meatless monday: an experiment of nachos

hit me with that dip!

hit me with that dip!

i had the sudden realization that i hadn’t made much mexican of late, decision made let’s do nachos. note do not make nachos when you are SUPER HUNGRY. your plate turns into this giant mound of chips, beans, avocado, tomaotes, salsa, cheeses. the disappointing factor about the nachos was how the bottom chips became pure sog of beans and cheese. i won’t lie about my solution to the problem, it was to then go get the bag of tortilla chips and scoop up that soggie mess. while the nachos were yummy that blob of a mess they turned into was a real disappoint. i however was not ready to give up. a few days later i took the nacho ingredients i had leftover and created a layered bean dip. now that is the way to go…..dip, no sog of a mess but a well balance of all the fine mexican ingredients into one yummy bite after the other on crisp salty tortilla chips.

  1. LOL. In college my roommates and I used to grab a huge brownie try and make nachos on super hungry nights. Here is how we did it: Place a layer of tortilla chips in the tray, topped by a layer of shredded cheddar cheese. Bake until cheese is melted. Finally, remove from oven and top with beans, grilled chicken, bell peppers, onions, sour cream and guac! I think baking it with the cheese by itself helps prevent sogging. Either way, I am a firm believer that every nacho night is a good night.

    • Well I did bake and I have to use dairy free cheese which although they claim to melt they never do. I think when it comes down to it I just like an equal distribution of ingredients on each chip, I think I’m a dip girl! Your nachos sound yummy hope you made a batch of them for ol’time!
