Sierra Cooks Up A Tasty Nacho Recipe Just in Time for the Start of Football Season.

Sierra and I are happy to announce that we have our own website now. Thanks to all the support and encouragement from the community. The new site will allow us to have much more flexibility with our content. I hope you will join us at our new website (Please feel free to follow this link to our new site)

For this Nacho Recipe you can choose your favorite type of shredded or ground meat. In this case we chose ground pork though it could easily be done with Chicken, Turkey, or Beef. This Nachos recipe makes 4-5 servings.

Put the meat in a small sauce pan cook between medium and medium high heat.
Make sure to wash your hands with soap after handling raw meat.
Add chopped Onions to the pan. Stir to keep meat from over cooking.
Add a few twists of fresh ground black pepper.
Add two pinches of kosher salt.
Keep stirring the meat make sure you hold the pan handle while you stir. Cook until the meat is not pink anymore. (If you are using a fatty meat you should drain it at this point.)
Add the can of Pinto beans. The Jalapenos were not hot at all they just added a nice flavor.
Keep stirring you can turn the heat down to medium if you would like let it simmer stirring occasionally to make sure nothing burns on the bottom.
While beans are simmering get your bowls ready. Try to stack the chips so they are on their side this way the beans and cheese can get to all the chips.
Add your fresh diced tomatoes.
Stir the meat Cook for 1 min and remove the meat from the heat. The goal is not to cook the tomatoes just to soften them. Take the lid off the Nacho cheese dip and put it in the microwave for 3 min. Careful when taking the Nacho Cheese out of the microwave it will be hot.
Use a slotted spoon to serve the meat.
There will be a lot of broth that does not belong in the nachos make sure not to get too much of the juices with the meat let it drip out before putting it on the chips.
Pour a spoonful or two into the middle of the nachos.
Put about Three Tablespoons of Nacho Cheese in a circle around the meat. Try not to over do it with the cheese each T = 20 Calories. The meat and cheese will give the illusion that there is more nacho cheese than there really is.
Add a spoonful of Salsa to the middle.
Eat it right away. Enjoy!
