I love nachos -probably because I love chips and I love cheese.
Last time I made them slightly differently (published on recipeyum.com.au) -they are quite easy to make as you CAN buy all the ingredients if you want to save time.
I also order them at a cafe sometimes though often find the servings very big and I have to eat the lot! No willpower.....
They are not the healthiest, but oh so yummy
Yes, I make them at home sometimes, but I'm vegetarian and don't eat dairy products so most cafes don't make nachos I can eat. There is one locally that does and I've ordered them there once. It came with avocado, various vegetables, veggie mince and cashew "sour cream" and was very tasty.
I would definitely order nachos with all the trimmings. Salsa, guacamole, sour cream and cheese...great for a treat.
I have made them at home but they don't turn out as well as the shop bought variety (perhaps I should keep trying!)
Oh Gosh! I just LOVE nachos!!!! But I only order them when eating out if I am with someone who also loves them so that we can share!!!! Otherwise I have to ask if I can take a huge amount home with me !!!
Jules -they are so easy to make at home and the quantity you like -did you check out recipeyum? I did one but I made the salsa which you can buy but as you seem to grow a lot, the salsa was no trouble, though I think you have mentioned you have a problem with your hands....easy and quick!
I have indeed made these at home,and they are so good for us as well as being easy to do!!! I must say that now that my hands give me so much trouble,I DO use some of the ready made 'parts' like the salsa!!! I like to do my own avocado/guacamole though!! There are so many wonderfully delicious as well as nutritious meals out there if we just think outside of the old 'meat and 3 veg' box so many folk still live with day after day!!!! I got some fabulous Coleslaw mix reduced at Coles to 25 cents the other day,and I stir fried it rather than make coleslaw with it!!! Oh Yum!!! It was scrumptious!!!
I love nachos but I don't order them at a cafe because I am quite capable of making them at home. I don't really eat them very often. If we have friends over, I might make them, as a snack. They are quick and easy to prepare and can satisfy the tastebuds of a crowd.
