It is finally 2015. And with the tail end of the holidays, I have been crazy busy. However I have plans in place for some great things this year and I’m excited to share it all with you!
In the meantime, we have this little thing called the Superbowl coming up on 2-1-15. Some people love this big game day, especially when it’s time to party, drink and eat! So I thought what is the easiest thing to make that will feed a lot of people that just about everyone can enjoy? NACHOS!
There are SO many ways to make nachos, it’s ridiculous. The classic, tortilla chips and shredded cheese. Boom, done. But admittedly, that’s kind of boring especially if you’re going to feed party people. So I went out and found some unique nacho recipes, hopefully these will kick up some excitement at your next party.
Sorta Spicy: Buffalo Chicken Nachos – I’m not a real big “buffalo” fan personally, but I know a lot of people who are.
For Breakfast: Breakfast Nachos – Aw hell, if you’re going to eat nachos for the first meal of the day, it may as well be these!
Slow-Cooker Nachos: Emeril’s Crazy Nachos – This is only partly a slow-cooker recipe, but slow-cooker pulled pork just sounded way too good to pass up. Not a huge fan of those banana peppers, I’d swap em out for something else, but it just sounded so good otherwise.
Southwest Style: Corn and Steak Grilled Nachos – Now this is up my alley, these just sound crisp and delicious. This particular find also brings up the question of making nachos in the microwave vs the oven. I FAR prefer the oven myself.
Chili Dog Nachos: Rachel Ray’s Chili Dog Nachos – So there used to be this little hot dog shop in downtown Saint Paul that I used to go to something like 15+ years ago. They had the most amazing Chicago-style hot dog and chili cheese fries. I always joked that they were a “heart attack in a paper boat”, but damn they were greezy delicious. This oddly reminds me of that, with a little less greezy of course.
Minnesotan Nachos: Totchos Supreme – Being a born and bred Minnesotan, I felt the need to explore a tater tot variant of nachos. Rumor has it the Minnesota Wild have an “Uff Da Nachos”, but I couldn’t find a recipe for it. Instead, I found this amazing sounding tater tot nacho recipe. I’m SO gonna try this one!!!
I’m curious to hear about all of your nacho loves, feel free to post a comment about your favorite nacho dish!
