Spicy black bean and jalapeños nachos
June 28, 2011 § 6 Comments
For the two (maybe three?) of you who read this blog when I first started it, think back to my nacho post. Yup, that one. Can you believe that was only five months ago? In just five months, The Starved Writer has grown so much. I may have just a handful of readers but I have watched my abilities in the kitchen, my photos and my writing grow. I have fallen in love with the world of food blogs!
In the past week or so, things have gotten busy around here – I had a photo accepted to TasteSpotting and I got involved with What I Ate Wednesday at Peas & Crayons. As a result, I have met lots of new people, learned lots of new things and found lots of new ways to do what I love. This blog has come a long way but there is so much yet to do! I can’t wait to see where The Starved Writer will take me.
If you have any advice on how I can improve The Starved Writer, let me know! I’d love to hear from you!
Today, to pay tribute to where this blog started, I bring you more nachos. They may not be much healthier than the first ones I posted (come on, who was I kidding?) but they do show my change in tastes – black beans, mozzarella, jalapeños, yellow peppers, onions and nachos with flax seeds. (They are a step up from the Heinz baked beans and marble.) The jalapeños are nice and spicy, the yellow bell peppers are refreshing and almost cool and the flax seed chips give the nachos the hearty, whole-grain taste that I love. If you like nachos with a bit of spice, you will love these.
What do you put on your nachos? Any unique ideas?
