Step 3

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of chips. Use cheddar, Monterey Jack or a combination of the two.

Step 4

Heat on high in the microwave for 45 seconds or until cheese is melted.

Step 5

Dice a tomato, slice an avocado and chop some dhives. Have sliced olives ready.

Step 6

Top with sour cream, black olives, canned or fresh chiles, sliced avocados or chives.



Add refried beans, ground beef or grilled chicken over the salsa for a heartier nacho. For a low-fat version, use reduced-fat or fat-free cheese and sour cream. If you don't have a microwave, heat up your nachos in a 400-degree oven.
