Then, when I order skillet nachos, just sprinkle a scoop of each topping on top of a heaping pile of chips, leaving me to figure out how to evenly distribute the toppings amongst the chips. And then, when I ask for more toppings on the side, charge me $1 for a shot glass full of each topping. Grrr…

So, what makes my skillet nachos different than that of any restaurant I’ve ever visited? The fact that there’s cheese in every single bite. I accomplish this by creating layers upon layers of chips and cheese. Seems simple and obvious, but I’ve never been to a restaurant nor have I seen a recipe that does this.

And then, on go the toppings – pico de gallo, jalapenos, lime, and any other toppings you’d like (sour cream, olives, guacamole).

    I don’t understand why more restaurants haven’t figured out this method! I love a good plate of nachos, but all too often I’m disappointed when more than 75% of the chips are totally plain. These are making my mouth water!

      I agree! It probably cuts into their profits :) I share the same feelings, which is why I won’t be ordering anymore nachos from restaurants ;)
