Late Night Microwave Nachos

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

Nachos as a midnight snack -- mmm -- nothin' better. And here's how to make those nachos super quick so you can get to munching.


Growing up in our household they were simply called chips and cheese. My mom would throw a big plate full of chips covered with shredded cheese, pop them into the microwave and it was a quick and easy snack for us kids.

So imagine my delight to learn when I got older that more could go on chips and cheese than just cheese. And they aren’t even really called chips and cheese -- my mom was actually making Microwave Nachos!

Now when I make them, I add other stuff -- like ground beef or chicken -- but mostly I just love beans. I mix either salsa or Pico de Gallo into the beans to give them a little kick. Since I’m a wimp for heat I stay with topping them with green chilies, but feel free to throw in jalapeños if you can handle that. Top with some sour cream and guacamole and you are golden.

To make the nachos:
