With football season we usually spend mornings at my son’s games then the afternoons back at home watching the big games.  Now I don’t watch but I do get my ‘Game On’ making food that I know my boys will love to snack on while they watch. They love the classics: burgers, wings and tacos.  This week I’m making walking chili cheese tacos.

The great thing about these walking chili cheese tacos is that you can hit the store and grab a variety of chips for the base.  While I went for the traditional nacho chip for most of them I did pick up few surprise bags special for my 11-year-old, spicy fries.

Walking Chili Cheese Tacos loaded with toppings ready to eat.

When we lived in town I knew he was getting older when a bunch of boys set off on their own to go to the convenience store up the road and pick out their own snack and pay with their own money.  Inevitably they would come back with one kind or another of these fries and with fingers as orange as the sun. Since moving to the new house he doesn’t get to walk to the store anymore so I figured I would pick them up and make his walking chili cheese tacos with them.

How to make Walking Chili Cheese Tacos:

Start with browning the beef.  To the meat add cumin, chili powder and garlic power.  Cook until completely browned then drain the excess fat from the pan.

Add to a bowl and then you are ready for the chili cheese sauce.  In a bowl add the one can of chili with beans and 1/2 cup Colby Jack cheese. Place a paper towel or two over the top of the bowl then microwave for 3 minutes.  Stir to combine and that is it for the chili cheese.

Ingredients and steps to make Walking Chili Cheese Tacos.

For the bags, I cut a vertical slit down the middle then a slit horizontally to the top and bottom then opened it up.

Right on the top add the chili cheese then the meat.  Chop up some lettuce, tomatoes, onions into small pieces.

Tips for serving Walking Chili Cheese Tacos:

  • Set out some sour cream or guacamole and some more cheese of course. 
  • Go ahead and set this up bar style so that everyone can make their own and add what they like. 

And here you are….

Let’s start off  Mitten Movie Night with a meal combo that hits the spot no matter the weather, soup & grilled cheese.

What TV show pairs well with soup & sandwiches?

Mitten Movie Night was moved this week from Friday when it usually is to tonight.  We saved it because it’s a big TV night at our house.  It’s The Walking Dead season finale.  Are you a fan?  I found last season kind of bland but this season has certainly made up for it minus the first episode.

What beer pairs well with Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Pimento Grilled Cheese?

The beer: Guinness Golden Ale.

Now enough about zombies and on to the food!

This soup is so easy!  The thing that I love most about vegetable soups is that you can mix them up and then make them creamy with a little thing called an ‘immersion blender’.  I recently used it to make an amazing Asparagus Soup for another Sunday Supper.  I was trying to recreate a favorite of mine and it turned out perfect!

How to make Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup:

This soup is just a 4 step process: 1) Chop up the vegetables.

2) Mix these together in 2 Tbs oil.

3) Place on a baking sheet then roast them in a 350-degree oven for 40 minutes.

4) Once they are roasted add to a large stockpot with minced garlic, puree, chicken/vegetable stock, and sugar.

Set to low/medium heat while you make up the grilled cheese.

For the grilled cheese you could use any kind of bread.  This sandwich is made with English Muffin Bread that Little A and I made.  He loves to help me in the kitchen so I am always looking for things to bake because it’s something that I would like to get better at as well.

How to make Pimento Grilled Cheese:

Mix the mayo, cheese, and pimento in a bowl.

Slice and spread butter on the bread.

Add the pimento mixture in between bread then cook as with any good grilled cheese-3 minutes, flip, then 3 more minutes until the middle is completely melted.

This sandwich is perfect for dipping.

After your grilled cheese is nice and toasty and the soup is nice and roasty your ready.
