I don’t know about you guys but we had some leftovers from the Fourth of July hanging out in fridge.They were way to good to toss out, but they needed a new look. This is how Cowboy Nachos were born.
It is no secret that I like to concoct crazy things in the kitchen every now and then. You should just feel sorry for my poor husband. He just smiles and eats what ever put in front of him. I must say the first few years of marriage were probably pretty tough on the ol’ boy. Now with 20 years of cooking experience under my belt the culinary faux-pas have been kept to a minimum, with an occasional “Oh no I forgot the rolls…. oh, I charred the rolls” in occurrence. This was our menu from the Fourth of July, as seen in my tablescape post (link here). So my latest kitchen creation consist of some of our Fourth of July leftovers. I basically created nachos, by adding chips and cheese. I utilized the bourbon baked beans with bacon chunks, in place of the refried beans. This was done by mashed them up with a potato masher to create a bean paste like refined beans. Next I shredded the brisket up like fajita meat. Then I sliced the corn on the cob off to make a corn salsa mixed with lime juice and cilantro, if you have a tomato you could most certainly stir it in as well. I topped it with a little sour cream and BBQ sauce.
My husband loved this one so much I had to post it to share with everyone. The best past this is not limited to just 4th of July leftovers you can use this trick all summer long after any backyard BBQ. Whether it is chicken, pork or beef all of them would be great. Don’t forget to pin this one for later!
