it looks a little like this:
halloween

Our Halloween dinner tradition is......NACHOS!! 
And this is how we do them:

Spicy Homemade Chili
here is my "recipe"......you can decipher it however you like. 

happy, grass fed ground beef browned with lots of onion and garlic
kidney and pinto beans
tomato sauce
diced tomatoes
ground chipotle flakes
chili powder
cumin
a hefty dash of unsweetened baking cocoa
s&p
all simmered together on the stove for the afternoon

For the Nachos 
(we like them extra spicy):
tortilla chips
pepper jack cheese
homemade guacamole and salsa
sour cream
green onions
jalapenos
fresh tomatoes
Marie Sharp's  Habanero Sauce (the BEST!)

top, pile, and load them up!

Love your Halloween Nachos...they look fabulous and definitely would be something my family would enjoy!! I'll have to try those mixing up those ingredients and making some for a fun dinner.

You are skilled beyond measure with that camera of yours...your photos are always AMAZING!!

Just wanted to let you know that you inspired our Halloween costumes this year....dressed my boys up like "FrankieStein"! (here if you would like to see how they turned out http://pinkcookieswithsprinkles.blogspot.com/2011/11/oh-fun-we-had-on-halloween.html)

BTW...LOVE the pumpkin photos in your Pig and her pumpkins post....that is one giant jack-o-lantern face...it makes me want to try and carve that exact pumpkin and take photos of my kids like you did. My boys would think that is AWESOME!! WOW, what talent you and your family have.

Hope you are enjoying your day! Thanks for the smiles and inspiration!!
