The musical was this weekend. With all the chaos that has surrounded it, it’s been hard to find time for anything, so all of the snacks I’ve been making have had to be quick.
So, I present to you, my list of quick snacks to make.
1. Microwave Nachos
Ingredients: tortilla chips, salsa, ranch, cheddar cheese
Optional Additional Ingredients: olives, sour cream, tomatoes
To make it, simply put the nacho chips on a plate, then cover them in all the other ingredients. Unless you are using sour cream. If you are using sour cream, don’t put it on yet. Put the rest of the ingredients in the microwave and cook it for about half a minute. Then, if desired, put on sour cream.
Don’t feel limited to these ingredients. This is a very adaptable recipe, so have fun playing with it.
2. Tortilla Pizzas
Ingredients: Tortilla, shredded cheese, pizza topping, tomato sauce
To make it, spread tomato sauce on tortilla, then put on toppings, then the shredded cheese. Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 9-12 minutes.
3. Easy Parfait
Ingredients: Yoghurt, granola, fruit
Today was the second time I’ve ever made parfaits. When I was younger I thought they were super hard, but they’re actually really easy, and I know how to make them in single servings now. The trick is if you’re making parfaits for many people, get a large yoghurt container because it’s economical. If making for only one use a small container because it’s convenient.
I know that sounds stupidly obvious, but it took me a while to figure out.
Anyway, the other thing that makes parfaits seem difficult is the fruit. The truth is, that canned fruit actually taste pretty good in it, as long as it’s cut up to bite sized portions. Also, if you do insist on using fresh fruit, I’d suggest a banana. It doesn’t take long to cut up, and it’s a bit softer than most fruits, which I think goes better with the texture of the dish.
