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.
