My husband and I were in college, when we first started dating.
So fancy steakhouses, Michelin-starred restaurants… yeah, that wasn’t really our style. Remember, poor college students.
For my birthday, he’d take me to a restaurant that was like the sushi equivalent of PF Chang’s, but that was absolutely as fancy as we got.
But for us, going out was usually more like, hey let’s go to Costco and get the $1.50 hot dog and soda, AND get a slice of everything pizza!
Or we can go pick up some kubideh from the to-go counter in the grocery store… or maybe pancakes at IHOP…
But if we’re really feeling like something special? Del Taco nachos.
We never went to Del Taco for anything else, but those nachos? We loved them so much.
Nachos are one of our go-to easy meals when there’s nothing else to eat. At the very least, we always have tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and canned black beans on hand (we especially like these Fiesta Beans!), so it’s an easy, satisfying, somewhat healthy meal.
And if you have more toppings – like bacon, sausage, ground meat, cilantro, salsa… then it’s super easy to jazz up to your liking!
- tortilla chips
- mexican cheese blend
- a can of cooked black beans
- cooked, crumbled bacon
- fried eggs
- sour cream
- On a parchment-lined baking sheet, layer tortilla chips, cheese, and black beans. Toast in a toaster oven until bubbly.
- Top with crumbled bacon, fried eggs, cilantro, sour cream, salsa, or any other toppings of your choice.
