Capturing Your: Flavor

Ok, so this isn’t exactly a gourmet rocket scientist recipe, but it is good! I LOVE me some bar food. The kind that is super greasy, super fattening, and super messy. I am talking about nachos, wings,beer, jalapeño poppers, juicy burgers, fries, onion rings…I mean, I want it all. Ok, except the beer, not a huge fan, but definitely a huge fan of beer breathe kisses. Yes, I know, I am weird. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to nice restaurants but really, I am totally in my element when I am at a pub, or bar, with the TV’s on and some good old college football or basketball on….getting down and dirty, grubby on some bar food, and just enjoying the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, times like that are rare…since I have two little crib midgets and going to a bar with them sounds kind of shady. Plus, if I am going to go, it will be SANS the kids, so I can get my grub on in peace. The other night I was craving some nachos, like the kind you get at Rock Bottom Brewery…mmm…so good. So, I decided to make my own. Within minutes, I was sitting in front of the TV, on my couch, devouring these awesome nachos…I made…All.By.My.Wee.Little.Self. Take that Rock Bottom!

Here’s the no brainer recipe: Pre heat oven to 375F. Spray cooking sheet, then spread layer of chips, add cheese, then add more chips, then more cheese. Once you get the amount of cheese and chips combo, add jalapeños generously…and I am serious. I LOVE spicy, so bring it on. Stick in the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Then immediately add diced tomato, sour cream and guacamole (you can also add chicken). I made the guac while I was waiting for the nachos to bake. Devour.
