Sweet Salsa Nachos
Sweet Salsa Nachos (created by Michele Anderson and Kari Schoenfish)
I have a niece, Michele, who is attending Wayne State in Nebraska who likes to cook. So when she was here visiting recently she said “Auntie Robin, I have a good recipe for nachos that my friend and I make at school”.
So I bite. “Okay Michele, what’s in it?” Michele answers “It’s made with corn chips, cheese sauce, and fruit salsa and it’s real yummy.”
“Okay” I respond. “Write down the recipe and I will give it a try”.
Since this is such a simple recipe that only takes a minute to put together, I decide to whip it up and see what these college kids came up with.
Is it healthy? Not on your life. Delicious? You bet. Keep these three ingredients on hand and you can satisfy your munchies on a moments notice.
Here’s the recipe for Sweet Salsa Nachos:
- 1 bag of Frito-Lay corn chips
- 1 jar of Tostitos Salsa Con Queso Medium Cheese sauce
- 1 jar of Trader Joe’s Spicy, Smokey Peach Salsa or your favorite brand
Start with a microwavable dish. Spread corn chips all over so they over-lap some. Take a spoon and drizzle the cheese sauce as evenly as you can all over the corn chips.
Now do the same thing with the peach salsa. Try and get that sweet smokey salsa all over those chips. Place the dish in the microwave on medium for about 30 seconds, just to heat things up a bit.
Take it out and enjoy. Be careful as these nachos can get quite hot. I found it easier, believe it or not, to use a spoon to eat it.
This is one of those dishes where it’s hard to stop eating it, it’s so good. Michele was right.
It is yummy.
