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!!

A couple years ago we ate at Old Chicago which is a chain restaurant here in the Kansas City area, maybe you have one too. They are best known for their pizza and calzones which are huge and taste fantastic. Josh had this “Texican Calzone” that he just raved about and wanted to get again. Next time we were there the menu had changed and it was no longer available. He never forgot that calzone and so I did some research, found an old menu with the description and went about trying to break it down so that I could make it for him. I think I hit the jackpot because he was all smiles when these came out of the oven. Just wait until you slice into the inside, you’ll see what I mean.
