Day 21- Steak Nachos


October 9, 2012 by chicagogrilling365

It was a windy Tuesday afternoon in ol’ Chicago, but with the help of my pal lighter fluid we got the grill started. Today I made good hangover food: steak nachos.

The one thing that sucks about living in a highly Hispanic neighborhood is that you can’t find pre-made guacamole or pico de gallo. I’m sorry but that bottle and a half of wine I drank last night was not motivation for making homemade guacamole.

After watching one of my favorite episode of Bones I scurried off to Andy’s Fresh Market to get my ingredients. I bought a quarter pound of skirt steak, a Spanish onion, tomato, green onion, jalapeno, a lime, cilantro, and a thing called Mexican melting cheese. I already had chips at home; oh, and I bought sour cream.

Kurt told me to buy chihuahua cheese but the store didn’t have any. That’s why I  ended up buying the blob of melting cheese.

There was no way I was going to make guacamole but I did half ass a pico de gallo.

They may have been the worst nachos I’ve ever had, only because of the cheese. The “melting cheese” hardened as soon as it came outta the pan. It’s all good because I will have a lovely meal later with Jennie Childs AKA the other Jennie!

Well, three weeks down and forty-nine to go…

    Heck yeah! I can’t believe it has been 3 weeks already!

  2. Neither can we! It’s actually flown by. Got a pork loin on the grill right now. Come over for dinner!
