Who’s ready for summer!? I sure am.
The sun is out, the weather is getting warmer and all I can think about is sitting by a lake. I want to look out at the water, relax, and maybe eat and drink a little.
One thing I don’t want to do is get stuck in the kitchen. It’s hard to “say yes to summer” if you’re cooped up in the house.
If you have any lakeside parties planned, I have the perfect easy recipe for you – Quick Summer Doritos Nachos.
First, you need a bag of your favorite Doritos. My favorite flavor is Nacho Cheese – all that cheesy, crunchy goodness in one bag!
Next, you need a little grill. This step can be skipped if you are going to be out on a boat; the grill is just used to heat up the shredded cheese and any meat you choose. I tried both ways and these nachos are delicious when the shredded cheese is or isn’t melted.
Then you need your toppings. The main toppings I used are Chihuahua cheese (the kind used in quesadillas) and some ground beef. If you are short on time, you could also pick up a rotisserie chicken and shred the pre-cooked meat on top of the Doritos.
I also stopped at my local grocery store and bought some pre-made guacamole and pico de gallo. Since my goal is to spend less time in the house and more time at the lake, pre-made dips are where it’s at.
I picked up a few fresh jalapeños, green onions, and sour cream and quickly diced them up while I was cooking the ground beef. Leave your pans at home and opt for a foil cooking pan that can be thrown away when you’re done eating. Less mess, more fun!
Pour the Doritos onto the pan and then sprinkle the shredded cheese and cooked meat on top of the chips. Put it on your grill for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Carefully take the pan off the grill – it’s going to be hot – and place it on a table.
Time to pile on the toppings! You can put everything on top at once or keep it on the side so you can pick and choose your toppings.
Then all you have to do is enjoy your Quick Summer Doritos Nachos and the sun. Spend more time with your family and friends and say yes to summer!
