Easy Chicken Nachos

In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanianā€¦ At least when it comes to food. Otherwise, she loves Panama as if she was born and had lived there. I guess it’s just that magical of a place – yes, I’m totally trying to persuade you to plan a trip there and then come back to tell me all about it. šŸ˜‰

Back to food. She loves tacos and every Tuesday says, “Mami, it’s Taco Tuesday!” I love tacos too but I don’t want to eat them on a weekly basisā€¦ Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around hereā€¦ But sometimes she wins, especially when I don’t have dinner pre-planned.

I came up with some delicious and super easy chicken nachos, using ingredients that I mostly had. On the Border Monterey Jack Queso, Tostitos hint of lime chips, Two chicken breasts, adobo, corn, and jalapeƱos.

Using Goya’s discos para empanadas, allowed me to make something tasty while savoring flavors that took me all the way back home to Panama.

Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

I cook at home for my family almost everyday but when we go out to eat there’s a handful of restaurant that always make the list.

Churrascos among my top choices and yes it is family friendly. We have been on several occasion, mostly for lunch. I recommend this place because although of its upscale atmosphere, the prices are affordable. The food is delicious and the drinks are cheap. Speaking of drinks, they have happy hour everyday, from 4PM to 7PM. There are several locations in Houston but the closest to all the Super Bowl activities is Churrascos River Oaks; Churrascos Memorial and Churrascos Westheimer are not too far.
