NACHOS – FROM A NACHO LOVER

March 25, 2008

NACHOS has been always my family’s favorite dish. Anytime we like to go to a Mexican joint we picture ourselves eating a big platter of nachos served with guacamole and sour cream.

I do sometime at home but this time I tried making entire dish from the scratch. It was so satisfying and we loved to have it once again. My husband was returning from business trip and I wanted to have something different apart from the regular diet. Although Biryani always tops in the list but nachos are also very much coveted.

I tried Tarla dalal version of making Tortilla chips with small variation of adding garlic powder.

I also referred to sailus version

Infact I made salsa quite similar to her and I just added more jalapenos to make it more spicy.

I am a great fan of Avocado so anything relating to avocados is hard to resist for me. It is very expensive and sometimes a rare commodity to find it here. So whenever I find it I buy in bulk.

Guacamole is excellent dip made from avocado and goes very well nachos.

We had ready made sour cream and it was divine.

    they look right out of a restaurant! i can’t believe you made the actual nachos yourself! We’re lucky in Houston, we have tons of great Mexican foods easily available and made fresh daily.
