game day nachos

January 18th, 2012

I won’t lie… I was really hoping to post this if the Houston team made it to the Superbowl — how fun would that have been?  Even as a brand new Texan, it was hard not to get excited when every Monday, all anyone could talk about is whether or not the Texans would keep winning.  So this weekend was a little sad!

But no matter who’s playing, nachos are always delicious.  You can’t really beat a combination of chips, cheese, guac, salsa, sour cream and chives — throw on some grilled chicken and you’ve got yourself a whole meal! 

Chad and I used to regularly order nachos at one of our favorite restaurants in our neighborhood in New York, and while the Tex Mex here is pretty amazing, we somehow haven’t found a go-to nacho dish in quite the same way.  So for the immediate future, at least, I’m going to stick to making our own!



6-8 cups tortilla chips
3 cups shredded cheddar Cheese or Mexican cheese mix
2/3 cup salsa
2/3 cup guacamole
1/2 cup sour cream
3 large chopped scallions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Arrange a layer of tortilla chips along the bottom of a wide, shallow baking pan.  Sprinkle a generous amount of grated cheese over the top of chips, and bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Add dollops of salsa, sour cream and guacamole, and another thinner layer of cheese, and broil at 500 degrees F for about 2 minutes.  Sprinkle with chopped scallions and serve.

    This made me so hungry! Great idea for an easy-to-make game day treat! (Or really – any day treat.)

    Thanks for reminding me that I can make these tonight!  I even have the scallions, which to me make it seem like a “special” dish.  ­čÖé
