There are many ways we can make Nachos. Most simple version is tortilla chip with cheese sauce. But my personal favorite is a fully loaded version with veggies. Vegetable Nachos are quite simple & easy to make & go great as snacks/starters/appetizers.
There are no real measurements required for this recipe. Moreover you can use any vegetables of your choice.
1 Tortilla chips packet (I used Doritos nachos cheese flavor)
1-2 cups of Grated Cheese (I used combination of Mozzarella & mild cheddar)
1/4 red capsicum finely chopped
1/4 green capsicum finely chopped
1/4 red onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped (avoid using the inside pulp of tomatoes only use the sides)
Few jalapenos (optional)
Coriander for garnishing
salt & pepper to taste
Start your oven on Broiler mode. In a serving dish (make sure its oven/microwave safe), layer the tortilla chips evenly.
Sprinkle some grated/shredded mozzarella cheese (as little or more as much as you like).
Now add all the veggies evenly followed by coriander & sprinkle some salt & pepper on top.
Tip: You can also roast your veggies on a pan before adding them to Nachos.
Top it with some jalapenos
Followed by some more cheese (mild cheddar).
Now keep the Serving dish in the Oven on broiler mode for about 5 mins or till the cheese starts to melt.
Once the cheese has melted, switch the oven to Bake mode at 350F & let it bake for 2 mins. If you are using a microwave, micro the dish for about 2 mins or till the cheese melts.
That's it our Vegetable Nachos are ready!! Serve them with guacamole & sour cream or simply on their own.
