For those looking for a snack while watching NFL Sundays, or those just looking for a snack, Kelly Clarkson shared a touchdown-recipe for loaded nachos.
The audience right now is people who are watching remotely online. Their faces are displayed on little screens throughout the audience as a precaution during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This episode’s guest was Danielle Kartes, food stylist and recipe developer. She shared recipes from her new cookbook, “Rustic Joyful Food: Meant to Share.”
The nachos have any kind of leftover meat, such as a pork roast. Then a gracious amount of whatever kind of cheese is available at home. Then a mixture of tomatoes, beans and olives go on before it goes into the oven. On top are toppings like sour cream, cilantro, green onions, jalapeños and guacamole. The great thing is the “choose your own” capacity for this recipe.
For those who make nachos at home or who have the urge to do so now, sheet pans are the ultimate tool to well-distributed nachos.
Clarkson and Kartes relate about the struggle of going to a restaurant and the bottom of the nachos is just plain, topping-less chips.
Kartes claims that it makes her “feel personally attacked,” while Clarkson agrees in saying “it’s rude.”
On the side is a spicy pineapple spear recipe. This leftover pineapple then is the star of a sweet and spicy margarita.
If hearing a widely successful Grammy-winning country artist talk about food seems interesting, there are several other artists who are also known for their behind-the-scenes cooking skills.
Trisha Yearwood hosts her own show on the Food Network “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen” and has released several cookbooks. The Zac Brown Band also has a cookbook with photos and stories all of which are on removable index cards.
Dolly Parton also uses her country roots and childhood, family recipes in her book “Dolly’s Dixie Fixin’s: Love, Laughter and Lots of Good Food.”
From nachos to farm fresh food, country artists are bringing a lot to the table.
