Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!
Any holiday that people associate with food and drinks is my kind of holiday, so today I am going to share with you how I make chicken nachos and my basic guacamole that you can add your favorites too.
First – Chicken Nachos
Here is what you will need:
– package of chicken breast tenderloins
– packet of taco seasoning
– can of enchilada sauce
– can of black beans
– block of colby jack cheese
– 1/4 cup sliced black olives
– 1/4 cup chopped red onion
– 1/4 cup seeded diced tomatoes
– tub of sour cream
– bag of tortilla chips
Here is what you need to do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cook chicken tenders in a little olive oil and 1/2 of the packet of taco seasoning. Remove when done and place to side.
Stir in enchilada sauce to pan with the other 1/2 of taco seasoning and bring to a slight boil.
Shred chicken with two forks and add to sauce. Cook on low for 5 minutes to get everything combined.
Time to Assemble!!
Shred your cheese. Lay a thick layer of chips on an oven proof dish and top with half of the cheese. Then place chicken, black beans and olives all around. Sprinkle remaining cheese all over top and bake for 10 minutes. I did add a couple of jalapeño slices to one side because I had them and love them with the nachos. My kids are not a fan, so I don’t always add them. When cheese is all melted, take out of oven and sprinkle top with red onion and diced tomatoes and serve.
So Yummy 😉
Now – My Basic Guacamole
Here is what you need:
– 2 ripe hass avacado
– 1 juicy lime
– 1 clove of garlic minced
– 5 dashes of tabasco green pepper sauce
– small handful of chopped cilantro
– salt and pepper to your taste
Here is what your need to do:
Chop up your avocado and squeeze lime over top. Add your garlic, green pepper sauce, cilantro, salt & pepper and mix well. This recipe can be doubled or tripled for a larger crowd.
This guacamole is fine on its own and even yummier with add ins. I chopped up some tomato and red onion to add to mine.
Enjoy and have a great day!!
Happy Birthday Jeff
You will be forever missed!!!
