I love nachos, but I hate when they get soggy. It’s like all the delicious toppings become too much for the chip and it ends up just being kinda gross. I also never understood why people think that nachos make such great appetizers. Sure, the chips can all be separated, but what about the big glob of guacamole in the middle? And who gets the really awesome chip with extra cheese while everyone else has to eat chips at the bottom that don’t have anything on them?
I’ve solved two problems at once with these party nachos. I researched how to avoid soggy chips (for real my google history has “how to avoid soggy nachos” in it) and I’ve managed to evenly distribute all the awesome toppings. Are you ready for this insanity? I present…The Perfect Party Nachos.
Here are my tips for perfect party nachos:
- Try to find the bag with the least broken chips.
- Place rinsed black beans at the bottom of the chip so the cheese doesn’t touch the chip too much.
- Do a double layer of cheese. Everyone loves a lot of cheese and this prevents the salsa and guacamole from making the chip soggy
- Keep your oven hot so the cheese melts quickly and the chips stay crisp.
