Ok. More iphone picts. I apologize that they aren’t as great as what we usually share. I have found my SD card and will get back to regular photos in Feb!
Let’s talk about these skillet nachos and why we love them.
It’s all in one pan. You know how I love One Dish meals. I devoted an entire cookbook to them.
This is basically all the flavors of 7 Layer Dip…just assembled in a different way.
They are a great ‘counter snack’ – as long as your people know that the pan might be hot and to not touch it.
PERFECT Game Day food! (The big game is this Sunday…in case you’ve missed all the whole deflategate thing. With all the theories flying around and now Bill Nye weighing in, I’ve pretty much decided that it’s all been a big publicity stunt! #conspiracytheorist!)
But seriously…I’m only into the Super Bowl game because of the yummy snacks I get to pull together, and the commercials!!! THE COMMERCIALS!
I’ve already seen a few ‘teases’ come through my inbox from different food brands. I think we’re in for a treat this year!
Back to the nachos…
I was worried about the chips getting soggy while they baked to melt the cheese. But they really didn’t. A tiny portion of the chips soaked up a little liquid, which I thought was fine. If you’re worried about it, you could just skip the chips, top with cheese and melt it like a 7 layer dip. Then scoop out with chips!
Brown ground beef with taco seasoning.
Add black beans, well drained. To keep the amount of liquid down.
Mix sour cream and green chilies.
Add a layer.
Layer of salsa.
Add the chips.
Top with cheese.
Add diced avocado or guacamole.
Devour. These are just as addicting as 7 Layer Dip. You’ve been warned!
