Happy Cinco de Mayo! This year Joe and I are sharing a mountain of nachos with all our favorite toppings. These nachos have a little bit of everything to tempt your taste buds, starting with spicy ground beef and green chile cheese sauce. Then there’s the avocado corn pico with pickled jalapenos and a few black olives to top it off. Bring a fork because as you make your way through these nachos it’s like a towering Jenga, you pull out a chip and find the toppings shifting and sometimes topple. Nachos are just fun to eat and Cinco de Mayo is the best excuse to make up a platter. If you double the ground beef, you can make tacos on the side. Win Win!!

Want to dress up an ordinary pork chop . . . add some cheese and pico de gallo with avocado and corn. It will definitely make your taste buds happy. Add a baked potato or a side green salad and you’ve got a complete meal. My family used to cringe when I made pork, they complained it was dry and didn’t have any flavor. Since then I’ve found ways to make pork more tender and juicy. For myself, I’ve found that if I soak the pork in a brine of water, salt and sugar for at least an hour it makes a much more tender pork chop. I seasoned them with a tasty salt blend and added a topping of pico de gallo with avocado and corn. There were no complaints or any leftovers either for that matter.
