Nachos

Nachos made with both corn and flour tortillas.

I made these this weekend for Cinco de Mayo. There is no real recipe for them but I can tell you what I do. I use a mixture of corn and flour tortillas with my nachos.

To make the flour tortillas cut the flour tortillas into 6 pieces. Cut the pieces like you are cutting a pie. Bring a pan with oil in it to 350 degrees. Add half of the chips and fry until brown. Drain on a paper towel when cooked and sprinkle with a little salt. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. There is something about the homemade chips that make this nacho so good. If you are making your own corn chips repeat the process. You can do this earlier in the day, in fact everything can be made ahead and all you have to do is assemble them right before you are ready to serve.

Below you can see how I layered the chips and taco meat.
