That all depends on who made them, good homemade nachos use real melted cheese, and beef.

Mmmmmmm. Nachos...

Same here. It's REAL good with added stuff like tomatoes and peppers and gaucamole and refried beans. YUM!

salsa. salsa is definitely a good addition. as is guacamole and sour cream. then you have that whole hot/cold, crispy/creamy thing, with the juiciness of the salsa....

and yes, homemade, with _real_ cheese.

Thanks for the explanation, mouse. ^^

The nacho part was easy; it was the soggy part that confused me. I must try it someday. I will. Unfortunately, Tex Mex cuisine is usually expensive for me. Better start saving now. =]

Homemade... Do you make the tortilla chips by yourself too? If yes, could you share the recipe? If not, could you post your favourite sauce recipe?

I like experimenting in the kitchen. A lot Twisted Evil

Don't bother making tortilla chips. It is waaaay easier to buy them at the store and they taste just as good. In TX, a lot of the grocery stores would have "deli" chips that they made often. You could easily go to the store and get a bag of warm, restraunt style tortilla chips. Yummy!

Salsa from scratch can't be that bad to make but I have never tried it. I do make guacamole from scratch. Fresh avacados FTW!

And I like nachos with beans and cheese so soggy happens quite a bit. I like the cheese melting and the chips fairly crisp though. However, I eat a lot of foods oddly. I will roll a cheeto between my fingers so I get a lot of the cheese off before I eat the crisp. When I have enough built up cheese, I eat it and start again.

I couldn't help but start to giggle because I instantly imagined you seducing people by licking the cheese off your fingers.

Fiona's got the right of it, just get the chips from the store. Making them is hell, I say this as a person who could set a glass of water on fire though so take from it what you may.

chips are not actually that hard, if you go for baking them - just cut some tortillas in wedges, stick them in a 400 deg. oven for a few minutes, et voila!

if you really want to go the whole hand-made way, alton brown did a show - even included making chips.

and salsa is dead easy - just takes a lot of chopping. you could do it in a food processor, but you have to be careful not to puree it.

But it happens! You are just quietly eating cheetos and all of a sudden guys are throwing themselves down in front of you. It is kind of disconcerting.

... I want cheetos now.

And <3s to Alton Brown. I may give that a shot since no stores around here make tortilla chips. Which makes me very sad.

Oh, if you can't find any ripe avacados (and sometimes you can't), the stuff in a bag isn't so bad. They are a bit bland but extra spice makes up for that. Nothing beats fresh though.

Ok, thanks, now I'll go and demolish my kitchen Twisted Evil

The last time I did guacamole... Yeah I managed, but it required lots of cleaning up Smile
