Cooking & Crafting 2013 – ULTIMATE NACHOS!

Ultimate Nachos

Did you know that Wednesday, November 6 was National Nacho Day?

Anne did and it gave her a perfect excuse to test one of the recipes in ULTIMATE NACHOS as part of our recently launched Cooking & Crafing series. (Not that she needs much excuse to make anything Southwestern, being from Tucson...)


From the 84 recipes for salsa, guacamole, cheese sauces, nachos (both savory AND sweet!), and drinks (Margaritas! Horchata!), Anne chose to make BBQ Chicken Nachos to eat during Monday Night Football. Unfortunately, she was in such a rush to get the chow ready for kickoff that she forgot to take step-by-step photos of the magical chip/chicken/cheese creation! There is one of the finished product, just before she added sour cream, avocado and cilantro to individual portions.
