the art of nachos

A Creative Life, comfort food, food for thought, Not-So-Sketchy-Food, sketchbook

Being a busy professional artist I’m fond of “quick fix” meals that are both yummy and fairly healthy – I’m feeding my creative-mental-beast after all! So, by special request (Thanks Laura!) here in this post is my favorite nacho’s recipe.

I like to make my nachos as artistically colorful as possible so as I’m piling the ingredients on – sometimes (in addition to the ingredients below) I’ll include spinach leaves, and chopped red bell pepper chunks to make it have a colorful contrast.  I like the dark olives against the white mozzarella too. The “ready to use beans” mentioned in the recipe are described in this blog post here: https://sueclancy.com/2016/10/17/best-artistic-life-trick/    and make a nice background color along with the yellow corn chips and the light green onion and the dark green jalapeno…

And yes, this recipe is written like you see here in ink and color pencil in one of my sketchbooks.

Oh, and the cast-iron griddle technique really is the “secret sauce” for my nachos!  Enjoy!!
