Cornell Reunion Nachos

There’s a diploma from Cornell University hanging up in Nachojawn HQ, and Mr. and Mrs. Nachojawn headed up the other weekend for Cornell Reunion. We had booked a place describing itself as a “Rustic Bohemian Treehouse” located on Lake Cayuga for us and two other couples.


And after a leisurely afternoon on the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, we fired up the toaster oven to make some nachos from Wegman’s purchased ingredients. Here’s the result:


Blue corn chips, Tostitos salsa, colby jack cheese, sour cream, black beans and fresh avocado on top. I kept my nose out of the ingredient purchasing, but it is a decent lineup, save for the salsa. If you’re foregoing the meat, you gotta get a little more interesting with your flavor profile.

The toaster oven did a good job heating up the nachos, the avocado was perfectly ripe, and I don’t think there was a leftover chip on the two trays.

Chicken Tostadas – my house

The Nachojawn family cooks Plated 2-3 times per week. If you’re not familiar, you order meals online, the ingredients are sent to you, and you do the cooking.

Cinco de Mayo week offered some good Mexican options. Tonight we made these.

it’s 85 degrees here, so I  whipped up some blackberry margaritas too

The tostadas had a roasted tomato onion salsa, ground chicken, refried beans, vocado lime crema, cabbage, queso fresco and jalapeños. And yeah, I fried my own tortillas.

No official rating on these, but they were dope.
