How do you like your nachos?

Basic recipe is to through cheese on chips, throw chips in microwave. Top with sour cream and salsa.

Any other ideas?

I put chips in the bottom of a pan, warm up refried beans and spead over them. Then I sprinkle a fair amount of shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top, sometimes chopped scallions and sliced black olives and pop in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly. The you can add salsa or sour cream or guacamole etc. Yum!

First place the chips on the plate, then salsa, then leftover taco meat, then cheese. Put in microwave till cheese melts (everything else will warm too). After you take it out add chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream - ultimate nachos!

Microwave makes the cheese rubbery. I like the cheese better if it's been melted under the broiler.

Layer chips, cheese, veggies (diced fresh tomatoes, olives, green onions, jalapenos, etc) in that order; chicken or ground beef if you want. Broil until cheese is melted. Serve with guac and/or sour cream on the side.

So true, if you do it in the microwave you have to eat them virutally right when you pull them out, otherwise they cool too fast and turn into rubber like you said.

I have never noticed any difference if the cheese was melted under the broiler or in the microwave. Maybe it has to do with the kind of cheese. I shred Tilamook Extra Sharp Chedder for mine.

But, I did notice that the broiler nachos were crispier while the microwave nachos tended to get a little soggy.

I still use the microwave if I only want a few nachos, and the broiler if I want a whole tray full.

I think the refried beans sound like a nice touch.

What about a can of green chili peppers?

And some chopped olives?

And some scallions?

Cilantro?

Pitcher of cold beer?

I think summer is coming soon!

Cilantro - good stuff. I love it on nachos, along with beans, jalepenos, some good taco meat, sour cream, salsa (preferably green), lettuce, and queso. Skip the tomatoes on mine, please, but give me green onions if you got 'em! YUM.
