I think it’s time for me to expand my blog, I’m thinking of adding more post about recent recipes I’ve made and maybe even adding some post on fashion.
Even though I’m not the best cook/baker, I do get told by people that I’m a good “housewife.” (Housewife used loosely here, since I do work a 40 hour work week).
But I guess it’s safe to say that I have mastered some good domestic skills throughout my years.
I think sharing some of my quick dinner recipes and unique fashion/decorating designs might be fun, since those who read my blog seem to be in the same stage of their life as I am. (newlyweds, 1st time homeowners, on a budget, 20somethings).
So I’ve decided to attempt to do my first recipe post.
Matt and I both work very long days, so I usually don’t even get to start dinner till around 6:30ish. Most of my dinners are fast and easy! (Less is more, in this house, hon.)
Nacho Grande is a classic Mexican dish in our household, which I will never get sick of.
My sister literally learned how to make this in her 7th grade food class and I forbid giving it up! Ha!
It’s so easy, fast and tasty.
You will need:
1 pound of ground beef
1 can of refried beans
1 jar of Salsa
1 bag of Tortilla Chips
1 bag of shredded cheese
(onion and green pepper can be cut up and added to your ground beef, if you like)
1.) Put oven on 350 degrees
2.) Cook ground beef until brown. (If you like, add onion and green pepper to ground beef)
3.) Once ground beef is brown, drain grease and add your taco seasoning and 1 cup of water
(if you don’t like taco seasoning/spicy food you do not need to add it to the beef)
4.) Put refried beans in the microwave for 2 minutes or until hot
5.) Put foil on your cookie sheet and then put a layer of tortilla chips down
6.) On top of tortilla chips add refried beans
7.) Add your jar of salsa
8.) Add your cooked ground beef
9.) Top is off with cheese
10.) Put in oven for about 10minutes or until cheese is melted
11.) Serve with sour cream on top and extra chips
Add some sour cream and enjoy!
This is such a great dish to make on a weekday night after a long day at the office.
Let me know if anyone attempts this! :-)
