Sometimes nothing beats classic nachos with lots of cheese, spicyclassic nachos peppers and lots of tasty toppings such as homemade guacamole, salsa and sour cream. This kind of food is perfect to serve with buffalo chicken wings, twice-baked potatoes and a nice crisp beer during a game or a movie.

Nachos happen to be really simple to make. You need some good quality chips, about 2 cups of cheddar cheese and habero peppers as well as tasty toppings.

Ingredients:cheese nachos

10 ounces tortilla chips
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 habero peppers
2 fresh scallions
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
1 cup salsa
1 cup guacamole
1/2 cup sour cream


Slice the peppers quite thinly. Don’t remove the seeds. Using a pyrex, or other large baking pan, evenly distribute the tortilla chips on the bottom of the pan. Spread about half of the shredded cheese on top of the chips and half of the sliced peppers. Top with an other layer of chips, then the rest of the cheese and peppers.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 8 – 10 minutes, or until the cheese have melted and is nice and bubbly. Once out of the oven, sprinkle fresh, sliced scallions and chopped cilantro. Serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
