I got this recipe from summer camp, and when I made them at home, my whole family was impressed. Layers of tortilla chips and salsa with the works on the side - tastes just like the nachos they serve at restaurants. Perfect for a party!

  • Mix together the onion, tomatoes, parsley, olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper in a bowl.

  • Spread tortilla chips in a single layer onto a baking sheet, and spoon about 1 teaspoon of the tomato salsa onto each chip. Spread 1 cup of Cheddar cheese over the nachos, top the chips with another teaspoon or so of salsa, and top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.

  • Bake the nachos in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Serve hot with sour cream, guacamole, and any remaining salsa on the side for dipping the chips.

Simple and fun to make. We added some chopped up green peppers and omitted the extra guacomole and sour cream. I made this with a group of kids and they ate it all up! Read More

I have tried this twice now and both times the chips came out of over SOGGY. They don't stay crisp with the topping on. I will go back to just baking with cheese on top and adding topping later like I used to do. Read More

These were really good. However I found the suggestion of the one reviewer to add green onions on top after they were done to be needed. I used baked tortilla chips and reduced fat cheese and it worked fine. I had all of the ingredients for the pico de gallo except lime but subbed lemon juice. To save time I just followed the layering technique and microwaved them for 2 minutes. 1/2 recipe fit on a large dinner plate and served 2 well. TY Read More

I left out the olive oil since I used prepared salsa which made chips soggy so I will only be using salsa for dipping or topping after baking chips! I modified this by adding orange bell pepper and using a shredded mexican cheese blend green onions and only a few tablespoons of parsley. Thanks for a simple yet great tasting meatless nacho recipe!

Excellent! The lime juice makes the difference! Because of the use of lime I substituted Cilantro for Parsley and Canola oil for Olive oil (too heavy). I also added sliced olives. Tested this at dinner party last night - it was a big hit with diners! Read More

Simple and tasty. I didn't do the teaspoonfuls of salsa thingy... Just sort of layered the ingredients. Meant to add green onions but forgot. Think that will be a good addition. Read More
