Heroine’s Fully Loaded Nacho Supreme

Nothing compliments an evening of Netflix and Chilling by yourself like a big plate of nachos. Eating for two isn’t just for pregnant women anymore!

What You’ll Need:

• Leftover “Heroine’s Lit Chilli” (at room temperature) • Doritos (your choice of flavour) • Lettuce • 2 Tomatoes • Chopped Black Olives • 1 White Onion • Cilantro • Cheddar cheese • Sour Cream • Lime Juice • 1 Green Onion

Step 1: Prep your ingredients! Cut your head of lettuce into quarters. Using a grater, begin to shred 1/4 of your lettuce into a bowl.

Step 2: Preheat you over to 350º F.

Step 3: Chop your tomatoes and white onion and add into a mixing bowl. Lightly drizzle with some lime juice and sprinkle in some chopped cilantro. Set this aside.

Step 4: Grate a full block of cheddar cheese. If you’re lactose intolerant you can either stop reading now and find another recipe, or think of this as a new weight loss technique.

Step 5: Open a can of chopped black olives and drain out the juice. You can by whole olives and slice them yourself, but who has the time?

Step 6: On a pizza pan, add one layer of Doritos. The choice of chip is fully up to you. For this recipe, I’m going with the classic nacho. Over top of the Doritos add a layer of tomatoes/onions, then Lit Chilli, shredded lettuce, followed by cheese, and finished with black olives. Repeat these steps as many times as you desire, depending on the portion you want to have. You may need to shred more lettuce. Adding more lettuce can help your delusion that this snack is at all healthy.

Step 7: Once your oven has reached 350º F, place your tray of nachos inside. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted and has a golden hue to it.

Step 8: Pair your nachos with sour cream for dipping. Chop up 1 green onion and mix it into your sour cream for extra flavour.

Now you have the perfect snack to distract from your non existent dating life.

Pride Popsicles

Pride Month is in full swing throughout the city of Toronto. It’s a special time of year when corporations throw their logos on rainbow flags in an attempt to attract the pink dollar and show they’re “supportive” of the community. Staying hydrated in the heat is as crucial as turning off notifications in a group chat. Use your water bottles for their intended purpose of H2o, and get a buzz with one of these frozen cocktail treats instead.

What You’ll Need:

• Popsicle mold kit from Canadian Tire   • plastic wrap   • a ladle   • a funnel   • scissors   • elastic bands    the ingredients for your cocktail of choice.

  • Step 1: Mix your poison. Decide what cocktail you’re craving and add your ingredients into a large bowl. Be as generous as you wish with the ounces, but know your limits. It’s Pride! You do you, boo.
  • Step 2: Line your Popsicle molds with the plastic wrap and then cut it, leaving a few extra inches. I don’t think anyone will say no to a few extra inches this weekend.
  • Step 3: Place the funnel into the mold. Using the ladle, pour in your drink. Do not fill it all the way to the top. Just like with a clingy partner, you’ll need some space.
  • Step 4: Insert the Popsicle stick into the mold. Try your best to place it in the centre. Like walking a straight line in front of a police officer, be as precise as possible.
  • Step 5: Grab the end of the plastic wrap and pull it close to the Popsicle stick. Take an elastic band and wrap it around both. Make sure it’s tight like a burrito, or my dress after a weekend of binge eating burritos.
  • Step 6: Repeat as many times as you desire and then place your treats in the freezer. While you wait, think about that one awkward social encounter you had and replay it over and over again in your mind. How could it have gone better? Why are you like this? This should kill a few hours.

Happy Pride Toronto! Stay safe and have fun! ♥
