Recipe - Nachos


Nachos are very popular snack. Even though burrito is originated from Mexico, the ingredients used in nacho are almost the same in burritos too. Different types of nachos are available at the fast food restaurants. In lot of Mexican restaurants, nachos are served with refried beans and nacho cheese with corn chips. Where as in the fast food chains, macho ingredients includes bean, cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, salsa, guacamole and sour cream, with corn chips

I make nachos at home very regularly. My husband loves nachos with lot of salad on it. Nachos are very easy to make, if all the ingredients are ready in the house. I use store bought salsa, guacamole, beans, sour cream and corn chips. This saves my time and energy and a quick dinner/snack to the family specially at the end of a busy working day.
