Smokey Nachos

  1. I was going to save this for the get together, but I guess I'll go ahead and post it. I kind of have a craving for it, and since I can't make it, I'll consume it vicariously through this post.

    Nacho chips
    1 1/2 C cold water
    1 C all purpose flour
    1/2 C cornmeal
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 egg
    Oil

    Heat 8 inch non-stick skillet over medium-low heat just until hot. Use oil if you need it.

    Beat water, flour, cornmeal, salt and egg until smooth. Fill turkey baster with 1/4 C of the batter and squirt into skillet making a round, very thin tortilla. Cook until dry around edge, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook other side until golden brown, about 2 more minutes.
    When all batter is made into tortillas, stack and cut into wedge shaped chips.
    Deep fry chips in 375º peanut oil until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels and season immediately with your favorite seasoning.

    Now top with smoked diced chicken, pulled pork and pulled brisket, your favorite picante sauce, cheese, onions, and whatever else you like on your chips. We have also used our favorite BBQ sauce instead of picante sauce.

    Enjoy before they get soggy.

    Gunny, that sounds pretty darned tastey. I hope you've got more stuff in your bag of goodies for the get together.

    Tom -

    That's looks nice and easy!

    Thanks!
     
  4. It is very easy.
    BTW the turkey baster trick works great for a perfectly round crepe when you are using a griddle to do more than 1 at a time.

    works good for pancakes too
     
  6. Looks good. I've fried my own potato chips, but never thought I'd ever be able to make my own corn chips. Thanks for the recipe.
