Bacon & Cheese Bread

If you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting as much lately, it’s because I’ve moved to a new apartment - an apartment with a gorgeous kitchen that has the world’s smallest oven. Sigh. You win some, you lose some.

It’s no surprise that whenever I visit my parents’ house, I head straight for the kitchen and our double convection ovens. I’ve had this recipe in mind for awhile and am so glad to have finally tested it out. The smell of bacon, cheese, and freshly baked bread is just ridiculous!

Can you imagine making a breakfast sandwich out of this? That’s next on my list…

(Note: I might have gone a little overboard with the bacon. Will definitely be trying this again with a little less filling…)

Drunk Nachos
Diced cooked chicken
1 can of pinto beans, drained
1 can of refried beans
1 small can of green chile peppers
shredded cheese (I used a 4-cheese Mexican blend)
tortilla chips
toppings: jalapenos, guacamole, Tapatio, etc.
Spread a layer of chips across the bottom of a baking pan, layer with half of the ingredients (except for the chicken and the toppings), add another layer of chips, and top with the remaining ingredients and the chicken. Bake at 375F for about 15 minutes. Add the toppings. Devour with lots of beer.
