Simple Nachos with Grilled Chicken
I know I said I was only going to post once a week, but I just had to share this with
you. This is how we make our nachos. Now, I know the ones in the picture look a little plain. That's
just how I like mine. You can always add other things and we will get into that on the actual recipe.
First, the story than the recipe.
It was game day and. of course, we had to have nachos. What's football without junk
food, fight? Originally, my husband was the first to arrange this wonderful mountain of gooeyness.
He seasoned and grilled the chicken. He also talked me into adding beans. Since then I have taken
over the duties of nacho making. Yes, I realize that bean is usually on nachos, but I never cared for
them until my dear hubby talked me into giving them another try. Now, I can't go without them.
The game itself wasn't very exciting to me. I guess I was still a little bitter after my
the team lost horribly that last playoff game. Can you guess which team? I'll give you a hint: Green and
yellow is their colors. That's right. The Green Bay Packers! They were so close and it seemed like
they just gave up that last game. Oh well, there's always next year.
This recipe is super simple and very yummy. The kids will love it just as much as the
