If there is one thing that my simple weekly meal plans have taught me, it’s to take advantage of time I’m spending in the kitchen with the cook once, eat twice method. It’s not something that I used to on a regular basis, but when life gets crazy and you’ve got kids and work and life and HOUSEWIVES…somethings got to give.

I don’t like to give up social time or life time or kid time so I frequently cook a big batch of something (usually in the slow cooker!) and then turn it into something completely different later in the week.

This is a huge part of my weekly meal plan. Cook once, eat twice. Stress less. (Another big piece of the plan is that I take the mental load of researching, testing, and planning easy, heathy, and balanced meals on FOR YOU!

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili Nachos with sour cream

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili turns out to be the perfect (and I really mean perfect) topping for nachos. I love using my slow cooker turkey quinoa chili – it takes just 10 minutes to prep. The slow cooker turkey quinoa chili itself is a satisfying mix of turkey, squash, tomatoes, quinoa, black beans, and all of the usual chili spices.

So eat it as chili for dinner one night, and the next? Nachos!
