Some days I don’t want a big meal – but I’m hungry. Like today. I don’t want a hamburger or even chicken for lunch. I decided to make some fucking excellent NACHOS, baby!
This was easy and I got lucky about having all the ingredients needed already bought and in my refrigerator. I got sharp cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, refried beans, fresh salsa, chopped sweet onions, a sliced jalepeno and my favorite tortilla chips, On the Border chips.
The hardest thing for me to figure out about Mexican cooking was how to deal with an avocado and how to deal with refried beans. I knew they couldn’t be hard to do, but I never knew anything about Mexican food when I was growing up except for once in a great while my mom would drive through Taco Bell and get a dozen tacos for us kids.
I found some links on YouTube about cooking. Now I can do nachos, tacos, burritos and enchiladas. Working on learning even more authentic Mexican food, too. I fucking love this stuff!
