We love nachos. And we also love steak and
cheese sandwiches. Put them together and you have the super-delicious (and very SuperBowl
appropriate) Steak and Cheese Nachos! We use the traditional shaved steak, sauteed peppers and
American cheese from the classic sandwich, but mix that with a tangier cheddar in a spicy
cheese sauce. Garnish with any nacho toppings to make a great 'fusion' dish that's just good
eating for any man-cave or SuperBowl party!
For our wine pairing, we've taken a similar approach of picking SuperBowl-oriented options. Our
"Splurge" is made from a thick, chewy, high-tannin variety, Petite Sirah, from California
producer Spellbound. For our "Steal", we're breaking from tradition and featuring a BEER
(insert shock and gasp here). Listen, it's the SuperBowl. And even if you're a wine lover,
sometimes you just want a beer!

maintaining class. ($16)

If the Petite Sirah above were a wine, it would be a
Guinness. Dark, complex and smooth. ($8-$10/6)
