Wicked Good Nachos, Handy Man Style

Handy Man and I have tried making nachos over the years, and I think he has perfected the recipe by now.

Notice that we put them onto a (VERY seasoned) Pampered Chef baking stone. I'm not sure if the stone does anything that fabulous or different for the nachos, but we've been making them this way for years.

Here are the ingredients that we use:

Green pepper; onion, tomato, jalepeno peppers (yowza!), black olives (sometimes), and lotsa, lotsa cheese. Handy Man will use whatever kind of cheese we have around. We like to use a Mexican blend, but almost any kind of shredded cheese will do.

Chop all ingredients. Put a single layer (this is key!) of nacho chips on the pizza stone. Then, add some of your veggie toppings, and some of the cheese. Put a second layer of nacho chips on top; then top with more veggies and more cheese. We bake it in a 350 degree oven for about 10-12ish minutes, until the cheese just starts to turn brown and bubble a bit.

Making the double layer of chips/veggies/cheese helps to get more veggie and cheese taste into the nachos. YUM.

If you are in the mood for some Wicked Good Nachos, try making them Handy Man Style next time. And, try them on a baking stone, if you have one. Do you notice a difference? Come back and let me know if you do...

Nachos, Handy Man Style

Chop green peppers, onions, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and black olives. Preheat oven to 350. Place a single layer of nacho chips on the pizza stone. Top with veggie & cheese layer. 

Put down a second layer of chips, veggies and cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese starts to bubble and turn a bit brown. 

We serve it with salsa and sour cream. Wicked good for a pah-ty!

Those look so good. I have never done more than cheese on chips in the microwave. I will have to try this.

Liz, you SHOULD try them, they are awesome this way! Tastes like nachos you'd get in a restaurant. Even better than some restaurants!
