Jaymz had caught on by now and was super scared to try it but he did and this was his reaction…

In reality we had Sweet Dessert Nachos and Chicken Enchilada Casserole Cupcakes for Dinner!

April Fools Day Dinner, Nachos & CupcakesThe Sweet Dessert Nachos were really easy to make. I bought Cinnamon chips as the base (I could have made them but it was way easier to buy them). I made a simple buttercream icing and dyed it light orange to drizzle over the chips to look like cheese. I added raisins for the black beans and some strawberry jam for salsa. Then came cut Sour Patch Bites for jalapeños and red candy ropes for tomatoes. Lastly I added a dollop of yogurt on top for sour cream.

The Chicken Enchilada Casserole Cupcakes were also pretty easy to make. I lined my muffin tins with paper since I always do that when I make cupcakes. I then cut tortillas into circles and laid one tortilla circle in each muffin tin.

I then mixed the filling combining shredded chicken, colby and monterey jack cheese, green chilies, sour cream, and tomatillo salsa. I then put a scoop of the filling in the tin, added another tortilla, and another layer of the chicken. I topped them with another tortilla and baked them until 165 degrees in the center.

I let them cool in the pan for five minutes and then transferred them to a cooling rack where I topped the cupcakes with sour cream for icing/frosting and finely diced bell peppers for sprinkles.

*They were a little hard to get out of the paper, but looked great.  Although, I do wonder if I sprayed them with cooking spray if it would make it any easier.
