Game-day Recipe: Alamo Bowl Nachos

Game-day Recipe: Alamo Bowl Nachos:

While day dreaming about the impending college football Season, my mind began to wander past the thoughts on how my beloved Univ. of Washington (U-Dub) huskies will fare in their gauntlet of a schedule this year (facing the likes National Powerhouses: LSU, USC, Oregon and Stanford), to what tantalizing game-day snacks I would create and indulge in, while watching the games. One recipe that I intend to recreate this fall is my “Alamo Bowl Nachos”.  This recipe was born out of my love for Mexican food and the momentous occasion that was the UW Huskies vs. Baylor Bears 2012 Alamo Bowl matchup showcasing Heisman winner Robert Griffin III (RGIII) vs. upcoming and coming standout signal caller, Keith Price. While the game was an old-fashioned wild, wild west shootout which ended in Baylor and RGIII’s favor, the comfort of our tasty homemade snack prompted my friend to say….”at least we got Nachos!”

Play Call: Alamo Bowl Nachos

Formation: –1 bag of Tostitos rounds or your favorite tortilla ship

-Shredded Sharp Cheddar and Monterrey Jack Cheeses (2 cups)

-Diced white onion, black olives, and jalapeno peppers

-1-2 llbs of ground beef (or refried beans) seasoned with hot and spicy taco seasoning

X’s and O’s: Brown and season the ground beef;Load up the nachos with everything but the tomatoes and lettuce; bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes; let cool for 5 minutes, top with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sour cream and medium salsa.

Enjoy this game-day snack, and may it bring your team more luck than it did mine that day (they’re still scoring touchdowns in that game–RGIII just ran for another one…)
