Three Cheese Baked Nachos

 

One thing I have learned about making tasty nachos is the importance of selecting the right cheese blend.  I came across the amazing blend used in this recipe by combining cheeses I already had in my fridge.  Unlike your regular baked nachos topped with Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, these nachos are topped with a unique blend of old cheddar, mozzarella, and shaved parmigiano reggiano cheeses.  The combination goes perfectly together and complements the fresh vegetables and chicken sausage atop the base of salty tortilla chips.  You can change the vegetables to your preference or omit the chicken sausage for a vegetarian version.

 

 

 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Nachos

 

  1. Broil carefully:  Watch the nachos carefully while they are broiling as they can burn quickly.
  2. Eat immediately:  These nachos taste best when they are warm and the cheese is melted and gooey.  Eat them immediately after they have cooled for a few minutes.
