I have a confession to make. I may have an obsession with Nachos. It is the first thing I look for in a menu whenever I go to a restaurant. It hurts me to pay so much for something as basic as Nachos, but I just cannot help it!

My mother is an excellent cook. She realised my love for Nachos and helped me recreate this very popular snacks into a new version called, “loaded nachos”. They are different from the nachos served with melted cheese dip and salsa sauce only. These nachos require no extra dips and are super delicious! The best part about this is, it doesn’t require a microwave. This is what makes this recipe unique.

Serves: 2

Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 packet of Cheese Flavoured Nachos
  2. 2 grated Cheese cubes
  3. 1 chopped Onion
  4. 1 chopped Capsicum
  5. 1 chopped Baby Corn
  6. 4 teaspoons of Olive oil
  7. 6 tablespoons of Milk
  8. 1 teaspoon refined flour
  9. 1 tablespoon spice mix or Oregano

Procedure: 

  1. Spread the Nachos on a plate.
  2. Sauté chopped vegetables in olive oil on a tava, with the spice mix. Keep cooking until the vegetables are pinkish to retain the crunchiness.
  3. Heat the milk in a pan, but not boiling. Add grated cheese, half a teaspoon of refined flour and keep mixing until it reaches a paste like consistency. (Tip: This can also be used as a white pasta sauce as well!)
  4. This will only work with Processed Cheese. For this recipe, I have used Britannia Cheese cubes.
  5. Stop mixing when it reaches a paste like consistency.
  6. Spread Cheese Sauce on the nachos.
  7. Spread sautéed Vegetables on the nachos.

And now, it’s ready to serve!
