"Here's another fun contribution from my Grandparentsdoccom Newsletter - Per their intro: "Whether it's for a party or dinner, this festive dish is a fun twist on both nachos & baked potatoes. These nachos are not only loaded w/delicious toppings, they’re loaded w/nutrition too! Russet potatoes provide potassium & B6 while beans & tomatoes pack in a healthy dose of fiber." ... The Kids Cook Monday is a campaign that encourages grandparents, parents & kids to start their wk off right by making Monday a family night. I love recipes like this, esp because my 9 yr-old grandson loves to cook & even watches cooking shows on TV :-) Enjoy!"

Daily Inspiration

Made these potato nachos for today's football game. The concept was great for these nachos, but we felt there wasn't enough flavor on the potatoes. Overall, with the added ingredients these nachos were a nice addition to our lunch today.

Anything with the words nachos and potatoes in it is sure to please at our house. We ended up using the whole can of black beans and more tomatoes, all the optional toppings, plus lime wedges to squeeze over, and it was all really super together.
