I have learned many things along this rocky road called life! The most important thing I've learned is that I needed a Savior long ago! I felt so lost before the Lord found me and I opened up my heart to Him. Many things were coming at me, not the least of which was a voice telling me that my life wasn't worth going on for! When the Lord found me, He saved me from this lying voice! I invited Him into my home and my heart! From then on it's been Him and I in all things. My hope for you is that if you are on that same rocky road that I was on, empty, wondering if it's worth it to go on, you too will invite the Lord to save you. He will show you that your life is worth living for Him!

      Hahaha!  Nachos

This may seem like a silly thing to write a recipe for...but here is ours and it was sooooo yummy!!

Buy the best tortilla chips you can.  Preferably from your local mexican market, like El Tapatio!

1/2-1lb. ea.  Ground Beef/Ground Turkey
They each do something for the other! The ground beef helps to flavor the ground turkey, and the ground turkey lightens up the ground beef!) 

In a bowl mix together half of each ground meat.

Chop 1 whole purple onion and saute in a good heavy duty fry pan, or your wok with a little canola oil!! 

Chop 3-4 cloves of garlic.  Add to pan and saute for 1 minute.

(Optional:  Chop and add to the pan 1 jalapeno.  Devein and deseed if desired!) 

Add ground beef/turkey mixture to pan, mix well with onions and garlic.

Brown....seasoning with the following:

Lawrys Garlic Salt;
Onion powder,
Gebhardt Chili powder

Sprinkle each seasoning across the top of the meat and mix it into the meat while in the pan!  Please don't overcook, just til pink is gone!! (Jeff's a stickler about that one!)

Heat tortilla chips on a cookie she and place in a 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes. 

Take them out and spread the following over them...

Drained browned ground beef/turkey. 
Drained whole black beans or drained homemade pinto beans. 
1 can of Ortega Chili Peppers, chopped. 
1 Can of sliced Black Olives. 
Any shredded or small chunks of queso fresco cheese you prefer.

Put cookie tray back into oven and heat until cheese is melted.  Take out and place on hot pad directly on table!

(Optional:  Add freshly chopped tomatoes or green onions to top off.  Use your favorite salsa too...we used Jalepeno Tabasco sauce!!  Spicy green goodness!! <3)

Enjoy your Nachos! family style right from the pan.

P.S. Melissa and I shared the pan of Nachos above!  Jeff had his own pan!  hahaha!!!

Luv2u!  Monica's Munchies
