When I think snacks, I think nachos. And when I think nachos I think about all the horrible nachos I've eaten over the years. You always get what ends up being a platter of chips with a smattering of toppings centered on top that disappears way too quickly. It's a ploy to get you to eat a bunch of nasty chips. Stuff it. I don't want your stinkin' chips. I want some real nachos!
So what are real nachos? A full distribution of toppings per each nacho. Fully-dressed individual nachos that are layered with each flavor so that you don't miss out on anything. It's nachos as meal really — there's so much stuff on each one that you could probably be satisfied by dinner eating just six of them.
Want to use canned refried beans? Go ahead, just don't skimp on five-minute stuff, man: simple salsa, chips, and guac. Then layer the chips, bean, steak, Cheddar, salsa, guacamole, crema, tomato, onion, spring onion, jalapeño, and cilantro. Heck, you could even argue that these are healthy. Think about it. Nachos that are baked, not fried; raw vegetables... it's almost a diet. Layer it high and proud.

Diced up and piled with cheese over crispy tortillas, and it becomes part of some of the best nachos you’ve ever had.
