A few months ago, I subscribed to Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine.
I rarely pay for magazine subscriptions, but I paid for this one.
I thought it would be nice to flip through each month, and I knew in advance that the recipes would use everyday ingredients.
I thought my recipe repertoire could use some expanding.
You know, beyond the 39 cookbooks in the kitchen that I never open.
I found the following recipe (written by Emeril Lagasse) in the January/February issue. It's not the most healthy food, but I've made some adjustments to improve that.
Have a Nacho Picnic
I think these nachos would be really nice for a special weeknight treat. Wouldn't it be fun to serve this on the floor of the living room or outside on the back porch? A living room picnic or a backyard picnic, complete with a salad and some iced tea would be a perfect mid-week siesta.
Enlist Your Kids
Get the kids to help prepare these nachos! Grace is almost 3, and I can see a lot of steps that she'd be able to do. I marked them below.
I have made this same basic recipe by Emeril and my family loves it.
Yum! I'm going to have to put this on a SONday night menu. We love doing things like this!
Thank you for sharing!
I LOVE nachos! Of course, the sausage here would do me in, but I'm betting I could make it with ground beef, too! 🙂
Oh. Yum. Yum. Yum!
Have you ever tried Soy Chorizo? It is amazingly similar in taste to regular chorizo, my son the vegetarian uses it often and makes a dish just like this one.
I haven't, but I would love it. I was a vegetarian for years, and I like a lot of the meat substitutes.

T has asked me multiple times to have nachos for dinner and we never have. I like this recipe as it doesn't have a big heavy cheese sauce on it - while those cheese sauces taste good, I know they aren't great for us.

I made this just this past weekend. It was delish! 😀 Thank you for posting it!
