To make the nachos, arrange 2 bags tortilla chips on a platter. Combine 4 seeded and chopped tomatoes, 1 seeded and chopped jalapeno, 1 chopped onion, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil, and cook 2 cloves chopped garlic, 1 chopped onion and 1 seeded and chopped jalapeno. Add 1 pound ground sirloin, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons dark chili pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin and 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper sauce. Cook for five minutes, and add 1 15-ounce can black beans.
In a sauce pot, melt 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons flour. Cook, and whisk in 3/4 pound pepper jack cheese. Pour sauce over chips, and top with beef, beans and salsa.
To make the chicken tenders, season 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Place 1 cup flour in a dish, and beat 2 large eggs with 1/4 cup water in a second dish. In a third dish, combine 2 cups Italian-style bread crumbs, 1 cup Parmesan, 6 sprigs chopped thyme, 6 sprigs chopped rosemary, 2 handfuls chopped flat-leaf parsley, 4 cloves chopped garlic and 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.
Coat the chicken in flour, then egg, then bread. Cook the chicken in a skillet with 1/2-inch oil until golden. Move to a cookie sheet, and bake for five minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.Learn more about Cooking
