Red Skin Potato Chili Nachos
Last month I collaborated with a handful (okay, a large handful) of bloggers to bring you 64 tailgating recipes for the football season! This month we’re back with our team specific recipes and I am so excited about this one.
I wanted to figure out a way to incorporate red skin potatoes for my team (I’ll leave it unnamed, but c’mon guys, this one should be easy to guess) and also something that is iconic to the area my team is from. After talking to Steven about it, he told me that every year Washington DC hosts a chili cook off that is pretty famous in the area.
At first, my mind was stuck on chili recipes incorporating red skin potatoes, which sounded awesome, don’t get me wrong. But I wanted something that was even more outside the box.
One day, inspiration struck. I’m pretty sure it was around 2 AM when I was nursing Greyson or something, but none-the-less, I came up with red skin potato chili nachos. To add in the local touch, I decided to add in a chili component to the recipe.
I truthfully had no idea how it would turn out. But I had my trusty cast iron skillet and went to town.
And boy, did they turn out just great. I love this play on foods combining “nachos” with comfort food like the red skin potatoes. These red skin potato nachos are seriously perfect for snacking on during a football game this fall!
