Irish Pub Nachos

Ok, so they’re not Irish and they’re not really Nachos. But what Irish Pub Nachos 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. I apologize…

Pineapple Mango Salsa

This is a lovely little fresh salsa for a dip or a side, mild if you’d like or fiery if you wish. The fruity pineapple & mango are set off beautifully by the lime/vinegar combo and the result is a bright, sweet/tart flavor explosion.

Mango or Papaya Salsa

There is something about a Mango or Papaya Salsa with spicy foods, like my Jerk Chicken – it lends just the right cooling effect. Add a little spice or hot pepper and it turns fiery, itself. Either way:  delicious, easy and cost-effective.

“Aji” Salsa, about $2.14

I’m no world traveler, but if I were, I’d have tried one of the many versions of this salsa served all over South America. Truly wonderful with a bit of a sweet/sour undertone, I literally crave it at times. I’ve served it to others, too, who can’t get enough of it. Make it as fiery hot or…
