Welcome!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Pizza Nachos

We love pizza around here. The cheap kind or the “designer” kind. We are SO not picky. We also love anything pizza flavored so these pizza nachos were right on the money. The nice thing about this is that you can dress it how ever you like your pizza. IT Guy and I are pretty traditional so I went with sausage but almost anything will work. The key is to put the cheese on first so the chips don’t get too soggy too fast. But that’s what forks are for, right? Use a sturdy chip with this recipe...none of these lightweight chips will do. Enjoy this yummy treat next time it’s pizza night at your house!

Pizza Nachos
 
1 bag tortilla chips (use a sturdy chip. I used Santitas)
1 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 pound Italian sausage (or whatever meat you like)
1 4-ounce can sliced olives
1 small onion
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
 
Line a baking sheet with foil and spread chips in the bottom of the pan.
 
In a large skillet, saute the onion then add the sausage and cook until the meat is done.
 
Sprinkle half of the mozzarella and half of the cheddar cheese over the chips.
 
Scatter cooked sausage over the cheese then add the olives or whatever veggies you’re using.
 
Drizzle sauce over the top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
 
Bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and nachos are hot.
 
Serve immediately.
