Making Nachos




You can use multigrain tortillas for a healthy version when having nachos. When making quick nachos add plenty of fresh salsa, chopped tomatoes, chopped olives for a deluxe nachos. Nacho cheese tortilla chips are personally my favorite but I rarely use them for nachos except for special treats instead I go for the multigrain or white corn tortillas for my homemade nachos.
