As we get ready for game day, the food is the key, well I suppose the football is, but the food is certainly up there too.  We always have plenty of choices for guests to enjoy, but I also like to have a few staples too like these Sweet Pepper Nachos.  I decided to add several delicious ingredients to these such as black beans, grilled chicken, and a bit of brown rice with quinoa too.  The Ricos Cheese though was obviously the biggest amount of flavor and it melted wonderfully in the oven.

Rico’s Cheese comes in a wide variety and you can easily find them at Walmart.  They are Trans Fat Free and made with no hydrogenated oils.  It’s simple to serve, just heat it and eat it!  It’s perfect to just have on the table as a side item to wings, pretzels, or chips too.

Now, it’s time to get back to these Sweet Pepper Nachos.  I like to make these in a cast iron skillet.  I can build them right in the skillet, and then place the whole thing in the oven.  I let them warm up for about 10 minutes, then carefully remove them and take a brush or spoon and spread the cheese around.  Next, put them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes so the peppers get a nice little warm crunch to them.  Once they are done, I add the rice, green onions, cilantro, and top them with salsa and sour cream.

    I love the idea of swapping out the chips for peppers. Looks good!
