Planning a Race Day viewing party?
What to cook?
Bacon Barbacoa Nachos are the perfect appetizer to make for a Race Day party. Bacon makes everything better. Nachos are a must for any sports viewing party. My family loves bacon and spicy flavors so we’re always looking for ways to incorporate these flavors. Bacon pairs well with the smoky chipotle flavors making quite tasty nachos.
I LOVE nachos. Casual. Delicious. Easy to tweak the recipe to your liking – add beans, use a different kind of meat, use a spicier salsa. Don’t forget to add some fresh cilantro on top – just a little bit adds a punch of flavor (and makes your dish look good too)
This recipe works great for entertaining on Race Day. You can start the meat cooking ahead of time in a Slow Cooker and keep it warm until party time. Just shred the meat, add the bacon and put back in the Slow Cooker on Warm. When your guests arrive, layer the nachos and serve. Love simple stress-free entertaining.
The meat also freezes well. Cook the beef ahead of time and freeze. Remove from freezer and thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Heat and serve on Race Day. Love anything you make ahead when entertaining.
