Microwave Cheese Nachos Tips :

If you’ve ever been to a Chiquito (UK) or Taco Bel (US) Mexican style restaurant, you’ll probably have noticed that their nachos have way more than just cheese on them. Here’s the description from Chiquito’s actual menu for Fully Loaded Nachos

Fully Loaded Nachos £9.95
A huge portion of seasoned, baked and layered nachos, piled high
and topped with sour cream, guacamole, salsa and your favourite
ingredients. Choose from: Classic salsa, spicy chicken or beef chilli


So if you want you want your nachos like theirs without having it costing you £10, then just

  • Grab all the toppings listed above from your local supermarket (when I say grab, don’t just grab them and run out of the shop. Please pay for the stuff first).
    • As an alternative to spicy chicken or beef chilli you can buy a pack of chicken pieces or pastrami. For the Mexican effect splash a few drops of Tabasco sauce over it.
  • Chuck the toppings on the nachos with the cheese.
  • Zap it all in the microwave for maybe a little longer than a minute depending on how high you pile the toppings.
