For 25 years Joe and I called Kansas City home. I will always be sentimental about our time in Kansas, that’s where we raised Josh and Cam and made so many good friends. Kansas City is a passionate city. They love their barbecue and they love their Chiefs! And since Kansas City is going to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, I think this is cause for a celebration. In honor of the Kansas City Chiefs I am making the ultimate super bowl dish . . . Kansas City BBQ Fries. Now you all know that Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que is about the best there is with their burnt ends, ribs, brisket and pulled pork, but what you might not know is that they make the best fries too. I remember one year when they were voted #1 for the best fries in the state of Kansas; they rewarded their customers with a free fry day and gave away an order of fries with every order. Oh my goodness, you just don’t know how good they are until you’ve tasted them. On Sunday we’ll be cheering on the Chiefs and eating some good barbecue! Hope you enjoy the day no matter who you’re rooting for!

Joe took me out recently to a new place called Red Door Grill. We were seated in the dining room right in front of a huge glass window looking into the kitchen area where the staff were preparing delectable wood fired dishes. They were grilling burgers, chicken, steak, and fish. Everything looked so tempting with wood smoke rising and open flames shooting through the huge grilling area. I was so conflicted when it came to ordering but in the end I decided on these Rojo Nachos with a green chile cheese sauce, pico de gallo, guacamole, pickled jalapenos, queso fresco and sour cream. You could also add Ancho Pulled Chicken for a couple dollars more. Yes, please!! Our server brought out a massive mound of fresh corn chips topped with all the afore mentioned favorites. I couldn’t decide where to start it was so gorgeous. It appeared that they pooled some of the cheese sauce on the bottom so that the nachos wouldn’t get soggy so quickly. Everything else was evenly piled on with so many complimenting flavors. There was no way to eat it all even with Joe helping me out. A week went by and I was still craving these nachos so I decided it was time to make my own. So what do you think . . .
