Nacho Tacos

It’s no secret that we love Mexican food around here. There’s always at least one night a week where we have Mexican food, or Mexican inspired food. I know plenty of folks who have Taco night or Taco Tuesdays. Perhaps you’re one of them? Or maybe you just like the flavors of Mexican food as much as I do? In either case, I’ve got this great, easy and fun spin on tacos for your next fiesta. Nacho Tacos!

As usual with tacos, the toppings are endless. Use your favorite toppings. To make this a Nacho Taco, you will definitely need to cheese sauce. Don’t worry it’s ridiculously easy. This recipe is super easy, not very time consuming at all, and therefore, prefect for weeknights. You know… like Taco Tuesday!

My family absolutely loved this, including the kids. They like building their own tacos, and who doesn’t like nachos?! It’s a marriage made in heaven! To go along with our Nacho Tacos, I served up some Easy Mexican Salsa Rice, a wonderful and simple recipe I found over at Six Sister’s Stuff. When you’re done here, you  might go check that recipe out. It’s incredibly simple and incredibly yummy! So what are you waiting for? Go make these delicious Nacho Tacos for your family. I hope they enjoy them as much as we did!

South of the Border Hot Dogs – #SundaySupper

My wonderful #SundaySupper family has put Creative Hot Dogs on this Sunday’s menu. I love hot dogs! I swear I could live off of them. There are so many great ways you can serve up hot dogs, or include them in your meals. They are more versatile than one might think, as you’re about to find out. This is all largely thanks to our wonderful event hosts Stacy from Food Lust People Love and Mary Ellen from Recipes, Food & Cooking.

So lets do this! Fire up the grill, prepare the microwave, pre-heat the oven, get out your roasting sticks and light that fire! However it is you like cooking your hot dogs. I’ve got some South of the Border goodness for you that you are going to want to give a try! Your family will love this. If you don’t like spicy food, don’t worry, you control the heat. Make it super spicy, medium spicy or not at all spicy. You pick!

Personally, I enjoy hot dogs on the grill, or roasted over a fire. For this recipe we grill them, but you can cook them any way you wish. But first, you’ll want to prepare the taco meat. I used ground beef, but you can use ground turkey if you wish to cut down on the fat. Just brown it up, and then add a packet of taco seasoning and the water called for on the packet. Simmer as per the instructions on the packet.

While you’re preparing the taco meat, you can get the cheese sauce heating up in a small saucepan. All it is, is a can of condensed Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup. It was a bit too thick for my liking, which you can tell after it gets warmer. I just added a tiny bit of water at a time until it got to where I wanted it. One can is plenty of cheese sauce for 8 hot dogs, but I used two cans because I served some of the cheese sauce on top of fries to go along with this delicious hot dog.

Once the taco meat is cooked, and the cheese sauce is heated through, you can put them both on low, slap a lid on the pot and pan, and all that’s left to do is grill those dogs and build it! Split the hot dog bun, liberally spread guacamole over the inside of the bun. Then add your hot dog, top with taco meat, cheese sauce, crushed Doritos, and any other taco toppings your little heart desires, like red onion, sliced black olives, jalapenos, salsa, etc. The sky is the limit! You may want a fork and knife for this one.

Now dig in, and enjoy! Perhaps serve it like I did, alongside some cheesy fries. YUM!
