Cinco de Mayo is only a few days away and we’ve got all the ingredients you need to throw a Mexican fiesta. Finger food? Appetizers? How about NACHOS? We’ve gathered the ultimate nacho recipe that will blow your guests away and have them cheering in Spanish.
Nachos… when done right, are the perfect food; hot and crispy corn tortilla chips, melty cheese, and all the toppings. We like our nachos fully loaded – seasoned ground beef, avocados or guacamole, salsa, sour cream, green onions, cilantro – we want it all.
- tortilla chips of choice
- 1/2 cup cooked seasoned ground taco meat
- 1/2 -3/4 cups shredded cheddar and mozzarella
- sliced green onions
- jalapeño slices
- 1/2 avocado, cubed
- roughly chopped cilantro
- sour cream
Place platter in the oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 to 10 minutes. Just be careful not to overcook – you want warm melty stringy cheese, not crispy. Also, the point of these nachos is that each chip is perfectly topped. It takes a little bit of extra effort to layer each chip individually, but it is totally worth it because when you sit down to eat, you can just shove them in your mouth without thinking about which chip has the most cheese and toppings.
If you’re looking for something less traditional, we’ve got a great mix of platters: cheese and deli, fruit and veggie – you name it. While you’re picking up your nacho ingredients be sure to ask us about our perfect platters.
