Not Soggy Nachos (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Better For You Appetizers)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 17, 2009 @ 3:11 am In Appetizers,Main Dishes,Meal Planning,Recipes,URS | 25 Comments


Like I mentioned earlier [5], several nights a week are spent engaged in watching football games at our house. The boys love to watch. FishPapa loves to watch. FishChick loves to be wherever they are.

Me? I’m just there for the food.

And football season is all about food as far as I’m concerned. As you know, we love Mexican food [6] around here. And last week when all the very-expensive-not-bought-with-a-coupon-simply-because-we-wanted-them taco shells turned out to be shards of broken, unsalvageable taco shells, I thought quickly on my feet. I knew we had tortilla chips and we obviously had taco fixings. So we made nachos.

But, not your ordinary nachos. Oh no.


I made nachos that don’t get soggy.

{And all God’s children said, “Amen.”}

Instead of piling all the toppings onto a pile of chips and letting the whole mess go mushy, I piled all the toppings onto a small plate Everybody made his own custom dip with chips on the side. And since I provided lots of healthy toppings, I didn’t feel bad that our family was also eating a ton of tortilla chips. (You could always served baked chips, if you want.)
