Apparently it’s How Sweet nacho week!
This would be a delightful thing, if I wasn’t the one constantly shoveling said nachos in my mouth. I think I’ve learned my nacho lesson.
But first, I must share these with you. We love crispy roasted potatoes. Like… love them. When I roast a panful, we eat them all. Not a crumb remains. Naturally, when I topped them with every ingredient in my fridge, they tasted even better. Especially since I can classify these as healthy because they have beans (fiber), avocado (healthy fat), salsa (vegetables) and Greek yogurt (protein). I easily bypassed the three cups of cheese.
Yep, I can justify just about anything. Except for the four cookie bars I ate while browsing Facebook and writing this post. Fail.
So here it is, the easiest recipe ever. It is quite versatile! You can make them for the big game, or for lunch… which is what I did in our case. Just take some beautiful big potatoes…
Slice them into wedges.
Toss them with olive oil and a touch of salt and pepper.
Bake them until they look like pretty, crispy, toasty wedges of deliciousness. Yes, that’s what they are called. Don’t forget any adjectives.
Cover them with toppings of you choice.
Eat. Moan. Groan. Devour. Make more. Eat more. Get a stomachache. Drink wine.
Well, at least that’s how it went for me.

Please tell me what you are making for the big game. Because even though I just shared 25 recipes, I have issues and feel the need to make something new and exciting. What can I say? I get bored easily.
