Nacho Average Teacher Appreciation Gift Basket Idea

What do you call a cheese that isn’t yours? NACHO CHEESE! 

My kids are obsessed with this silly joke and it inspired our Teacher Appreciation Week gift this year. We filled a galvanized bucket with all the nacho essentials – chips, salsa, queso and even a cute cactus sipper cup. We plan on also adding a gift card to Cafe Rio, one of our favorite nearby Mexican food restaurants. You really can’t go wrong with this teacher gift idea. I mean, who wouldn’t want a bucket full of nachos?! Go say thank you to your “Nacho Average” teachers!
