Sweet Potato Skillet Nachos with Avocado Crema

These nachos are made with sweet potato chips instead of tortilla chips because a) you can make your own and season them however you want and b) everything is better with sweet potatoes. Just ask french fries.

Crab Salad Zucchini Bites

The zucchini is boiled for just a couple of minutes, just so that they become tender. Let them cool, pat them dry, and stuf them with a delicious and refreshing crab salad.

Sambal Chicken Skewers

The glaze just gets mixed around in a saucepan, you toss some with the chicken then boil down the rest until it thickens up, then grill the chicken and brush some sauce while it’s going.

Carbonara Arancini

These are a little labor intensive. Cooking the rice, shredding the cheese, frying the pancetta rolling the balls, dipping them in batter – it’s a job. I don’t want to scare you away, though. They are worth every bit of time and effort required!
