{chip-less chili cheese nachos}

Say that 5 times fast! Actually, I just said it out loud 5 times and it really wasn’t that hard.

Okay, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today. Cause mama’s got shit to do.

Every. Single. Time I’m trying to watch what I’m eating. Bay comes up with something she’s dying to try. The latest:

Wienerschnitzel chili cheese fries. Yes…like the worst thing on the planet. Ha. But kinda the best thing too.

Fun fact: I got kicked out of Faith Formation (aka CCD) for ditching to go to Wienerschnitzel. And I 100% got chili cheese fires. I mean, what else do you even order from there? Anyway, we thought we were being really sly. To make a long story short, we got caught. I think I was about the same age as Bay is now. I’ve already threatened her she’d loose Snap Chat if she ever tried to ditch CCD…lol. Trust me, she won’t even chance it. She lives for snap!

Anyway, we were driving home the other night and Bay mentioned that she saw a commercial for chili cheese fries and NEVER KNEW THEY HAD THEM AT WIENERSCHNITZEL.

All caps because I almost fell outta my seat. Say what? I kinda feel like a failed her. Everyone should experience chili cheese fries.

So, I took her to Wienerschnitzel and got her an order. Did you know you can now order them like 10 different ways? Shit has changed since 25 years ago when I was frequenting the establishment. Bay got her chili cheese fries fix.

I tucked my tail and went home. Raided the fridge and came up with my own damn chili cheese chip-less nachos. And let me tell you….

They did the trick.

Weight Watchers friendly AF too!

I made a the whole package of mini peppers and took them for lunch the next day.

You could totally add taco meat and all the regular nacho toppings. I’ve done it, and it’s BOMB too!

You could make them buffalo chicken chip-less nachos. Done that too. Equally BOMB!

Really you can slap anything on these peppers. Toss them in the oven covered in cheese and the results will always be BOMB!
