Keema Nachos


Damn straight I just said Keema Nachos.

Keema Nachos are just about the best thing that could happen to a human being. They’re savory, meaty, cheesy, and then you layer on the chutneys and pico de gallo, and I swear it’s heaven. I always cook too much food. There’s all there is to that statement. So, inevitably, there are always leftovers. Half the fun of leftovers is figuring out what to do with them. And sure, the first 1-2 days is continuing to eat delicious keema with fresh roti, salad, and cucumber raita, but then comes the challenge of what’s next. Which in my house, means quesadillas, burritos, nachos, keema buns, and even keema kulchas. It’s only natural that if I’m going to spend hours making delicious keema, I’m going to make a boatload and reuse it, a lot! Ain’t no one got no 3 hours to make dinner for 2!

The real question here is, do you really need me to explain how to make nachos? Let’s be honest, you pile stuff onto a tray and you bake it. Now that we’re over the nonsense of how to make this recipe, lets move on to more interesting topics, such as why Sage has decided that she’s now a bedroom dog. And I don’t mean why is she sleeping in my bedroom. I mean why has she decided now that she prefers to lay up in the bedroom till at least 2 pm. She does me the courtesy of going out for her morning constitutional and then takes herself straight back to bed. Which, ok, I can’t blame her. Except that she has the same exact bed in the family room. So this is how it goes: she goes out, goes back to bed, I and the other dogs are in the family room, she stays in bed. Around 2-ish, I go up to say hi, she stretches and reluctantly follows me down. I dare say that if she could talk, she’d be asking me where her afternoon cup of tea was. It’s amazing how silly and adorable older dogs are. Like Apollo and his selective deafness.
