Appetizers Food Knock Offs

Taco Bell Pintos & Cheese

September 28, 2012

It’s that time of year again…

The changing leaves, apple cider, scarves, the annual dusting off of the crockpot…

And my transformation into Football Widow.


Might as well put blonde braided pigtails on each side of the flatscreen and call it a date.

“COME ON, Ref!”
“Manning, you throw one more turnover and that’s it!”

Sounds more like an 8th grade relationship, if you ask me. One that with every minute I anxiously hope turns hostile with the “off” button. But no. One great play and they’re back together again.


Oh wait. You mean to tell me I can eat away my Sunday night sorrows? Yes please, Mr. (“knock-off”) Taco Bell with your saucy pintos n’cheese.

Husby? The whiff under the covers? Yeah. Payback STINKS! ha!

    You are hilarious! This sounds tastey. Thank goodness my guy isn’t into football… :). He’ll be chowing on this dish beside me. I’ll probably have to kick him out of bed to sleep on the couch (since these types of foods really affect him.) Hahaha. Thanks for the recipe!
