It is September and the weather is starting to get a bit
cooler here in Pennsylvania. Kids and
teachers are going back to school and after-school activities are starting up
again. Why not try these sheet pan
nachos to usher in the cooler weather and football season? This recipe is very versatile as you can add
whatever toppings you like to the base.
You can use ground beef, turkey, or chicken for these nachos. Just make sure you cook it first before
putting it on top of the nacho chips.
Take 1 lb. of ground meat and fry in a pan until no pink is
left. Drain the grease out of the pan if
necessary. Grab a taco seasoning packet
and sprinkle on top of your ground meat.
Stir in as much water as directed on the seasoning packet and cook until
all water is evaporated.
Take a sheet pan and cover with a layer of nachos. Sprinkle the ground meat on top and added
shredded cheese to your liking. I use
cheddar, but there are some really good Tex-Mex cheese mixtures in the stores
that you can use as well.
Put the sheet pan under the broiler in your oven for a few
minutes. Pay careful attention so your
food doesn’t get burnt! I’m notorious
for putting something in the oven and then walking away! Yikes!
Take out of the oven and add any toppings you want to
it: red onions, black beans, guacamole,
sour cream, corn, etc. Or serve the
toppings in individual bowls so people can pick and choose what they want on
I’ve had a request from my son to use Doritos as the nacho chips. Stay tuned to my social media channels for a picture of Incredible Sheet Pan Doritos coming soon!!
Memorial Day has come and gone, and with it, most of the food I had prepared. Do you have picnic leftovers, too? Everything was gone, except for two red, white, and blue deviled eggs and hot dogs. I had five hot dogs leftover. I was tired of chips and pretzels, which is what we usually have with our doggies. I needed to find something else to pair with hot dogs without running out to the grocery store. I came up with my rendition of Italian Pasta Salad.
What says Memorial Day or Fourth of July better than red, white, and blue deviled eggs? Perfect side dish for summertime picnics and get togethers. I used this recipe, and despite an almost Pinterest Fail on my part, I think they turned out rather nice looking! Oh, and they taste great as well
Yes, I said it. I’m a lazy cook. I wish I didn’t have to cook, but my family likes to eat. So I try to make things as easy as possible for myself in the kitchen. I paired this salad with hot dogs for a meal and it was well worth the 5 minutes it took me to make!
With all the dreary weather we have been having in Pennsylvania this week, I was feeling hungry for some comfort food. I had leftover corn on the cob and turned it into Corn Casserole. One of my favorite ways to cook is to find leftovers I may have in the refrigerator and repurpose them into something else.
