Do you have themed days of the week where dinner is concerned? I used to think that we didn’t, but when I go back and look over my menus each week, I see that Mexican occupies a night, Italian, something American and leftover night. Can we really be these intense creatures of habit? Yes, we can, and I am quite ok with that!
Even though we like our comfort and our routines it’s good to change it up a little bit. So when Taco Tuesday rolls around I don’t always serve tacos. I will sometimes make an inspired casserole, sometimes it is tacos but sometime you just get the craving for nachos.
Nachos, like the building of your taco, is an incredibly personal thing. I like different items on my taco and my daughter builds hers completely different. Tonight though I decided that we were going to make 4 Cheese Nachos.
I was out of some of our items needed so I headed to Walmart to get what I needed and for some inspiration. I like to switch out ingredients that we normally have, and replace them with something new and exciting. Now, I can be met with groans and silent protests but almost always I come out on top with the new item and it ends up becoming the new norm and a family favorite.
Today as I hunted through the aisles of Walmart picking up the items I needed, ground beef, tomatoes, cheeses, lettuce, I came across a new and exciting item that just might take these 4 Cheese Nachos to the next level. I found Buck Wild Tortilla Chips. These tortilla chips come in 4 distinct flavors. Normally when you buy tortilla chips the only flavor they come in is salt and corn. While this is traditional for nachos, Buck Wild has created chips that explode with flavor and change our nacho landscape.
The flavors are Garlic Sea Salt, Cheddar Chipotle, Jalapeño Jack and Roasted Tomato and Herb. All of these chips are Gluten Free, contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, whole grains, and no high fructose corn syrup. They are made with real spices, and real cheese that you can taste and see. Any one of these would go beautifully with our nachos but, ultimately, I chose the Cheddar Chipotle. Now, of course, I brought the other flavors home as well. The Garlic Sea Salt, has a slightly salty taste with a big garlic punch. I love the crunch factor on all of these. Jalapeño Jack is spicy! You can really see the pieces of jalapeño and they are deliciously cheesy and spicy. The Roasted Tomato herb, was probably one of my favs. It has a lingering herb flavor that just envelopes your whole mouth. The Cheddar Chipotle is wonderfully cheesy with a hint of spice, perfect for my nachos! To learn more about Buck Wild Tortilla Chips head over to their website.
I also like when a brand I buy gives back to the community. Mission Buck Wild initiative supports FareStart Youth Programs. This is a program that helps the next generation youth find and secure meaningful employment opportunities. For more information visit: www.snackbuckwild.com/tasty-stuff/mission-buck-wild
Buck Wild Tortilla Chips really transformed our nacho night into something special. These are exceptional tortilla chips and they stand alone if you want to Snack the Path Less Ordinary ™ and just eat them on their own. No matter what flavor you choose there will be an explosion of bold flavor with every chip and every bite. These chips maintained their crunch even with the toppings on them and being put in the oven. These were some of the best nachos I have ever had.
