Doing it either under the broiler or in the oven gives you soft, melted cheese and everything is nice and warm.
And it takes very little time - nachos in ten minutes or less, especially if you keep prepped ingredients on hand!
Step 1: What You'll Need:
- plate of tortilla chips
- beans or meat of choice
- diced veggies
- two handfuls shredded cheese
- a broiler or oven set to 375 F
- an oven safe plate
Step 2: Veggies!
Step 3: Meat or Beans... or Both.
Step 4: Add the Cheese!
You want it to be nicely covered, but not drowning in it.
Step 5: Broil or Bake!
In a preheated 375 F oven, it will take closer to 5 minutes.
You just want the cheese to be fully melted, but not browned. Once it's starting to brown you're on the way to burnt city. :D
These are awesome served with sour cream or guacamole. (Need a guacamole recipe? I've got one!) We like to mix a little hot sauce into sour cream - it's especially good that way!
