Super Easy Super Bowl Nacho Feast – With Guacamole and Pico de Gallo

I ran a practice play on this feast for the semi-finals and it scored a game saving munchdown!

Football’s grand and all, but there are only two things that can take the edge off spending up to four straight hours watching men crouching, running, jumping, crouching, running…  sweet sweet spandex, and a fabulous plate full of flavours!

Nachos
– 1 large bag tortilla chips (I used Tostitos restaurant style)
– ½ red onion
– 1 green pepper
– 1 red pepper
– 3 jalapeños (you can go as hot as you want here)
– 4 green onions
– ½ rotisserie chicken shredded
(or send in a sub. with the equivalent amount of ground beef)
– 1 package taco seasoning (those magical little envelopes of flavour)
– grated mound of your fave cheese


***Strip that chicken down, grab a sauce pan and prepare meat according to taco package instructions. Chop all veggies and set aside (keeping green onion for garnish). Grate cheese. Layer chips, veggies, meat, and cheese in a large casserole dish. Cook in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. Serve with sour cream and your fave salsa. Munchdown!

Pico de Gallo
(I was aiming to recreate the flavours in Wendy’s Baja Salad Pico de Gallo)
– ½ red onion
– 2 small tomatoes
– ¼ cup chopped parsley
– 1 lime (lemon juice will work)
– salt to taste

***Chop onion and tomatoes, add parsley, a good squeeze of lime juice, and salt.

Guacamole
– 2 fork mashed avocados
– ½ white onion
– 1 small tomato
– 1 lime
– salt to taste

***Add finely chopped onion and tomato to avocado, squeeze in lime juice and a sprinkle of salt. Post game confession time: While the nachos and pico de gallo are Saving Cymbria originals, I used this excellent recipe to get the guac started (but left out the garlic due to a certain personal trauma).
