Wednesday: Cowboy Nachoes

I am in love with the Pioneer Woman website and originally received my idea for these nachos from her.
Jason and I have been going to a BBQ place here in town and enjoying these nachos. I ran across them on her website and learned how to make them for myself.

We create a meal plan like this weeks, with pinto beans and brisket as two other meals thus this is the third meal and leftovers from both previous meals are used.

Here is what you need:
The leftover pinto beans from your beans and cornbread meal.
The leftover Brisket.
Home made Pico de Gallo (Tomato, Onion, Lime juice, Cilantro, Onion)
Shredded Cheese
Wheat Tortilla Chips

Pioneer Woman soaks the meat in enchillada sauce for extra flavor. We do not. It is up to you!

Here is how you do it:

Step 1: Start thinking layers. Add a layer of chips to a dish, pile on beans, brisket, cheese, and pico de gallo. Repeat several times over until you have a large pile of layered yumminess!
Step 2: Put in oven long enough for cheese to melt and then top with one more helping of Pico de gallo.


Once we ran out of brisket and so I used hamburger meat. It was still delicious. Make sure to pile on the pico de gallo. It is the heart of this dish!
