Margaritas and Nachos

Lori and Mat stopped by last night and we had Nachos for dinner. Not just any nachos but these:

Nachos in our largest platter, about 18 inch
So with these grilled steak and flour tortilla Nachos we had to have the perfect Margarita.

I found this online after an exhaustive search for the ultimate recipe. It turns out its pretty darn simple

2/3 c fresh lime juice
2t sugar
1/3 c Cointreau
1 c good Tequila

Mix and chill. I actually had the booze in the freezer and then poured everything over ice in salt rimmed highballs. Mmm..tasty. Serves 4 generously.

The Nachos were typical but turned up a notch. I marinated a flat iron in Mexican spices like cumin and chipotle with lime juice and olive oil. Grilled it and sliced it very thin.

I purchased a large bag of flour chips from a local restaurant because they are the best.

I layered cheese, meats and baked at 250 for a few minutes. Topped with fresh guacamole, sour cream, and an assortment of fresh and pickled veggies. Made four decent servings.
