Irish Pub Nachos

Ok, so they’re not Irish and they’re not really Nachos. But what they are is ooey, gooey, cheesy potato deliciousness with the spiciness of nachos. And there’s bacon (or corned beef, if you have some) sprinkled throughout. You might call this an appetizer, but for us it was a fun meal.

Home-made Fajita Seasoning

Last week when I made my Simple Steak Tacos, I mentioned I used Fajita seasoning to spice things up a bit. Actually I said I used my Home-made Fajita Seasoning. It’s super simple to make and you’ve probably got just about everything on hand to toss it together.
