Italian Nachos #PepItUp #ad

I told you we had snow last week AND the week before.  Now, I’m ready for spring!  You know, temps in the 70’s, warm breeze blowing, and the Blue Bonnets blooming.  

I’ve enjoyed the “soup and chili” weather but now I’m ready to move on.  So, meet my new friend….  

Italian Nachos

When we first had Italian Nachos at a restaurant I’d never heard of them and wondered if they were just trying to have a little Tex-appeal for their patrons?  We do love all things Tex-Mex.  After all, Texas is the only place I know of where you can get enchiladas on the Chinese buffet.  I’m not even kidding!  

So, I wondered if “Italian Nachos” were a real thing, but when we tried them we knew they were!  My husband and I loved them.  

Like many things we’ve enjoyed at restaurants, we wanted more.  So, I decided to try making them at home.  I did a little research online to figure out what they used for “chips” and found it was fried won ton wraps.  This gives the nachos a lighter more “springtime” feel.  Adding a family favorite, Original Hormel Pepperoni Minis, also gave it a personal touch.

When I was putting away the groceries I did have to make sure everyone knew the Hormel Pepperoni Minis were for a recipe.  I may or may not have hidden them in the back of the refrigerator, just in case.  Some people around here like to snack on them right out of the bag.  Really, I can hardly blame them….they are good and the perfect snacking size, not to mention…just sooo cute!

    What a fun dish! I agree. Texans always put their own spin on dishes. I can’t wait to try these. #client
