We loved these. I was kinda lazy so I put everything in my food chopper(green onion, red bell pepper, and onion). Since it pulverized everything, I used tomato paste for the tomato. Were great, kinda like a thick salsa. Also used a monterey jack-cheddar blend. Didn't take a pic as I thought it LOOKED kinda bad- but now I realize I should've because it was GOOD.Made these the last night of ZWT5 for The Groovy Gastrognomes & Family Picks.
I had left over taco meat from making enchiladas last night, half a can or so of refried beans sitting in the refrigerator waiting to be used, a little bit of sour cream that was about to expire, a tomato that was getting over-ripe, some green onions & olives that I had chopped up to garnish last night's dinner - I saw this recipe and thought WHAT A GREAT IDEA! I had some multi-grain Tostitos in the pantry, spread them out on an ovenproof plate, slathered on some beans and meat, and covered the whole thing with shredded medium cheddar cheese. I put the sour cream, black olives, green onions and tomatoes in the middle of the table and hubby & I dressed our own plates (we each had our own gigantic mound of cheesy goodness) as we wished. GREAT recipe! I used my oven instead of the microwave. There are endless variations to this recipe - just loved it! Perfect for a quick lunch! Made for Family Picks, ZWT5 for the Groovy GastroGnomes!
This was the only chicken nachos recipe I saw in the all player book so I had to give this a try. This was great for using up all the odds and ends I have here after cooking so much Mexican food for the tour. I used everything you suggested here with my cheese being a reduced fat blend of cheddar and Monterrey Jack. Then, I piled even more on with a bit of refried beans, a bit of guacamole, tiny bit of avocado I had left over and then made sure I had sour cream spritzed with a bit of lime ready for dunking. Made for the Family Picks portion of ZWT5 for Chow Hounds.

I have two wonderful kids,6 and 12, my youngest loves to help in the kitchen. His specialties are homemade noodles and macaroni salad. My daughter loves all things macaroni and cheese! <br> In the summers, we spend a lot of time at the lake and on our four-wheelers. The littlest has started T-ball this year, and we are getting a big kick out of watching those little guys play. DD is into basketball and is my biggest helper. <br>I am not a baker. However; I have found many delicious recipes on this site that are challenging my baking abilities. My kids are encouraging me to keep polishing up my baking skills! <br>I love to collect cookbooks! Finding this site was a stroke of luck. Now, I can keep all my favorite recipes in one place, and put the less used books away to make room for new ones! <br><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/i-connected-125.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket></a> <br><img src=http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii31/bleupantry/RecipeZaar%20and%20other%20Food/Top%20Favs%20of%202008%20GAME/ParticipationBanner.jpg> <br><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/potluckpbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg> <br><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br> <br><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg> <br><a href=http://www.flickr.com/photos/26630178@N05/3510953178/ title=banner3 by *sparkly*, on Flickr><img src=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3387/3510953178_b35b3086a8.jpg width=500 height=250 alt=banner3 /></a>
