Not Your Regular Nachos: Quadruple Cheese Nachos

This week I was really excited about experimenting with a fancy, new nacho recipe. However, when I looked in my fridge and realized that while I didn't have any feta or goat cheese — two components to my upcoming idea, I had 10 other types of cheese! Thus I decided to make these clean-out-the-cheese-drawer nachos instead. The funny thing is when I was eating them, I wished they were cheesier! This recipe is super simple and best served with a spicy salsa. To see how I made it,

1 flour tortilla, sliced into 8-12 small triangles
salt, for sprinkling
chili powder, for sprinkling
2 heaping tablespoons pepper-jack cheese
2 heaping tablespoons mozzarella cheese
2 heaping tablespoons cotija cheese
2 heaping tablespoons smoked gouda cheese
1 teaspoon cilantro, finely chopped, optional for garnish

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the tortilla slices on a baking sheet lined with foil. Season with salt and chili powder. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes flip tortilla slices than bake for another 5 minutes.
  2. In an individual sized oven-proof dish layer the chips and the cheese being careful to cover each chip with cheese.
  3. Bake for another 6-8 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  4. Turn the oven to broil and broil, watching closely for 2-3 minutes until the chips are crisp and the cheese is bubbling and brown.
  5. Serve immediately garnished with cilantro if desired with spicy salsa on the side.

Cheeses are like blades on razors. Remember when that third blade came out, people were all up in arms. Four blades? People said it couldn't be done, AND WE DID IT!!! Now there's a five-bladed razor out there. I kind of feel the same way about cheeses. Two cheeses? Screw that, we've got four! There's going to be this massive arms-race of cheese: "forget four cheese, this is a nine cheese blend! Mwa-ha-ha-ha!" For a Not-Quite-SFW (read: profane) take on the razor issue, click here:

Love the way you did the tortilla. Basically just about a free dinner the way you used leftovers.
