Ultimate Nacho


Ok I'll admit I did buy one non-produce related item the other day on my trip which I claimed was purely healthy grocery shopping. Meijer Organics Blue Corn Tortilla Chips which to my defense look very interesting. These chips are really different from your regular corn chip as they are filled with sesame seeds. Its a unique addition and gives the chip a very good flavor. I also picked up some cheese. Alright fine! It wasn't as healthy an expedition the other day as I thought. But its the kind of cheese you only eat a little bit of. You don't grate the whole block and bake it or something. Extra sharp Cheddar from Wisconsin. You can understand, right?

Well what resulted from my grocery expedition is what I like to call, The Ultimate Nacho. I've had a lot of nachos in my life mind you, I don't know if I qualify to be a Nacho expert, but I'm confident that I'm pretty up there in terms of tasting a lot of them. I figure these Nacho's deserve some kind of fancy Mexican Party where I serve them as hors d'oeuvres.


Ultimate Nachos
12 Meijer Blue Corn Tortilla Chips with sesame, 1/2 an avocado in large cubes, 1 small roma tomato diced, 1 tbsp chopped green onion, 2 tbsp minced red onion, 1/2 jalapeno pepper minced, juice of 1/2 lime, 1 tbsp chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to taste, sharp cheddar cheese of your choice


1. To make the salsa, combine the tomato, red onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper.
2. Take a peeler and shave off 12 pieces of cheddar cheese squares.
3. Lay out the nachos on a plate.
4. Top each one with the cheddar cheese, 1 cube of avocado, and 1 spoon of the salsa.
5. Garnish with the green onion.
