I attended a super fun blogger event this week hosted by the kind folks over at Wholly Guacamole. Jeff and I tend to make our own guac at our home, but it’s nice to know for us and all the rest of the super busy families out there that the entire line of products by Wholly Guacamole is preservative and additive free. They do this by using a cold water high pressure processing (HPP) method to keep the food fresh. But this particular event was less about guacamole and more about their new line of salsa including five “chef inspired” flavors. All their salsa is made with all natural ingredients and is fat-free and gluten-free. And for my Jewish friends, all their salsas are Kosher certified! You can find their salsas in Kroger Food Stores and Target among other national grocers. Take advantage of their $1.50 off coupon that is being offered through the Memorial Day weekend on their Facebook page.

|Tai Shrimp Nachos|
This recipe contains three mini recipes in it, but the taste is worth it! Make these nachos on the weekend, or for a dinner party that your guests would absolutely enjoy. Tip: Make some of these ahead of time to cut down on preparation time when it comes time to make them. The slaw actually tastes extra good if you let it rest together for a day. Pick out your favorite tortilla chips and get ready to lock and load! Lower calorie tip: Use low-fat torilla chips and mayonnaise.
