Meatless....Superbowl Sunday!

I apologize for taking so long to post. I started this blog right before the spring semester started and sort of had to hit the ground running with my classes....especially General Chemistry II (blech!). We have had a crazy week with ice storms, snow storms, and Superbowl weekend in Dallas. It was so nice to finally get out of the house and head up to the big D to hang out with the football crowd... Congrats to the Packers! We live only 30 minutes from Arlington - that would have been a great game to see at Cowboys Stadium if we had 4 grand + to spend on tickets :)

Every year Gerry makes his "famous" Superbowl Nachos and we sit and home and stuff our faces while we  watch the game. This year we continued the tradition with a little "twist." We left out the ground beef, made a couple additions, and they were (surprise, surprise ;) still really good!

Gerry's Meatless Superbowl Nachos

1 bag extra thin tortilla chips
1 can corn
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1-2 shallots, finely chopped
6 green onions, thinly chopped
shredded mexican style cheese
Juice of 1 lime
chili powder

Place oven rack on lowest level and set temp. to broil.
Drain beans and corn, then mix in bowl with lime juice cumin, chili powder, paprika, and salt.
Spread chips in 9x13 baking dish or cookie sheet.
Layer shallots and beans/corn mixture on chips.
Top with cheese.
Bake until cheese is melted.
Remove from oven and top tomatoes and green onions.

....and if you're crazy like Gerry dump a whole bunch of cayenne pepper on top!
