Nachos made with tortilla chips with salsa is among my favourite snacks. Fully-loaded nachos with cheese is another one I love having. Have you tried making your own nachos at home? It is an easy nachos recipe with tortilla chips that even beginner cooks can make easily. It is guilt free if you make it in the airfryer like me or bake it. Imagine how happy you will make your family and friends. And even if you deep fry it, I prefer it to the extra-salty, super expensive nachos that we buy from supermarket.
So here’s how to make homemade tortilla chips for nachos:
