Happy Super Bowl Weekend, everyone!  Personally, I’m sold out for college football but don’t care too much for NFL.  However, I’ll never turn down an opportunity to get together with friends, eat junk food, cheer loudly, and watch dudes in tight pants hit each other.  So I love Super Bowl parties!

This nacho casserole is my contribution to the influx in football party food that has overtaken the internet recently.  But get this…it’s Weight Watchers!  And yes I know, super bowl parties are supposed to include junk food, right?  Men aren’t supposed to care about calories, especially while the big game is on!  Well I can guarantee that the men will never know it’s low cal.  And ladies, you can just smugly chow down on this delicious feaux junk food while you watch those hilarious commercials in between plays (yes, that was a stereotypical sexist comment…it’s also ironic since I’m a woman who LOVES football).

This stuff is SO GOOD, and in my opinion, makes the best nachos ever.  I like that it includes meat so it could be a full meal or just a snack.  I also like that it all coheres together when it’s baked.  I hate picking up a nacho and all of the goody falls right off the chip and back onto the plate…it’s frustrating.  With this dish, it’s more like a nacho flavored dip than plain ol’ nacho.  This is guaranteed to be a hit at your Super Bowl party on Sunday!
