Foodie Friday - Cheesy Nachos

Today I bring an easy special treat for our Foodie Friday recipe show off day.  This fun event is hosted by Michael from Designs by Gollum.  You have to go there and see all the cool recipes everyone posted. 

These nachos we love because they are easy to make and so much fun to eat.  If you keep the ingredients handy you can make a nice treat for unexpected company or hey, how about Monday night football!


Tostitos scoop chips - they are perfect for holding in all cheese and salsa!
Tostitos restaurant style salsa - how hot you say?  Your choice, we always do mild.
Shredded Mexican cheese or any mix of cheese you like.

Place the scoop chips on a microwave safe plate.
Fill each little scoop with salsa.
Top with cheese.

Microwave on high for 1 to 1.5 minutes - until cheese is melted.

Top each scoop with a dab of sour cream and diced avocado (optional).

Note:  you can also broil this using an oven safe plate or cookie sheet, put it in the middle rack, set the over to broil and watch it until cheese is melted; only takes about 5 minutes.


No really..... Enjoy!!


  1. What a great quick and easy idea for a snack. Thanks for sharing with us. Have a great day.

  2. Hi Yira! Your nachos look delicious! I make nacho's that are similar, but I've never used the scoop chips, and I like your idea of dumping the sour cream right on them, rather than leaving it on the side. Your way is much better. It's like getting a little bowl of yum in every bite! Have a great weekend sweetie! Hugs, Paulette =D

  3. I love to make nacho for the boys on football sundays. THANKS!!! Geri
