Easy & Very Cheesy Fajita Nachos

This adopted recipe comes from when I was single. I wanted something quick and easy for dinner. Something hardy! Less than 10 simple ingredients and I had very cheesy fajita nachos on the table. I dislike soggy chips so this recipe eliminates that issue.

Farm Bread Salad In A Skillet

JD makes his own farm bread, a mild sourdough, with a hard crust and a chewy texture inside. I always imagine sitting around a French farmhouse table waiting for dinner when the aroma of his bread fills the house. Save yourself time and purchase a loaf at your local bakery and enjoy this great skillet dish!

Inspired with a classic bread salad from www.healthyseasonalrecipes.com that uses a skillet, sliced garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes and a splash of aged balsamic with fresh oregano, JD creates an exquisitely simple dinner entrée. This is a perfect way to showcase tomatoes and let your creativity sore. For extra texture and substance, JD often changes it up with the addition of pine nuts, olives, fresh mini-mozzarella balls, or crispy bacon!
