Cause I Feel That When I'm With You, It's Alright

Individual Pan Nachos
I found myself alone on a night that I really craved a personalized meal.  It was after work so time was limited but I had plenty of my freshly made roasted hot sauce.  Nachos were a first choice but I needed a twist, something to make it special. Usually I leave off the toppings so we can build them how we both enjoy best, either loaded or sparse.  I melt cheddar and jalapeno only on the chips and then serve the condiments on the side.  These new kale chips burn too easily though.  Besides I knew I wanted mounds of pintos, properly seasoned beef and cheese so I prepared the toppings in an iron skillet and finished under the broiler.  
Then I served all rustic like, knowing it was a glutenous portion but I would not eat more than my fill.  It was just nice to know it was there.  It was delightful.  That's the word I would describe the feeling of being alone but not lonely, anticipating a good meal and then to enjoy it intimately.  I used whole pintos as well as vegan smashed 'refried' beans mixed with seasoned ground beef, onion, garlic, jalapenos,tomatoes and plenty of shredded cheddar.
