This post was compensated by Jimmy Dean as part of my participation in a campaign with the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

Next week our girls head back to school and it’s time to start planning our quick and easy meal ideas for back to school. Jimmy Dean is making dinner easier than ever with new varieties of meals that are perfect for family meals. Create your own nacho bar is one of our easy weeknight meals.

Just having quick things like Jimmy Dean Pulled Pork, Jimmy Dean Grilled Steak and Jimmy Dean Golden Roasted Chicken on hand make for an easy and quick meal in a flash. You can easily find these new varieties from Jimmy Dean right in your freezer isle and are perfectly portioned just for meals. Add to pasta or top nachos, it’s nice to have a meal to make on hand.

One of our favorite meals on busy weeknights is a fun nacho bar. Letting our kiddos get creative and take ownership in their meal is a great way for them to eat more of the good stuff. Giving them options and new flavors to try is a great way to keep them happy and healthy!

To create the nacho bar we wanted plenty of fresh vegetables to serve with the Jimmy Dean Grilled Steak and Jimmy Dean Golden Roasted Chicken. Our girls love bright colors so I always like buying things like peppers in bright colors for meals.

Cooking the Jimmy Dean Grilled Steak and Jimmy Dean Golden Roasted Chicken was easy I simply cooked it over the stove top until it was thoroughly heated. They both make for a flavorful topping to the nachos.

    A nacho bar is a great idea. Everyone can personalize there nachos to there own taste and what they like, this would be great idea for a football watching party!

    we love nachos!! so good!

    Love nachos, but they tend to not love me back. I have found Beanito chips that are made of rice and bean to help with my wheat/corn allergies. I can also leave out the dairy as it does not love me. and I would have to check the Jimmy Dean strips to make sure they are gluten free. It takes a mathmatician/scientist to make sure I do not kill myself while trying to eat.
