Obviously Nachos

Obviously Nachos

As part of my Super Heroes menu this month, I decided on Obviously Nachos that were part of Disney’s California Adventure Summer of Heroes in 2017. The nachos are described as “Fried blue corn tortillas with red pepper cheese sauce, mojo-marinated chicken, chipotle crèma and green onions”.

This is an easy meal to pull together by using your slow cooker. The chicken is tasty and easy to prepare by placing all the ingredients in the slow cooker and shredding before serving. The two sauces are quick to prepare. Once the sauces and chicken are ready, just sprinkle the chicken and the sauces over the chips to serve. If desired, warm up the nachos a little, my family liked it best that way.

This dish was inspired by Marvel super heroes, I think Guardians of the Galaxy in this case. This would be a fantastic dish to eat while watching any of the super hero movies. Throw a party to watch movies again before going to see the latest new release in the theaters. See the end of this post for other Marvel inspired recipes to complete your feast.
