Teriyaki Chicken Black Bean Nachos


Chicken (boneless & skinless)

Black Beans


Cheddar and Monterrey Jack Cheeses

Poblano Pepper, Onion

Lettuce (optional), Tomato, Sour Cream

Spices: Teriyaki (NOT the thick style... Kikkoman with the orange label is what I use), Minced Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Chili Powder, Oregano or Cilantro, Red Pepper Sauce (I tend to use Cholula but have used others)


Mix spices together in a measuring cup to taste. This allows you to control the heat. (aka: What, me measure?)

Dice chicken

Pour marinade over chicken and let sit for 30 minutes. Dice Onion and Poblano while you wait.

Heat wok or frying pan, then add enough oil to just coat the bottom.

Add chicken and cook on medium. Add poblano and onion after 2 minutes or so.


Continue to cook until liquid has cooked down. If needed, deglaze with liquor (I tend to use vodka, Grand Marnier, or scotch... I reach into the cabinet and grab).


Rinse beans, especially if canned. Heat in microwave until hot. Grate cheese, dice tomato, and tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces.


Arrange chips on plate or bowl. Top with chicken, beans, and cheeses. Microwave for about 1 minute, until cheese is melted.


Top with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

Ahh, here is that thread:

Whiskey Candied Pecans


It's actually super easy. Half cup brown sugar, maybe half a teaspoon (or something like that) cinnamon (and/or nutmeg, and/or ginger), 2 Tablespoons whiskey. Put those in a frying pan. Turn the heat on medium or mid high depending on your stove. Let it get nice and bubbly. Add 1 cup pecans. Stir well and cook until pecans are toasted and sauce is trying to burn (5-8 minutes or so). Spread the nuts on aluminum foil, or sprayed parchment making sure it is on a heat proof surface (they will be very hot). Let cool and break apart. 


Or, actually it's just this recipe (I did not spot any commerce bits on the mobile page): 



Just replace the water with whiskey.

      This is Reaper's 60164: Vampire Hunter, as she is rather innocently called. She is remarkably armed and armored. I think she is from Pathfinder, and I am sure there is some story there.
      There is no WIP thread.
      Comments and critiques are, as always, welcomed.

      This is the female vampire hunter, BFM MLS008 from Bad Squiddo Games.
      There is no WIP thread.
      As always, comments and critiques are welcome.
      I painted her up as a Latina because something about her outfit felt a little Spanish Baroque to me.

      Bad Squiddo Games put out this set of four vampire hunters (from rather different eras), SKU: BFM MLS007. Some parts of some of the sculpts are a little crude. In the end I think I painted them rather roughly, but then my sympathies tend to lie on the other side.
      There is no WIP.

      I think of this guy as the Dum-Dum Dugan of the group.
      This one just seemed disreputable, almost as scary as the monsters he hunts.



      This guy could be any sort of modernish cowboy or frontiersman, I think.



      I painted up the Baroque one as Latino and imagined him dealing with infestations in colonial California.


      This isn't a great angle, except I like how his chained book turned out. We have some old books about, and the ancient worn leather does tend to look like that.

      This is Hasslefree's HFA181: Big Charles, painted up as a vampire (although he could do duty for something else awful and inhuman as well, maybe a zombie). I had accidentally acquired two of him and this seemed a reasonable use for the extra one, especially since one of my GMs is running a vampire-heavy campaign.
      He hasn't got a shadow on purpose because vampire ...
