My Kids love pizza and they also love nachos so I decided to give them both in one dish. Actually, I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner in 15 min. and then I remembered I had some leftover marinara from the night before, a 1/2 bag of cheese and a bag a tortilla chips that my chipaholic son hadn’t found in the pantry..
Pizza Nachos = Double score for Mom!!!
Nachos is another one of those Taylor-make-able dishes.. I made these for the kids. However, My husband wanted a Mediterranean version with spinach, roasted peppers, sundried tomato, kalamata olives and feta cheese, so I custom made him a nacho dish. I’m glad I made an extra large potion, otherwise he wouldn’t have wanted to share. It was SERIOUSLY Good!!! Then my son suggested BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos.. um, YUM! Crispy tortilla chips with melted cheddar cheese, BBQ pulled pork, caramelized onion, maybe some bacon? drizzled with sweet & tangy BBQ sauce. That will be the next nacho dish in our house. So you see, you can make whatever kind of nachos you want. The chip is the vehicle for all your yummy toppings of choice.
Don’t use to much marinara sauce since it will make the chips soggy – You can always serve them with extra marinara sauce on the side.
Not that you will have any problems with leftovers (we had zero) but the nachos are best served straight out of the oven.. The longer they sit. The more “soggy” they will become. Oddly enough, I have a child that likes “soggy” cheesy chip nacho.
Remember you can Taylor-Make these pizza nachos.
Like pepperoni or olives? Add it
Use your imagination. I can guarantee you will love them.
By the way, the garlic cream sauce will keep in the fridge for a handful of days. Feel free to use the leftover sauce on a pasta or a dipping sauce for bread or pizza. OR if you are feeling extra lazy (or extra healthy) – just omit the cream sauce. They are still yummy!
These are great for parties, football games, family gatherings or just a quick weeknight meal.. Have fun with flavors and go Taylor-Make some – Not so normal Nachos
