Tater Tots x Nachos = Totchos

J. Kenji López-Alt 24 comments

There are some mashups so gut-wrenchingly glorious, so decadently delicious, so damn greasy, that they deserve to be tasted, tested, improved, written about, modified, expanded, contracted, broken down, reassembled, broken down again, and possibly reassembled (after lunch) until they've finally emerged in their ultimate form. Totchos are one of them. More

Jerk Chicken Nachos from 'Ultimate Nachos'

Kate Williams Post a comment

Of the many unique recipes in Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson's new cookbook, Ultimate Nachos, the sweet-and-spicy jerk chicken nachos stood out as a must-try. As any spice-fiend knows, jerk marinade is a potent blend of scotch bonnet peppers, allspice, scallions, lime, thyme, and a plethora of other spices. The meat, most often chicken, is grilled to add a serious layer of smoke to the flavor profile. Adding cheese and salsa to build nachos is therefore a balancing act, and Frank and Anderson do it with ease. More

Tostadas de Jaiba en Salpicon from 'Ultimate Nachos'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

The appetizer nachos in Ultimate Nachos run the gamut from simple melted cheese on chips to insane platters of Reuben sandwich-esque bites and croque monsieur stacks. These crab-topped nachos offer an app that is somewhere in the middle. Neither pedestrian nor gut-bombing, this elegant dish is mostly light and refreshing, with plenty of sweet, briny shellfish to satisfy. More

Hangover Helper: Spoonbread-Stuffed Chile Relleno and Brisket Nachos at Trigger in Portland, OR

Drinks Adam Lindsley 2 comments

For a slow day at the office made even slower as a result of hitting the sauce a little fervently the night before (hey, no one's judging anyone here), a hearty bite of Tex-Mex is just what the doctor ordered. And it's what you'll order, too, if you find yourself in a similar predicament and manage to make your way to the doors of Trigger, the newest place in Portland to procure that soul-pleasing marriage of Texas and Mexican comfort food.

Bar Snacks: Beef Barbacoa Nachos with Pickled Red Onions

Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

These beef barbacoa nachos take their cue from Northern Mexican flavors. The brisket, which marinates in a heady, piquant blend of tomato and vinegar-based spices, slow-cooks in a Dutch oven until fall-apart tender. More

Nachos with Cabbage, Beans, and Cilantro Sauce

Serious Eats Carolyn Cope 10 comments

When I make nachos, I play to win. I like powerful flavors, multiple sauces, lots of creaminess and plenty of crunch. I like to balance all of those elements carefully in every bite. These nachos have got all that and more, because when my mind turns to the Super Bowl, it's football be damned. Every ounce of attention gets heaped onto a platter of tortilla chips. More

Five Nacho Variations

Lee Frank 19 comments

As editor of the site Nachos NY, it's obvious that I love nachos. But people always ask me, can one nacho really be that different from the next? Enough to inspire a whole blog? Oh, they absolutely can. Here are five variations on the nacho in honor of National Nacho Day (technically last Saturday, but it's never too late to celebrate) with cheesesteak, carne asada, buffalo chicken, pulled pork, and a dessert spin with Rice Krispies treats and brownies.

Dinner Tonight: Chilaquiles Rojos

Now I understand. When Anthony Bourdain trash-talked nachos on his excursion to a Mexican border town, I felt a little violated. Though my favorite cuisine is Mexican and I eat it almost every day, for some reason I couldn't shake... More

Super Bowl Snacks: Loaded Baked Potato Potato Chip Nachos

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 17 comments

This year, I wanted to outdo myself. And I think I did. I combined two of my favorite all-American junk food concoctions: nachos, and the loaded baked potato. Why should chips and cheese be relegated exclusively to flavors of the Southwest? More

Nacho Cheese Fountain

Robyn Lee 11 comments

Never before had I seen anything so marvelous that involve melted cheese product until the the nacho cheese fountain graced my monitor. DJ Grocery, creator of the mind-blowing General Tso's Philly cheesesteak, couldn't resist the temptation to fill his wife's chocolate fountain machine with cheese. I hear ya, man...I hear ya. It turns out cheese fountains are acceptable alternatives to chocolate fountains, along with barbecue sauce fountains and egg nog fountains. However, I'd rather believe that the ideas behind these non-chocolate fountains come about because while staring quizzically at the ornamental food display contraption someone thinks, "Well, I'm gonna fill this with [insert questionable liquifiable food product], and no one's going to stop me."...
