I asked my daughter what she wanted for dinner and to my surprise she requested nachos. I went to the local Mexican market and grabbed some chicken steaks, which are marinated boneless chicken thighs that are butterflied. Also picked up a couple different types of chorizo, a typical Mexican chorizo and an El Salvadorean style.

Grilled chicken on the Weber, added some fresh lime juice and Don Sazon carne asada seasoning.

All diced up for the nachos with some of the El Salvadorean chorizo.

Nachos plated with some refried beans, crema and hot sauce.

Also made some queso fundido with chorizo. This pic does not do it justice but it was delicious. Oaxacan cheese topped with chorizo and baked.

And lastly, this is something we eat often, my kids love it and I grew up eating this. It is a simple ceviche but with imitation crab. We do make it with fish and shrimp but to keep cost down we use the fake stuff and make a big batch that we eat all week. Great on a tostada shell on a hot day. Thanks for looking!

Ceviche is really simple, like a fresh salsa with added seafood. Diced onion, tomato, cilantro. Chopped up the imitation crab, squeezed a few lemons and limes, added garlic salt and pepper. Let sit for a bit then it's ready to go with tostada shells or tortilla chips. Some tapatio or your favorite hot sauce to top it off.

Oh. Mah. Gawd.

Yes, please! You said all sorts of "magic words" around our house! Looks awesome!

I've never tried a chicharron associated with nachos before... but between you and Adams out in W TX, it looks like it's "a thing" that we should try... and soon!

Thanks! Yes I have tried them, pretty solid. I known you work out this way, there is a killer spot in Castaic. It is called Tio's market. Real authentic food, amazing menudo with homemade corn tortillas. I'm there every weekend for breakfast, amazing chillaquiles.

Oddly enough I haven't tried it but that'll change. I've tried the taco trucks across them and the saloon that some raved about and I wasn't impressed at all.

Thanks!!

Fine looking nachos, Danny! We love the Salvadoran chorizo, and use it frequently on tacos.

Did you check out the bash we are having in the fall?

We're about 30 minutes south of you, so not too far away at all.

The Country Girl Saloon!! Haha not the classiest establishment. The taco truck in that parking lot has some good al pastor, Tio's market is right across the street from there. It is actually just a small liquor store but they threw a few tables in it and started serving food. Hands down the best I have had in this area.

I would love to make it to the bash this year. It is on my wedding anniversary but I already ran it by the wife and it wasn't a no!! I will definitely be following the thread and look forward to making it out there!
