Ain’t nothin’ sad about our cheery night – just listening to “Christmas Blues” on Pandora and eating blue corn tostadas covered in red and green peppers!
To start, we primed the engines with pumpkin homebrew:
And then got to work layering the following:
- Whole Foods blue corn tortillas
- Harris Teeter Naturals black bean refried beans (ingredients: beans, salt, water) that were mixed with a can of Rotel
- Chopped red and green peppers
- Shredded sharp cheddar
- Pickled jalapenos
Each layer was baked for 3-5 minutes before adding the next.
Greek yogurt and cilantro to garnish –
I cut mine like a pizza for ease of eating.
They were DA-licious!!!!!!!!!!!! Like giant nachos. The blue corn tortillas, however, were still bad. Do not buy them. Blah.
We probably didn’t need them, but I bought a head of romaine to serve on top but since it was cold it just didn’t make sense. So we made side salads with more peppers, garlic gold oil, avocado, cilantro and nutritional yeast, which was a brilliant addition because it made the salad buttery (garlic gold) and cheesy!!
Why do I always end up with rotten avocados in my cart!?!? At least part of this was salvageable.
Somehow more of this appeared at my seat!
After dinner we got our wrap on.
I am the World’s Worst Present Wrapper. And I don’t care! I believe in recycling and wrapping things just enough so the gift doesn’t show through. All of my presents are wrapped in recycled containers – with recycled bows.
An O Magazine cover was perfect for mom!
I got a little crafty with the wines
