’re promoting this.

      We serve a broad audience, and I know this product isn’t for everyone. This post is definitely not geared towards our whole foods and paleo menus. But it’s bringing a family together to the table and we support that in all our menus.
