Recipe of the Week: Nachos
This versatile recipe is a crowd pleaser, regardless of the age of your crowd. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute go-to for the Super Bowl this weekend, or a simple weeknight dinner for yourself or your family, the combinations are endless (and let’s face it, who can resist melted cheese?).
I love getting my kids involved with cooking and it doesn’t get much easier or more exciting than literally throwing food on top of a bed of tortilla chips. One of the best parts about getting kids in the kitchen is that they taste along the way and many times try a food that they probably otherwise wouldn’t touch.
We start tossing by tossing on protein, either meat, chicken, beans, or a combo, and then add on shredded cheese and salsa. After baking for ~8 minutes at 350 degrees to melt the cheese we top with chopped tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream and avocado. Nachos are easy to customize- if someone wants more or fewer ingredients it’s easy to make part of the tray specific to their liking. What are your favorite combos?
