My family loves fish tacos. This time we decided to make them a little differently, battering and baking the cod pieces à la Baked Chicken Nuggets with Creamy Bacon Dip. Preparing the fish this way makes the tacos more kid-friendly and they appeal to people who typically aren't seafood lovers, too!
My family has come to the conclusion that the best nachos we've ever had are from...home. In our opinion, these nachos are better than restaurant quality because each chip is loaded with toppings so that nobody complains about the pile of plain chips underneath the top layer of nachos. The key is to use homemade guacamole and salsa, and to marinate the chicken. But even if you're short on time and choose to use store-bought versions of the ingredients, serving "sliders" is a great way to present your nachos.
Itsy Bitsy Foodies partnered with Kid Time Discovery Experience in Medford, Oregon to host a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta & Cooking Class this past Saturday. Over twenty chefs and their parents attended the party. We made homemade guacamole and corn and flour tortillas for our Cinco de Mayo fajita feast. The guest chefs then enjoyed a piñata stuffed with candy and decorated Mexican flag sugar cookies.
Make an assortment of mini hamburgers for a party or a fun family meal. Lay out a smorgasbord of toppings and let everyone build their own slider. Serve the mini burgers with fruit salad, potato salad, french fries or sweet potato fries.
The following recipe is my family's take on loaded baked potato skins. The beauty of this appetizer is that you can load them up with whatever you would like: cheese, bacon, sour cream, salsa, chili, guacamole, you name it. It is also a meal where the whole family can get involved. Everyone can "load" their own potato skins.
This layered bean dip is always a crowd-pleaser at parties. At its most basic it is a 5-layer dip but it can easily become a 7-layer dip if you add multiple toppings with the cheese.
The following guacamole recipe is my family's favorite version but we change up the ingredients depending on what we have on hand. We really like the combination of the salsa verde with the chopped tomatoes but if we don't have salsa verde, we use any other salsa.
True to its name, this Fiesta dish is like a party in your mouth! It's a great way to transform leftovers into an exciting and colorful meal.
