Nachos

For the Pico de Gallo:

  • 3 cups seeded and diced plum tomatoes (about 4 medium sized tomatoes)
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro (about 1/2 bunch)
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onion (about half an onion)
  • Juice from 1 regular-sized lime
  • Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Add salt to taste.
  • Cover and refrigerate while preparing the rest of the ingredients to allow the flavors to develop.

For the Chipotle Cream:

  • 1 cup sour cream plus chipotles (pureed)

For the Taco Beef:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup red kidney beans (we used canned ones)
  • 1 package taco seasoning (we used Old El Paso 35g)
  • Put the 1 pound ground beef in a skillet on medium heat until it turns brown (approximately 7-8 minutes).
  • Add the cup of kidney beans and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the taco seasoning and follow the instructions on the package. Set aside.

Assembly:

  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese

  • 1 regular sized avocado, diced
  • 1 regular sized jalapeño, sliced
  • Mix all your cheese in a bowl.

Preheat your oven to 350F. Prep a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

Assembly:

  1. Assemble your nachos in layers: half your tortilla chips; half your cooked beef; half your mixed cheese and half your black olives. Repeat
  2. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with jalapenos, green peppers, avocados, and fresh Pico de Gallo. Top with Sour Cream (Chipotle)

Jalapeno Popper Pasta Salad

 

5ABC5990-D5CB-4D59-83A8-7080848E820A.jpeg

 
Jalapeno Popper Pasta Salad has all the flavor of a jalapeno popper. Makes a spicy, creamy picnic side.
 
Course Side Dish
 
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
 
Servings 8
Ingredients
  • 1 (16-ounce) box elbow pasta
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise, divided
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced jalapenos, drained (you could use pickled jalapenos or fresh jalapenos instead)
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I use a combo of cheddar and Pepper Jack)
Instructions
  • Cook pasta to al dente in salted water. Drain well.
  • While pasta is cooking, stir together cream cheese, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, pepper, and garlic powder in a large bowl until mostly smooth. (It's ok if cream cheese isn't fully blended in.)
  • Once pasta is drained, let it cool a few minutes, and then add it to mayonnaise mixture. It should still be very warm and the heat will help smooth out the cream cheese. Stir well.
  • Mix in jalapenos, green onions. bacon, and shredded cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Just before serving, mix in the remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  2. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cranberries and the walnuts, and toss to coat. Stir in the butter, beaten eggs, and almond extract. If you are using frozen cranberries, the mixture will be very thick. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
