Recipe: Easy, Delicious Nachos

The husband was out of town for a few days and to welcome him back, the kids wanted to help make a special dinner.  With three little ones in the kitchen, I wanted to make something easy.  No mess.  Not much clean-up (well, as little clean-up as possible).  We excitedly agreed on nachos.  Nachos = happy kids!  And I also found out, nachos = happy husband.

These delicious nachos were so easy to make.... just a bunch of layers piled high.  And, to make it even easier, I bought all the toppings already prepared, no chopping involved! (pre-cut vegetables are packaged in a container in the produce aisle at my local grocery store, I love it!)

Delicious Nachos Recipe

  • lightly salted tortilla chips, about a 14oz bag
  • pico de gallo (there is usually a variety... original, black bean, corn, mango, pineapple or a combination - I like to combine the original in mild, original in medium, and one made with a mixture of black beans and corn).  For a full baking sheet piled high, I buy about 48oz.
  • 1c green onions
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 24oz cheddar cheese
Directions (looks long, but it's not):
  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • line baking sheet with aluminum foil
  • spread tortilla chips in a thin layer covering entire baking sheet
  • sprinkle thin layer of shredded cheddar cheese over chips
  • spoon about 12oz of pico de gallo mixture over cheese
  • sprinkle green onions over pico de gallo
  • sprinkle an extra-thin layer of shredded cheddar cheese over onions
  • add more chips
  • add thin layer of cheese
  • add more pico de gallo
  • a little bit of onions
  • little bit of cheese
  • more chips
  • more cheese
  • pico de gallo
  • some onions
  • cheese
  • chips again
  • lots of cheese
  • top with pico all over the top
  • sprinkle with cilantro
  •  place baking sheet on middle rack in oven for about 15 min, until top cheese is golden brown and cheese in middle has warmed and melted
  • remove from oven

Serve immediately to hungry little ones and a happy husband!  We add guacamole on the side (I bought our guac already made too, so convenient and HEB has an awesome one that's pretty close to homemade).  No forks involved, dig in! 

You could also add sour cream, salsa, a squeeze of lime, chicken, beef, olives, sliced avocados or even more cheese!  Who doesn't love more cheese!  Yum!
