Ah cheese, so good on its own (in fact I’m having slices of Swiss as I’m typing his), and so useful in many dishes. I was racking my brain for a bit thinking of what to do with the cheese so I wouldn’t repeat a dish I already posted about (like mac n cheese). Someone at work mention nachos and I immediately say, “Yes! That’s it!”
I decided make these extra cheesy nachos, so cheese on top, and cheese mixed around in the bottom chip layer.
Oh, and I couldn’t find any freshly shredded other cheese, so I just got some sliced cheddar and pepper jack and sliced them into small pieces (I also don’t have a shredder…I know, I know). Mixed it up with the shredded queso, and split it between the chip layer and the toppings layer.
Toppings can be just about anything you want. I decided to chop up some tomatoes, a fresh jalapeno, and an avocado. Cook up some ground beef and onions with taco seasoning, and then warm up some corn and black beans with a little bit cumin.
I added more cheese, I just almost forgot to snap a picture before the cheese covered everything.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes to melt all the cheese and enjoy. You can add some salsa, sour cream, and pickled jalapenos. I like to splash some hot sauce over it all too.
I wanted a cool picture with the cheese being stretched across, but everything was super hot and it was hard to hold it still and snap a picture with all the toppings on 1 chip.
