Pork Nachos

I came home from work today to find these ready for me :) My hubby dreamed up these beauties after hearing his co-workers rave about a local restaurant's pork nachos. He took tortilla chips and layered them with warmed refried beans, warmed Kirkland Smoked Pulled Pork from Costco (amazingly good), and shredded colby jack. He put it in the oven at 350 degrees until the cheese melted, then topped them with guacamole. They were so good I didn't need to add anything, although my hubby added Cholula, of course!

Chicken Milenesa

This is a simple one. I love Milenesa made with thin steak, so we tried the same theory with chicken, which we always have on hand (thank you Costco!).
Pound boneless skinless chicken breasts to 1/4 inch, or butterfly cut the chicken breast
Dredge in lightly beated egg mixture, then seasoned bread crumbs.
Fry in 1/2 inch of hot vegetable oil in nonstick skillet, flipping half way through until brown on all sides and cooked through.
Drain on paper towels or cookie rack.
Serve with broccoli and seasoned red potatoes.
