Big Game Food

The Skins have a big game today. They have lost the past 3 games, and they have been playing kinda 'eh' these days but just because your team is being 'eh' doesn't mean your "game food" has to be 'eh' too.

We love nachos but none with the canned cheese like they serve typically at stadiums. Yuck. Nachos are fun because you can tweak them so many different ways.

Super Deluxe Nachos

1 lb. SHAVED beef (this is the good quality super thin sliced beef your butcher does, similar to 'steak-um beef' but don't use that unless you are desperate.)
1 envelope Taco Seasoning
1 cup frozen corn
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
shredded cheese
Your favorite tortilla chips
Fresh salsa (I usually make my own but the summer tomatoes are gone)
Chopped Jalapenos (I used three, seeded and deveined)
Sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook your beef with Taco seasoning. Add corn so it will thaw. When beef is cooked add beans. Cover baking sheet with non stick foil. Layer chips on foil and hearty handfuls of cheese. Add layer of hot beef and corn mixture. Add more cheese on top of beef. Place in oven just long enough to melt cheese. About 10 minutes.
Sprinkle on fresh salsa, scoops of sour cream and jalapenos (don't forget all dairy is the ANTIDOTE for the jalapeno evils).

YUM! Have plenty of napkins, your favorite beverage of choice and you will have a happy tummy regardless of how your team plays!

My butcher doesnt offer it :(
But I am totally digging these Nachos! I would have never thought to use shaved beef!

Looks amazing! I love the shaved beef idea instead of ground!

Well I don't go to a butcher but those 'dudes' in the grocery (who wear the white coats) make packages of shaved beef. Well Leslie, I suggest you rent a food slicer (or borrow one from your lazy butcher) freeze some beef and do it yourself- you crazy go-getter you! This shaved beef makes better philly cheese steaks and awesome stir fry!!!

YUM we love loaded up nachos too. We don't have shaved beef either, I'll have to find a meat counter that might do that (all ours are "in the back" where you can't see them. PS. I love that gooey nacho cheese dip. lol

Ugh...I can't stand the nacho "cheese" at stadiums! This looks 29573835 times better.
