It’s the second day of cookout week, plus, the ladies at Festive Foodies are gearing up for the 4th of July with red, white, & blue colored foods!
The two themes merge perfectly!
This recipe was actually Spud’s idea! He found the recipe in his High Five magazine and wanted to make it right away!
It’s a simple kid friendly recipe, but sometimes those are the best on crazy busy summer nights!
July 4th, 1776 is the date the Second Continental Congress adopted The United States Declaration of Independence effectively ending British rule. Now we celebrate our independence each year on July 4th with fireworks, picnics, parades and backyard barbecues across our nation. Join these 11 bloggers as we celebrate and share some patriotic themed recipes!

Red, White, & Blue Nachos
Inspired by High Five Magazine, July 2017 issue

1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano, optional
Taco meat (above)
Blue corn chips
White cheddar cheese, shredded
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
To make the taco meat, place the beef and onion in a skillet and cook until the onion is tender and beef is browned. Drain off any grease. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
Stir in the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
To make the nachos, arrange the chips on a baking sheet. Top with taco meat, pico de gallo, and the cheeses. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
