Tried my hand at doing Mexican for the first time ever and ended up with this.... 

 

The foundation and some homemade guacamole. I got NFI what guacamole is supposed to taste like, never done it before....it ended up tasting flat, like it was missing something.I noticed some recipes include Tabasco. So I added a good dash of Tabasco and a fair whack of lime juice and it perked it up nicely.

Beef, Kidney Beans, chopped onion, crushed tomatoes and a decent helping of Cumin, Coriander, Cayenne pepper and Chilli flakes simmering away

This is how far  I got before throwing in the towel

That's my dinner for the rest of the month taken care of!   :D 

 

As we all know, Mexican food kicks ass, and thus this can be the official nacho thread. Show us your wizardry!

HK you couldn't have started a more awesome thread.

 

Maybe my eye's are playin' tricks on me but did you put cheese sauce/queso splooge on the already cheesed nachos?

 

I call that whole 'thang goodern hell!

 

For what its worth. Guac can be as simple as smashe avo's, fresh lime juice, and salt but you can add whatever else you like i.e. hot sauce,(of course) fresh chile's,(even better) garlic, onions, tomato, even cheese sauce! Some people even put (gasp) mayonaisse in it but I don't call that guac while others insist it is. Its like the chile w/beans vs. no beans 'thang. But for realz, make and do whatcha' like.

 

Question: Aussie's?

 

Answer: f**k yeah!!!

I've been avoiding nachos recently in an attempt to shed body fat, but I may have to make some for this

Looks great!  We had fajitas last night, and now I am wishing we had converted to some NACHOS!

Fajita topped nacho's.

 

Pure Tex-Mex.

 

And God's food.

Here is my typical take on nachos.  I fry my own corn tortilla quarters for starters, wayyyy better than any bagged chips.  Then spread on a little homemade refried beens.  Top that with taco meat, though what I make for nachos is more of a picadilla since it has onion, green peppers, jalapeños and tomato in it.  Then throw on some cheddar cheese, diced onions and jalapeños.  I heat it under the broiler very quickly to melt the cheese and then add sauce and usually some cotija cheese (I was out this time).  

 

If I have leftover fajita meat (rarely happens) I usually make nachos with it.

Nice looking nachos!

 

 is more of a picadilla since it has onion, green peppers, jalapeños and tomato in it.  

 

 

Picadilla... that's a new one for me. I've never heard that word before, but this is the second time I've seen it used in 2 days. I like it. I guess I've been making picadillo for as long as I can remember and didn't know it. We've always just called it taco meat.

 

Goes to show ya learn something new every day. :cool:

Y'all most welcome to pop on over to my place to try some :D Only just managed to finish it off after having it for dinner, then lunch the next day and dinner again. 

 

That Looks delish count.

Some people even put (gasp) mayonaisse in it but I don't call that guac while others insist it is. Its like the chile w/beans vs. no beans 'thang. But for realz, make and do whatcha' like.

 

Question: Aussie's?

 

Answer: f**k yeah!!!

 

I finished off the Guacamole the next day after leaving it in the fridge overnight and it tasted completely different. By then it had a nice tang and spice, it's as if it had come alive! Looks like you just have to leave it for a while to infuse the flavours. Ended up being quite happy with it.

Made myself a little snack the other night at work.  Tortilla chips, cheddar jack cheese, steak meat (for our cheesesteaks) and pickled jalapenos.  Not pictured the I Dare You Stoopid salsa from Puckerbutt that went over top as I pulled some apart.

That's it, say goodbye to your precious bunnies....
 

 

 
Will be making a game time decision after I yank it - what to do to finish it off ...
