Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potato Bites

Yesterday I posted my recipe for garlic redskin mashed potatoes, and I promised you another recipe today using the leftovers. Cooking for two people can sometimes be a challenge for me. I always seem to make way too much food. Because of this, I love coming up with creative ways to use leftovers.

I’ve made my mashed potato recipe about a gazillion times now, so I have the measurements figured out pretty well for just the two of us. But whenever we do end up with leftovers, I love turning them into these mashed potato bites. I discovered this awesome idea on The Kitchn. They’re super easy to throw together, and they make the perfect little finger food for snacking on. Sometimes I purposely make extra mashed potatoes just so we can enjoy these little bites later in the week. You could certainly use fresh mashed potatoes made just for this recipe if you want, but it’s a great way to use up leftovers if you do have some. Continue Reading

Barbecue Chicken Nachos

This weekend my husband Robby and I made one of our favorite meals of all time – barbecue chicken nachos. We started making these a couple of years ago, and we have been hooked ever since. We literally cannot get enough of them. This usually ends up being our Friday night cheat meal, and honestly I think we both love it even more than going out to eat.

I simply cannot express enough how much I love these nachos. If you’ve never made nachos this way before, you definitely need these in your life. And I am SO excited to introduce them to you!

You don’t need much to make these nachos. Just make sure you have some chicken and your favorite barbecue sauce as well as plenty of tortilla chips and cheese. The rest of the toppings can be adjusted to your preferences.

Making these couldn’t be easier. We always assemble them on a foil-lined cookie sheet and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Sometimes in the summer we will make them in little foil pouches and throw them on the grill. Doing it this way also makes for an AWESOME camping recipe! Nachos are perfect for almost any occasion – a party, the Super Bowl, camping, or just because you can. Continue Reading
