Patriotic Nachos!

Blue Corn Chips, Red Tomatoes, White Sour Cream make this Red, White & Blue!

Sometimes the celebrations bring on all the sweets and treats.  But I have the perfect, economical, filling, quick and portable take-anywhere-food for the festivities!

It screams Red, White and Blue so your taste buds can celebrate with fireworks too.

Heat the chili up hot, pour into a thermos to serve up at any party, picnic, parade with friends and family.

Red,  White & Blue Nachos


Blue Corn Tortialla chips

Chili – canned or my very simple flavorful and hearty recipe that follows

Condiments – chopped tomato, sliced green onion, grated cheese, sour cream, sliced olives, etc.

To make my very simple chili that is hearty in flavor and comes together fast, in a pan combine:

2 large cans of chili

14 oz. can Salsa Style diced fired roasted diced tomatoes (gives flavor and a bit of a kick, but not too much, or whatever flavor you prefer)

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

Heat through.  Red, White & Blue Nachos 2 Directions:

Lay down chips, spoon on some chili, then top with your favorite condiments and presto, it’s the almost as good as the Eighteen Twelve Overture with Cannon –  a staple at our local fireworks show:)Red, White & Blue Nachos 3
