How to Make Nachos

Nachos are a great snack for entertaining guests or satisfying munchies. Plus, you can adapt your nachos to whatever you've got in the fridge. Makes enough for one good-sized snack.

If you don't have a microwave, heat up your nachos in a 400-degree oven.

Add refried beans, ground beef or grilled chicken over the salsa for a heartier nacho.

For a low-fat version, use reduced-fat or fat-free cheese and sour cream.
