As most of you know, the way I usually cook is trying to figure out what to make with what I already have at home. It's relatively rare when I shop for food to make a specific recipe, although I love doing that too.
I had some leftover Chicken & Mushroom Shit on the Shingles (SOS) that I made with some chicken from a pot of stock I made last weekend. (In case you don't know what that is - it's just creamed chicken and mushrooms). I had the dregs of some tortillas chips in a bag I found in the pantry. It wasn't really enough for Nachos, but I found some frozen thin slices of French baguette. I had some cheddar cheese. I had a new package of Queso Fresco, which I've never tried before. And I had 2 half bags of taco seasoning mix left on the spice rack. Yep, You guessed it!! I made chicken nachos!!
Shit on the Shingles went into a sauce pan with some shredded cheddar and the taco season mix. Ooey gooey yumminess!
The tortilla chips went into the center of the skillet and were surrounded by some French baguette slices brushed with olive oil. The newly seasoned and "cheesy" chicken SOS topped the chips and the bread slices. Then it all got topped with some more shredded cheddar and some crumbled Queso Fresco. Under the broiler it went!! Maybe 5 minutes! Don't take your eyes off of it!!! It will be charcoal.
Well let me tell you. I was TOTALLY satisfied!!! I couldn't even eat it all. I would have been happy if I'd been served this dish at a restaurant, except I would have paid +/- $15.00 for it. I made it with leftovers and pantry items. Want more details? Jus ask me.
