Nachodillas with Jalapeno Bean Dip

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

We’re a week away from the start of the 2016 NFL season, and being Green Bay Packer fans, we are quite excited. It promises to be a very good year for the Packer-Backers, with Aaron Rodgers starting the season in top form, the return of Jordy Nelson, a reinspired Eddie Lacy and new draft  picks added to the team, have all the fans at the edge of their seats in anticipation. Even the preseason has been  an auspicious start, with the Pack going 3-1.

Fans are already chomping at the bit to celebrate, and what better way than with an array of delicious game time snacks? One of the favorites in our home is anything Tex-Mex. And we do love nachos! But rather than plates full of fried chips, I have tried to be a little devious and make them instead as a pseudo-nacho, all with a lightly griddled tortilla, and a very high-protein bean dip.

Now normally, a quesadilla is made on a flour tortilla, and though some references say it can be on either flour or corn, I have not seen them done on corn. But nachos are always done on corn tortillas, and making them this way and cutting them into wedges is a perfect way to put the cheese inside, making them easy to eat as well. You can do these on either flour tortillas or corn, as you prefer. Or if you just want to buy a bag of chips and  make up the bean dip, you will find the flavor to be like the retro bean dips of the 1960’s which I grew up with. That kind of bean dip was one of my Dad’s favorites and I have fond memories of enjoying it with him.

I hope this is a snack you can enjoy with your family, or perhaps also with friends stopping by to watch  the game and cheer on your favorite team, if by some unfortunate turn of events, that team doesn’t happen to be  the Packers. But in any case, I do offer your team, my deepest sympathies, when they arrive in Mr. Rodger’s neighborhood. And without  further adieu,
