I curated these recipes while working with Foodie.com. All opinions are my own.
By far my favorite thing about the summer is spending time outdoors. We often get so caught up in playing games and working in the yard that we don’t make time for elaborate dinners. We throw together tasty ingredients, often leftovers, and eat together late in the evening as the sun sets. These meals are simple but delicious.
The key to these simple meals is using only a few ingredients that are high quality. Here are my recommendations:
- The day before cook our Crock Pot Apple-BBQ Pork. Save a little bit of the meat, if that’s even possible ;).
- You don’t want tortilla chips for this, instead opt for something light and airy. I used Van’s Gluten Free barbecue chips. They’re sweet and tangy and have a really incredible texture. Plus they’re gluten free, which is really important to our family right now.
- Layer chips with cheese and pork and then broil them until the cheese is melted. Don’t you dare use that microwave!
- The secret ingredient to making these so so good is adding fresh, sweet coleslaw. Trust me.
- Drizzle on sour cream, I actually added a touch of milk to ours to make it thinner; that way you don’t get big chunks on each chip, just a delicate little touch.
- Garnish with fresh, chopped green onions. Don’t be stingy with those!
