Holiday Leftovers Nacho Skillet

Dec 26, 2018 | Pork, Snacks, Turkey

A skillet full of Paleo Nachos is the best way to use holiday leftovers. Throw on some turkey, stuffing, and butternut squash and enjoy it with a bowl of guac!

Happy day after Christmas! Are you totally stuffed in a food coma? Are you just going to keep eating anyway because you don’t care? Right on. I felt pretty sick yesterday, and I don’t eat much on Christmas anyways since I’m not cooking, so I’m super excited to start to feel like eating again. It’s my first vacation this year, so I feel like a real “pig-out” is in order, ya know?  Gimme allll the nachos and guac.

I’m also ready for some good quality coffee. I got my dad a Chemex for Christmas (he’s been getting deep into the pour-over coffee thing) and the selfish child me got it so he would make me coffee without me having to go anywhere. It’s like living with a Barista. If Hudson wasn’t waiting for me in Arizona I would never leave this wonderland. Hopefully we’ll be able to move closer so Hudson can be with his grandparents and I can come over frequently for coffee. Isn’t that the life? I’m sure it’s the life.

Meanwhile, let’s all make nachos with our holiday leftovers, ok? I make these with some good ol Siete Nacho Chips and I swear it’s the secret weapon ingredient. You can’t go wrong with a skillet full of nachos, even if you’re already full or feeling crappy
