Nachos!

Postby Whiterook » Fri Apr 07, 2017 8:58 pm

I love a big 'ol plate of nachos!

I had some for lunch today...yeah, I said lunch...and it was just awesome. While eating them, I was thinking to myself, that I have NEVER had a plate of nachos that I didn't just plain devour in delight and enjoyment.

Usually, it's home made, and just simple tortilla chips, with salsa and cheese. I know, pretty basic, but it hits the spit every time. I especially like them if the salsa is a scorcher.

Now move to the big leagues with refried beans, taco seasoned hamburg, sour cream, sliced jalepeno...et al....and we're talking orgasmic!

:?: Hmmmmmm....what kind of chips? I am assuming tortilla, but what kinds are you using (e.g., white corn, blue, etc....and brand). I never thought to do that with tortilla chips!

I've got into hummus in a big was this past year or so. Sabra is my absolute fav.

I've been using tortilla chips, but If I find the pita-style chips, I'll grab a bag..

I've discovered that the restauraunt, Chipoltle.... they make nacho chips with a lime and salt seasoning, and sell them in take out bags. I don't know how they do these, but I suspect the throw the fresh made tortilla chips in a giant bowl of salt and lime seasoning and toss them. The lime is literally impregnated (that's a horrible word when talking about food, actually...but it fits) in the chips....

Anyway...make a plate of nachos with salsa and non-dairy cheese, with some slice jalapeños and I am a happy boy!!!

Agreed, those are pretty great.

I like to get some of the white cheese dip and spread taco seasoned hamburger and cheese over the chips and microwave until the cheese is melted. Then dip that in the white cheese... Oh Oh good.

Making me hungry and I just ate lunch.
