Extra Tasty Nacho Chips and Cheese

"Woah, baby! I have this snack pretty frequently with multiple variations because I use whatever is available in my fridge -- last night I hit the el-primo combination. I will definitely use this combo over and over from now on. I hope you like this great brunch (or midnight) snack as much as I did, my friends!"

Ready In:




  • Lay out the chips on a microwave-proof plate.
  • Add all the toppings except for the salsa and Tabasco, layering the cheese on last.
  • Microwave on the high setting for one minute.
  • Sprinkle on the Tabasco and spoon the salsa on to the gooey chips as you eat them. I use medium hot salsa and I prefer the Bellview brand to all others (except for home made.).

  1. Made this yesterday for a snack and I did add some onions to the nachos and used some fresh diced jalapenos. I had Recipe#318416#318416 by chef#916598#916598 to top them with. Very good and simple recipe. Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y 2009.
  2. My wife has been making something like this for years, she uses green olives ( does not like black ) and some fine diced onion under the cheese... Great recipe Bone Man Thanks!


<p>I am a retired State Park Resort Manager/Ranger. <br /><br />Anyway, as to my years in the State Park System (retired now), I was responsible for 4 restaurants/dining rooms on my park and my boss at Central Headquarters said I should spend less time in my kitchens and more time tending to my park budget. I spent 25 years in those kitchens and worked with some really great chefs over those years, (and some really awful ones too!) <br /><br />I spent THOUSANDS of hours on every inch of that park and adjacent state forest (60,000 acres) and sometimes I miss it. But mostly I miss being in that big beautiful resort lodge kitchen. I miss my little marina restaurant down on the Ohio River too. I served the best Reuben Sandwich (my own recipe -- posted on 'Zaar as The Shawnee Marina Reuben Sandwich) in both the State of Ohio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky down there and sold it for $2.95. Best deal on the river! <br /><br />They (friends and neighbors) call my kitchen The Ospidillo Cafe. Don't ask me why because it takes about a case of beer, time-wise, to explain the name. Anyway, it's a small galley kitchen with a Mexican motif (until my wife catches me gone for a week or so), and it's a very BUSY kitchen as well. We cook at all hours of the day and night. You are as likely to see one of my neighbors munching down over here as you are my wife or daughter. I do a lot of recipe experimentation and development. It has become a really fun post-retirement hobby -- and, yes, I wash my own dishes. <br /><br />Also, I'm the Cincinnati Chili Emperor around here, or so they say. (Check out my Ospidillo Cafe Cincinnati Chili recipe). SKYLINE CHILI is one of my four favorite chilis, and the others include: Gold Star Chili, Empress Chili and, my VERY favorite, Dixie. All in and around Cincinnati. Great stuff for cheap and I make it at home too. <br /><br />I also collect menus and keep them in my kitchen -- I have about a hundred or so. People go through them and when they see something that they want, I make it the next day. That presents some real challenges! <br /><br />http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/parks/parks/shawnee.htm</p>
