Chipotle Chicken Nachos ~The Kitchen Witch

I want to put it out there that I run in FABULOUS circles. I mean, how many other 48 year old ex police officers turned crisis workers who sideline as Kitchen Witches and have cried over green onions on a reality TV cooking show, can also say they're friends with a rapper?

I can.

I work with a well known local hiphop artist named SirReal who is part of the community ed team I manage. In that light, we're fortunate that he shares his music and inspiring message of hope in many of our workshops for youth. But what does that have to so with Chipotle Chicken Nachos?

Though I knew Sirreal was an amazing lyricist and musician, I didn't know he also used to be a chef. I found that out last spring when I had his family over to my house for dinner and he did all the cooking! One of the best things he made involved a simple chipotle sauce that I just HAD to have!

And so on the launch week of his AMAZING new single about the effects of bullying and how we can each stand up and make a difference, I came up with a dish to go with the song: Words Like Weapons. (click the link to listen, share, and download - the song is just great)





















This easy to make dish is perfect for Game Day and will revolutionize the way you think about nachos!

Enjoy the recipe, and check out Words Like Weapons

As always, join me in the Kitchen Witch cottage and cook along!
