Anyhoo, back to the party menu. My family always gathers on Sundays to watch the games, and the Super Bowl is no different. And no game-day party is complete without a big spread of nachos. Am I right, or am I right?
Here's what we put on our nachos in the Sweet B household:
- cheddar cheese
- black beans
- reduced-fat refried beans
- shredded lettuce
- tomatoes, diced
- green onions, diced
- sour cream
But...sometimes, we (cough, because I have some crazy need to constantly change up Mr. B's favorites, cough) tire of our same-old nachos and crave something different. Enter the baked potato.
Just take whatever you throw on your nachos, and throw it on some baked potato wedges. Ah yes. Genius, I know.
I love nachos. I love baked potatoes...loaded. So I had the bright idea one day, when I discovered Mr. B had already devoured the recently-purchased bag of tortilla chips, to throw some potato wedges into the oven and top with my nacho favorites. And tada! Potato Nachos!
The "Baked Potato "Part
Just cut some potatoes into wedges (as thick or as thin as you like), toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, and then spread onto a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Flip potatoes over and bake another 20 minutes or until done.
Add your favorite toppings, then add cheese.
Place under the broiler for 2 minutes, and then finish off with a dollop of sour cream, salsa, or guacamole (or whatever floats your boat).
Check back tomorrow for another
Super Bowl Party menu idea!
With Love and God Bless,
