#AtoZChallenge – Nachos

This month we’ve taken on a challenge – one that involves blogging through the alphabet. Our theme for the challenge is food so stop on by and share your favorite nacho topping.

Nachos…such a simple yet yummy dish.

Whenever we do nachos for ourselves or our boys we start with home made chips. We take thin white corn tortillas purchased from a local grocery store, cut each one into four pieces, and fry them in peanut oil.

Our boys most of the time will eat just chips, with some melted cheddar cheese on top (in the microwave for just a few seconds until it melts on the chips) and Little T likes a side of homemade salsa with his while Drama King prefers guacamole.

Sometimes they get in the mood for liquid cheese instead of melted cheese.

Super Nachos is a household favorite where we take chips, melt cheese on them and top it with seasoned ground beef, fresh salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and jalapeños.
