How was 2015 for you? Kinda shitty? Super great? I’m guessing a mix of both? Even though I put off an air of perfection (lol) I’m gonna be honest and say I had some rough spots this year. Things got dark for a while. There were tears and desperate texts to sweet friends who didn’t write me off (you know who you are and I love you). Why don’t things ever go as I plan them anymore? Maybe planning is overrated. Either way, I’m ready to say sayonara and move on.
But not before…..NACHOS!!!
Not often does a nachos recipe start off with, Day 1: but this is New Year’s and we know how to have fun!
I know, I know nachos are a dish best slap-dashed together….sometimes.
Nachos for New Year’s however takes precision, takes planning, takes soaking a big hunka beef in sour achiote sauce and roasting it real slow for at least 4 hours until the meat and onions are soaked in a burnt sienna hue and falling apart at the seams.
Therefore, nachos for New Year’s must be started on Day 1 and completed on Day 2 or at least have a very long Day 1 where you roast the beef all day and finish the nachos for dinner that night. I mean to-night, because what better way to say good-bye to 2015 than crunchy tortilla chips topped with aforementioned succulent beef, fresh chunks of crab meat, goat cheese, and as many flurries of scallions and cilantro as one can handle?
Wanna make it a New Year’s Fiesta to remember? Here’s some other ideas to go along with your fancy nachos! Be safe, have fun and I’ll see you in 2016!
