When it comes to versatile finger food, you cannot go wrong with nachos. There is no right and wrong when it comes to homemade nacho recipes, after all. Personally, I love how much room there is for customization in each and every batch. It is basically a foodie’s dream come true.
From the chips to the toppings, anything can go. And do not even get me started on the cheese, sauce, and everything in between. Sure, you can always go for the standard chips and salsa. Or maybe you are more of a chips and cheese type of person. But why stop there? Adding extra fixings will treat your taste buds to the best combination of flavors.
With the right mix of ingredients, you can even make hybrid nacho recipes: I'm talking about nachos infused with Mediterranean and Asian influence, just to name a few. And while there is nothing wrong with basic nacho recipes, it's fun to switch things up every now and then.
As always, it's possible to turn nachos into a delicious vegetarian recipe. Just ditch the meat and you're good to go. And if you're vegan? Don't feel left out. Vegan cheese recipes are here to save the day, because everyone deserves the beauty of nachos.
There's nothing like a basic dish of nachos. And thanks to Damn Delicious, you can make this go-to crowd pleaser recipe. Bonus: It's vegetarian, too.
