We know you take pride in anything you make, which is great news for your taste buds! Most craftsmen have a huge advantage in making a more delicious plate of nachos, because even the best cook probably doesn’t have your building skills. Here’s how to use that advantage to construct the most epic nachos ever:
Gather Your Materials
Your nacho structure will be made of the food that you use to build it, so we suggest you consider using the highest quality materials possible. Here’s some things to consider while picking your ingredients:
Corn chips: Your chips are like your bricks. If they’re not strong enough, they might get too mushy too quickly, and too soft to hold all the goodies piled on top. We recommend you have thick sturdy chips to work with.
Cheese: Your cheese is like the cement that holds everything else together. If you get anything less than real cheese, it’ll probably won’t hold as well. Use the good stuff that’ll stick; it tastes better too.
Toppings: The tomatoes, onions, peppers, cabbage, beans, meat, and anything else will all add texture and tang to your final reveal. You’ll want to add toppings layer by layer, between laying your corn chip bricks and cheese, so every single bite has flavor to savor.
Pick Your Design
However, before you decide on the ingredients you want to use, you want to consider the aestetics and
Color: The biggest thing that will influence the appearance of your nacho is color. For example, if you use white cheese with white corn chips, it will set a nice base for bright red tomatoes and green onions.
Shape: The pile of the chips, cheese, and toppings will all determine the shape. Some people love a big tower of goodies, while others say spread out the pile across a sheet to make it less soggy and more tasty.
Final touch: Like paint, the sour cream, guacamole, and cilantro should be the last topping, usually applied after the nachos have been cooked in the oven.
Once it’s built, it’s time to knock it down. Unlike most of your building projects, this structure isn’t meant to last – the quicker they get devoured, the better job you did with the construction!
