Whats For Dinner Mom...

I felt so bad that at 4:30 last night I had forgot to make dinner. My husband and I have kind of lost track of days and time since he has been laid off. Well, mom came to the rescue and I made Nachos. The girls and hubby love them, and they are so easy to make. They taste better in the summer with fresh ingredients but we managed. So here is what I used to make Nachos last night. You can make them so many different ways, the ideas are endless.

Organic meat 3lbs (add an Organic Onion, Organic Garlic, and your spices.)
Organic Corn Chips
Organic toppings - Black Olives
Final touches- Organic Sour Cream, and Jalapenos.

We used to make 1 huge plate of Nachos for the whole family. Now, we have more little ones, and everyone likes different things on their Nachos. In the past I have also set up a Nacho table where you can dress up your own.  It is so much fun to watch the little ones pick what they want, and the get so excited.

Here are some other ideas for Nachos
BBQ Chicken Nachos
Fajita chicken Nachos
Steak Nachos
Fish Nachos
Seafood nachos
Cheese Nachos
Plantain Nachos with Black Beans (from a great cookbook, Cooking the Cowboy Way: Recipes Inspired by Campfires, Chuck Wagons, and Ranch Kitchens)
Sausage and Sour Kraut Nachos (for the Polish man in my life)
Greek style Nachos (with lots of Feta)
Chili Dog Nachos
Dessert Nachos

Don’t forget refried beans, and Spanish rice.

Can you tell we love food in this house, What a gift from God.

My hubby likes to make "Pa's famous nachos" for special occasions like watching football. The boys know the "secret" recipe now, too. If you use the multi grain chips and add lots of tomatoes, onions and olives you can sneak a lot of nutrition in there, too!
