Lisa's Spicy Nachos
The other night I made these nachos for a snack. Nachos make a good appetizer, though if you load on the cheese like I do, they are filling enough to serve as a meal. I make a different version every time. For this batch, I spread some spicy blue corn tortilla chips over a baking sheet. Then, I layered the chips with some grated aged Cheddar cheese, pickled hot peppers, diced dill pickle, and finely chopped onion. To finish off, I sprinkled some hot pepper flakes and a pinch of cayenne over the top. Broil in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts and begins to brown.
Other suggested toppings: diced firm tomato, corn kernels, goat cheese, chopped jalapeños, finely chopped garlic and fried mushrooms. Serve with some salsa sauce or a homemade simple tomato chutney.
