Chicken Fajita Nachos

Chicken Fajita Nachos

There I was: Beer in hand, nachos in the oven, and ready to watch some Monday Night Football.

I flipped on the TV to find The Voice and a few other reality TV shows on every channel!  I was expecting Broncos vs. Chargers! I was expecting Peyton in primetime!

Then I remembered that Monday Night Football is on ESPN which we don’t have. Totally lame.

But hey… the chicken fajita nachos were good!
