One of the most common questions people ask about this blog is how I decide what to make. The answer is as simple as "whatever I feel like eating at the moment (and is within my capabilities to cook)". The execution of those whimsies is another story. A lot of posts sit perpetually unpublished because I'm unhappy with one thing or another, sometimes I try to make a more creative variation on a classic dish and by the time the recipe is perfected, I don't want to eat it anymore. But there's always some success among the many attempts and this post is a great example of when the process works!
I've been having some really strange food obsessions lately, with special emphasis on nachos, banana shakes, and red meat, none of which are foods that I have ever in my life craved or sought out with such fervor until the last few weeks, separately of course (although...steak nachos with a side of banana shake? Sign me up). Today's recipe is a manifestation of the nacho obsession, which started on super bowl sunday and has yet to show signs of diminishing. They're loaded with cheese and all the best veggie toppings for a fun snack or meal. I decided to go sans meat to give them a fresher, lighter vibe, but you can alter them to your heart's content since nachos don't really need a recipe. They're just so goshdang colorful and delicious that I had to share. Hope you guys enjoy.
