Nachos - Not Just for Cinco de Mayo
When you think of Nachos do the gooey artificial cheese and overs-salted tortilla chips served at the movie concession stand come to mind? Well think again.
Today's nachos offer the opportunity to enjoy marinated, grilled or smoked meats, topped with homemade guacamole and different salsas, cheese, beans, sour cream, olives, and whatever else you fancy. Nachos are a the perfect dish for sharing, and their savory and hearty flavors pair well with your favorite beer or margarita concoctions. For a healthier alternative, make a taco salad by serving toppings over a bed of crispy lettuce and fresh tomatoes in lieu of tortilla chips.
So next Game day, invite some friends over for nachos, beer, and margaritas. This is a menu where you can effortlessly enjoy the party instead of laboring over the meal preparation.
