Did you watch the Super Bowl last night? Who were you pulling for? We had a few family members over and enjoyed various Super Bowl foods. Little Buddy helped Daddy make nachos for everyone. Here’s a post from Mr. Handsome:
Growing up in a family of nine, nachos meant heating up a glass jar of Tostitos nacho cheese in the microwave and dipping chips in it. It was absolutely delicious, but it was also full of preservatives and lacked any sophistication and creativity.
When we got married, Ellie introduced me to the world of homemade nachos with tons of delicious toppings, like peppers, tomatoes, beans, and sour cream. We posted the recipe back in 2017.
For the meat, Little Buddy and I used pulled pork that we bought at a fundraiser for the local wrestling team. It’s a really neat fundraiser where all the boys on the team get together with their coach and smoke a bunch of pork shoulders on an open pit fire. We were happy to support the team and end up with a delicious meal.
The only hiccup occurred when I chopped up a tomato and put in on the nachos. Unfortunately, Little Buddy had thought that the tomato was for him to eat, and he started crying when I put in on the nachos. It took several minutes to calm him down and get him another tomato. Also, the fact that our son likes to eat raw tomatoes is a testament to all the hard work that Ellie has done to help him enjoy healthy foods. What kid just eats raw tomatoes? Until we had our son, I had never met one.
Here are some pictures we took while making the nachos:
