Some of you may see me on facebook and you might notice that I post pictures there before I write the post over here. Its a new bad habit I have developed since facebook does not require that I type whereas the blog taxes me creatively. I know what you are thinking "there isnt much creativity here on this blog just a lot of snarky crap" well I have news for you - creativity comes in many guises and so do nachos.
As a parent it is our job to create positive memories for our children and I do this through food. Seriously what better memories are there? My son has been eating "nacho cheese with nacho chips" since he first coined that term 7 years ago. I have always made the chips myself because the crunch and chew of a fresh tortilla chip has no equal.
Blue and yellow corn tortillas get cut into triangles and fried while I melt some cheese into a thick sauce to pour over the piled high mound. I add either some salsa or pico de gallo before drizzling the hot cheesy goodness and lately I have been making things "kamikaze" style where I hide some piece or pieces of really hot chile as a little "surprise" that he totally loves. What are your favorite food memories?
