I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.
When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.
*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Skillet Nachos (sisterscafe.blogspot)
photo courtesy of sisterscafe.blogspot.com
½ lb ground beef
Salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
2 small zucchinis, chopped (2 cup)
1 c chili beans in chili sauce (15-oz can)
½ c thick-and-chunky salsa
1½ c shredded Monterrey Jack cheese (12 oz)
Ripe olives, sliced
Fresh tomatoes, diced
Brown ground beef. Drain and remove ground beef to a plate; set aside. Using the same pan, stir-fry bell pepper and zucchini for 2 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Stir in chili beans and ¼ cup of the salsa; cook until hot. Stir in ground beef.
*Line tortilla chips on a broiler safe 9x13” pan. Spoon dollops of the mixture atop the chips. Sprinkle with olives and tomatoes (or you can add these after the nachos come out of the broiler). Sprinkle with cheese, to your liking. Put under broiler (not super close) until cheese is melted, only a couple of minutes. Serve with remaining salsa.
*We prefer to keep the chips out so they don’t get soggy.
