My friend, Richard, is lauded for his nachos. Seriously, these are a work of art and a lovely way to clog your arteries and digestive tract.

Nacho Night is the way to celebrate anything. The most recent being a time with friends and watching the latest Sherlock. Nachos and Benedict Cumberbatch – BLISS! These wonderful things also come out for birthdays, receptions, and any most any reason someone says, “Hey, can we do _____ and eat your nachos?”

Here’s the start:

Assemble all ingredients – ground beef, sausage, blue corn chips, white corn chips, refried beans, taco seasoning, grated cheddar cheese, chopped olives, etc.

Put the first layer of blue corn chips down. Cover with half the beans, meat, shredded cheese, olives, etc. Bake.

Make a second layer of yumminess! Bake.

Frost with sour cream.

Eat. Laugh. Enjoy. Eat some more. Feel your stomach say, “No more! Please!” and your taste buds demanding, “More! More! More!”

Die the sweetest death possible.

    I miss this kitchen along with all the love and tastiness that comes forth from it.

    Wow – I never thought my nachos would be the subject of somebody’s blog post. Here’s the recipe as I conceive of it:

    Large bag blue chips
    Large bag white or yellow chips
    2lbs ground beef
    2lbs sausage (level of spiciness up to personal preference)
    1 packet taco seasoning
    1lb cheddar cheese
    2 cans (16oz.) black olives
    2 tubs Gehls nacho cheese sauce
    1 large tub sour cream

    Brown beef and sausage; drain fat. Mix in taco seasoning and whatever amount water is necessary/desired; cook till meat is seasoned. While meat is cooking, drain/chop olives and grate cheese.

    Spread bag of blue chips in a large baking dish; spoon half of meat mixture over the top, followed by half of the cheddar cheese, a tub of the nacho cheese sauce, and half of the olives. Bake in a 350 degree oven until melted (about 10 minutes). Spread white chips over the existing layer, followed by remainder of meat, cheese, nacho cheese sauce, and olives. Bake until melted. Pull out of the oven, and – as Laura so accurately puts it – frost with sour cream.

    Substitute meat with refried beans for a vegetarian option. For a vegan option… Eh, good luck.
