Homemade Nachos

For the first week of my recipe challenge (cooking one new recipe each week) I decided to make this recipe in a new cookbook I received for Christmas: Cooking Light: Way too Cook Vegetarian.

These pinto bean nachos give instructions on how to make your own tortilla chips, which I thought was cool.

Ever since I was younger and ate super nachos in high school at the good ol' Center cafeteria, I LOVE the toppings for nachos. The more the better. Even if the chips get drowned out and soggy, I don't care.

For these nachos we had: salsa, nacho cheese, cilantro, pinto beans, tomatoes, sour cream, jalapenos, and onion.

PS: I'm pretty sure the photos of MY nachos look better than the one in the cookbook. ;) Nom nom nom.


  1. YUM - I totally agree with the toppings. What kind of camera do you have? You take awesome pictures of food!

  2. I have an Olympus Stylus 1010. When I take photos of food I make sure I have a lot of light, use no flash, and for close ups use the macro setting. I really should start using Paul's DSLR with the macro lens as that is supposed to be the best way to take food photos!
