 Todays recipe is Mexican  Nachos with cheese dip, nachos are one of the favorite snack to almost everyone now a day's.  We can have it as snack or appetizer and also perfect party time snack. I just love to have it with lots of cheese dip. Please d't think much about calories while having these nacho's with cheese dip 😄, try it once surely you will feel the same 😍.Yes yes we have to do more workouts to burn calories after having it, but trust me surely you will love to have these nachos with cheese dip & no need to tell about kids.

Some information about Nachos

Nachos are popular Mexican food, "Nacho" Anaya created nachos at the Victory Club in 1940. When a regular customer Mamie Finan asked Anaya to bring a different snack  than a usual for her and 3 other women. Anaya went to kitchen and spotted some freshly fried pieces of  corn tortillas, cut it into triangles and fried them. He added shredded  cheddar cheese and sliced pickled jalapeno strips, pepper and served them. After tasting the snack when Finan asked what it was called,  Anaya told, "Well we can just call them Nacho's Special". Which later became popular as Nacho's. Gathered information from here.   We can prepare many recipes using nachos, one of my favorite recipe is chilli cheese nachos with refried beans and salsa, will share that recipe soon.

Author : Aruna SarasChandra


To prepare Nachos:

oregano - 1 tsp
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
salt - as per taste

To prepare cheese sauce / Cheese dip 

Butter - 2 tsp
wheat flour - 2 tsp
milk - 300 ml
processed cheese cubes - 2 (you can also use cheddar cheese too)
red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp(optional)
salt - as per taste


1) Heat wide pan, dry fry coriander seeds and cumin seeds on low flames till you get nice aroma, then switch off flames.

2) Switch off the flames add salt, red chilli powder, oregano. Grind it to fine powder, if you feel it very coarse strain it.

3) Lets prepare flour, take maize flour, wheat flour, pepper powder , salt in a wide pan. Heat oil to deep fry in a pan.

4) Prepare smooth and stiff dough by water little by little, prepare small dough balls by pinching some dough.

5) Dust some wheat flour on dough and roll slightly thick and give it round shape. Prick it with fork in order to prevent it puffing while frying and cut into triangle pieces as shown.

6) Checking oil heat by drooping some dough, if it comes up  easily then drop above triangle shaped chips and fry it on low to medium flames till it becomes crisp and changes golden brown color. 

7) Repeat the same process for remaining, then sprinkle prepared cujin spice powder on it and shake well. That's it our Nachos are ready, you can serve as it is or can serve it with salsa or cheese sauce/dip.

8) Let's prepare cheese sauce/ cheese dip for Nachos. Heat wide pan, add 2 tsp of butter and let it melt.

9) Add 2 tsp of wheat flour to the above fry till you get nice aroma.

10) Now add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder mix well. (If you are using cheddar cheese you will get yellow color to sauce, as I am using processed cheese I used turmeric powder, you can skip it). Later add milk mix everything well and boil till  it becomes thick.

 11) Now add processed or cheddar cheese as per availability mix well, till it dissolves in milk. 

12) Cook the above till it becomes thick like sauce. 

That's it our Cheese dip is ready to serve with our Nachos.


* Roll nachos carefully as dough is sensitive, it breaks easily. 

* You can skip adding turmeric powder in cheese sauce/ dip. 

* Use cheddar or processed cheese as per availability or you can use both.

* Fry nachos in low to medium flames without burning.

* We can add garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, pepper powder and other ingredients to prepare cajun spice powder. You can skip sprinkling cajun spice powder too.
