Chili Nachos....and etc.

Was asked if I'd share the recipe for the chili is really, really very easy.

Chili Nachos


1 can chili starter beans

1 large can baked beans in flavor of choice

1 can chopped tomatoes(mexican style with chiles)

Salsa of choice

Sour cream

Tortilla chips of choice

Shredded cheddar cheese


Prepare chili starter mix, add the tomatoes and baked beans, heat through.

Layer a portion of chips onto plate. Spoon the chili over the top.

Layer with cheese.Top with salsa then a dollop of sour cream.

For an even heartier meal, you can add browned ground beef to your chili. Then when layering your nachos, add shredded lettuce and bean sprouts to the mix.

We have served it both the vegetarian way, and with the added meat and bean sprouts as well. Both versions are yummy.


Have fun with the recipe to adapt it to fit your tastes. You can even add guacamole if you wish.

It's very easy, very fast and not a whole lot of sweating over the stove.

Will be doing the drawing real soon for the little handbag and some other surprise tuck ins. If you haven't signed up for the drawing..there are still a few days left. Drawing on Monday night. Winner to be announced Tuesday morning.
So sign up under the post with the handbag image if you want to join in on the fun.
Went to Joanne's Fabrics yesterday with my daughter..and found some nice fabrics (half off the clearance fabrics/then a $5 off coupon for purchases over $35) So I found some nice fabrics to make skirts out of, and found a nice Butterick pattern for 99 cents. (thanks Jewels for reminding us about the sale.)
So, I now have enough fabric to make about 4 skirts.
I usually wear denim skirts everywhere, the kind with the cargo pocket on the sides..but have wanted to have a few that were just light and airy too for a change, a bit more feminine printed. So I found some nice floral prints...that will look good with solid color tops.
I did see a darling embroidered linen in a bright lime green color(sort of a cottage chic style look) with delicate pink flowers embroidered all over it and a matching pink fabric with flowers embroidered on it that would make the most beautiful two tiered skirt if done properly. ..but..I passed it up. Maybe next time they have a sale..I'll snag it and try to figure out how to create the skirt I can picture in my mind. (of course now that my daughter is a better seamstress than I am..she will be helping mom out with the skirts and so forth....(thanks Naomi :0)...I guess we'll have to bargain for more trips to Joanne's huh? ..she's a fabric junkie and is addicted to Joanne's so I'm sure we'll work out some negotiations for her helping me with my skirt projects..ha)
Here's wishing you all a very lovely day.
May you enjoy spending time with your families on this lovely Sunday afternoon.
Thanks for visiting with me in "blog land"

Glad to hear you all had a good outing. And got some great bargins too. I didn't do anything this weekend. I was lazy. I think the heat made me that
Have a good one.

oh the heat was terrible. when we got into the van the thrmometer registred at 101 degrees at first but then cooled down to about 92 but that was still hot! luckily we weren't out in the heat too much because it certainly does take it out of ya. We've been soaking up the a/c every chance we can here.
