The Perfect Football Sunday recipe!

Ultimate Nachos
(not my actual nachos here)

Ok people....Super bowl Sunday is right around the corner and we only have this awesome day once a year. Who will be in the super bowl? Well we won't know until tomorrow's game and the predictions are all over the place. Being from Chicago, I am of course, rooting for the Chicago Bears!!!!! The New York Jets vs. Steelers and Chicago Bears vs. their rivals- The Green Bay Packers!! It's gonna be an intense day. FINGERS CROSSED!

Looking for an awesome recipe for the game or for Superbowl? I have the Ultimate Nacho recipe you HAVE to try! Who doesn't love nachos, first of all, and secondly- you won't have leftovers because this dish will not last long!


Blue Corn Tortillas(these are less greasy and more crunchy than white corn but whatever you prefer)
Fat Free Refried Beans (did you know regular fat refried beans have LARD in them? STEER CLEAR!)
1 can pickled jalapeno chilies(can be found in a can)
One or two bags of Mexican Cheese
1 can black olives
fresh cilantro
1-2lbs of boneless skinless chicken(or beef if you prefer)
1 package of taco seasoning and get the fajita chicken one if you get chicken
Fresh Haas Avocados
Sour Cream



Preheat oven 400 degrees

If you choose chicken:
dice the chicken up into small pieces and transfer onto a non-stick pan and cook through. Use taco or fajita seasoning package to season the chicken and set aside.

For beef:
Cook beef same as chicken and use taco beef seasoning and set aside.

Fill baking dish with chips and evenly cover beans over chips in dish. Sprinkle chilies all over beans(u decide how spicy you want it). Transfer the cooked chicken or beef on top and then sprinkle cheese all over that and use one bag if desired or two if you want them extra cheesy. On top of the cheese you can then sprinkle some olives.

Transfer the dish to the oven once the oven is heated.

Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is all melted.

Remove from oven and garnish with a small amount of chopped cilantro.

Throw a few dollops of sour cream on top of the nachos, chopped tomatoes, as well as the chopped avocado or you can serve all on the side.

ENJOY!!!!! You won't let your guests down :)

GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
