Do you want an incredibly EASY meal that is full of flavor? Well, this is one of them! I have absolutely no why it’s called Texas Straw Hat besides for the fact that it could look like a straw hat…okay, now, it makes sense why it’s called a straw hat
This recipe was adapted from Southern Plate. I added some additional ingredients for more veggies/protein and used blue corn chips instead of regular corn chips– because I LOVE blue corn chips. We ate this meal like nachos, and then when the chips were gone, we used the fork as a shovel This could absolutely serve 4, but when a meal is so delicious, it sometimes only is able to serve 2, maybe 3. I’m doubling this recipe next time, so we have more leftovers!!
