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.
