Beer Bacon Cheese Nachos Recipe


 So this picture is worth a thousand words... it basically describes itself.  These mouthgasmic nachos are simple, delicious, and hubby-approved (then again, what wouldn't he approve?!).  These were a perfect snack for this past weekend when all we did was drink... drank... drunk...

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 lb. bacon
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup beer (I used Corona)
1 tbsp. honey dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Tortilla chips

DIRECTIONS:

-Preheat oven to 400.  While preparing the cheese sauce, spread one large cookie sheet with tortillas chips and heat in the oven for about 5 minutes.
-Chop the bacon slices into small pieces.  Cook the bacon in a skillet until crispy, then remove and set aside on a paper towel.  Leave grease in the pan.
-Melt butter in the skillet with the bacon grease in it.  Add the flour and cook, stirring for about 2 minutes.  Add the cream, beer, mustard, and seasonings.  Mix well; simmer for about 5 minutes.
-Stir in the cheddar cheese until melted.
-Spread the cheese sauce evenly over the tortilla chips.  Top with the cooked bacon and the chopped green onions. 

**This makes a good amount of cheese, it's also excellent for a dip, just top with bacon bits or more cooked bacon and serve with chips or pretzels!

ENJOY!!
XOXO
