How to Make Nachos. Nachos are a great snack for entertaining guests or satisfying munchies. Plus, you can adapt your nachos to whatever you've got in the fridge. Makes enough for one good-sized snack.
Put a layer of tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate.
Add salsa or taco sauce.
Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of chips. Use cheddar, Monterey Jack or a combination of the two.
Heat on high in the microwave for 45 seconds or until cheese is melted.
Dice a tomato, slice an avocado and chop some dhives. Have sliced olives ready.
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.
