For Christmas I received a Blackstone Griddle. It is the most used gift that I have ever received. I cook everything on it, from Japanese steakhouse fried rice to smash burgers.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
In honor of Cinco de Mayo I decided to do a little list of my favorite south of the border recipes. Since this is Cocktail Wednesday the first has to be a refreshing beverage. Nothing starts off a good Cinco de Mayo like a Margarita!!
I love nachos!!! Yep, three exclamation points. Besides being delicious they are quick and easy to make. Take a few tortillas, cover with your favorite ingredients, and then coat with cheese. Melt and serve. Howe easy can that be. My favorite type of Nachos are Chicken Nachos.
Top with some sour cream and you have a great meal.
