So today was fun.  You know that kind of day when you show up for a birthday party that is actually tomorrow?
At least it wasn't yesterday, I suppose.
Still.  I am a grown up who might be taking this whole summer vibes deal too seriously, and might lack a little bit in the whole details on the calendar thing.
Remember last year when I was all cute and organized?
So, ya.  That was last year.
This summer has been pretty much not that.

Summer vibes forever.  Responsibility never.

So tonight I am going to make pulled pork nachos for dinner.  Because it is America and I can do what I want.

I could post a recipe, but I made a totally unrelated printable for you instead.

(Link to the free 8x10 download here.
Fake brick wall and masking tape not included.)

Glitter and nachos can make any catastrophe of a day awesome.

Well, maybe a sort of recipe would be awesome.  It's not really a recipe.
I am not taking pictures of the process.
Because I don't want to clean the kitchen.
Plus, it is just throwing some ingredients on chips and then sticking them in the oven.

If you need a step by step of that, I think there are some bigger issues at play.  Namely your deprived childhood where clearly you were raised by nacho hating wolves.

In case you are curious here is what you need:

Two of my ingredients are from Trader Joe's.  If you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby I have the number of a great real estate agent.
Chips (hello)
Cheese (duh)
Pulled pork
Plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
Chipotle salsa
Whatever your family likes on their nachos

My family is drama and only likes cheese.  They don't even like the sauce.  So I make them a lame plain pan and I make myself a loaded, spicy, saucy, one.  Jalapenos are my love language.  So is not sharing my nachos.

Prepare pork according to package
Cover a cookie sheet with foil (no scrubbing is awesome)
Throw chips on cookie sheet
Throw pork on top of chips
Add any other awesome ingredients
Top with gobs of cheese

Bake at 400º until cheese is melty

While baking make the chipotle sauce.
Highly complicated recipe:
Stir one part greek yogurt with one part salsa

Take nachos out of oven and drizzle with sauce.
Eat them right off the pan.  Remember.  America.  You can do what you want.  You are a grown up.  Even if you forget birthday parties.

So there you go.
A weird day, a printable, and totally unpinnable recipe all in one.
How awesome did today just get?

  2. Oh, the realtor comment is priceless. I really don't know how to shop without TJ's anymore. I've tried most of their salsas but never the chipotle one. Must do!
