Hey, did you know that the Superbowl is this coming Sunday? If it weren’t for Deflategate would any of us know who’s playing in the Superbowl, other than the fans of those two particular teams? I doubt it. For me the only reason to watch to Superbowl is for the commercials. Oh, and the food. When else is it acceptable to watch a football game you care nothing about only for the commercials and the food? I’m gonna say never. I only pay attention to the football game when MY team, the New Orleans Saints are playing. Yes, so that means I’ve only paid attention to the football once. But I pay a lot of attention to the food spread, and this year that included Hector’s Superbowl Nachos.
Hector would be all over the Superbowl, but only if his team, the Denver Broncos, were playing. So many of you are now asking yourselves, “Who the heck is Hector?” Remember a few months ago when I posted the recipe for Stuffed Shells and I talked about my online book club and how were reading anything by Kristen Ashley, but especially her Rock Chick Series? If you don’t, go back and read the post about Ren’s Stuffed Shells (I just changed the name to Ren’s Stuffed Shells!). But anyway, I digress. Hector is the Hot Bunch rescuer of our heartbreakingly sweet damsel in distress, Sadie in Rock Chick Regret, the seventh book in the series. Hector is big and bad and a former DEA agent now working for a PI company full of HOT badasses. Sounds like a pretty good story to me. I’d read that. In fact I have, many times!
While this is probably something that Hector could make, he didn’t make these nachos. He’s more of a standing next to the grill drinking a beer kind of cooking guy. You see, in Rock Chick Regret, our girl Sadie is staying with her two best friends who happen to be a gay couple named Ralphie and Buddy. Buddy’s the cook. One night while Hector is at Buddy and Ralphie’s visiting Sadie, Buddy decides to make nachos for Hector because they’re “the food of his people” and Sadie is whisked away from Hector’s arms to “smush up avocados for guacamole” much to Hector’s chagrin. This is what I imagined Buddy’s nachos to be like and I’m sure they were delicious. Mine were, that’s for sure. And make sure you pair it with a Fat Tire beer. It’s what Hector would do (and so would I).
