Do you have a blow torch handy?

If not, read on ahead to find out how we teach kids to make Nachos Especiales in our after-school Cooking class with no oven in site.

Tip 1:  Instead Of Melting Shredded Cheese In An Oven, Make A Nacho-like Besciamella Sauce

(Aside:  First off, I know what you’re thinking…nachos aren’t healthy!  No, it’s got a good amount of fat from the cheese, milk and oil used to make the tortilla chips.

That being said, this is our first lesson of our Mexican & South American themed session.  We start with the nachos to get the kids excited about cooking and then follow it with Santa Fe Salad with Black Beans, Corn and Cilantro-Lime Dressing and soon a Peruvian Quinoa Soup.  When you work with kids we find it best to follow the one-for-you and one-for-me model when it comes to healthy and less healthy dishes.)

When you’re making a lasagna, you make a creamy sauce called a “besciamella” which is made of melting 2 Tbs of butter.  You add 2 Tbs of flour and slowly add 1 cup of milk over medium heat until it thickens to become a delicious, Alfredo-like sauce.  We then add some chili powder and shredded cheddar cheese to give it that distinct Nacho flavour And At last Three Tips For How to Make Nachos At Home without oven.

The result is a gooey, delicious cheese sauce, similar to what you might order at a baseball game BUT it’s made from REAL ingredients.  There are no artificial chemicals like “Yellow 5” which is not good for your body for a number of reasons.

Instead, we’re using butter, flour, cheddar cheese, chili powder and that’s it!

Tip 2:  Make Your Chips From Scratch, With A Lot Less Oil Using The “Par-Fry” Method 

Problem 1 with store-bought chips:  They’re too salty.

Store bought chips tend to be loaded with excess salt.  You can compare them to a more mildly salted chip you’d get at a restaurant, which pairs much better with perfectly seasoned salsa and sauces.

Problem 2 with store-bought chips:  There are too many chips in a bag.

Have you ever tried to buy a small bag of tortilla chips?  They don’t exist!

When I’m craving nachos, I just want one portion to enjoy with friends and family.  However, if it’s just 2 or 3 people, you end up having a lot of leftover chips.  This is great if you have a lot of will power as they sit in your cupboard,

It’s as if the chips are constantly calling my name form 6:00am-12:00pm.  It’s hard to resist the call!

Instead, you can use leftover corn tortillas to make just enough chips for a meal.  Here’s the game plan For  Three Tips For How to Make Nachos At Home without oven.

Slice the tortillas into triangles.  Over a large pan add 1/4 cup of oil, over medium heat.  You can then “par-fry” the chips in batches, which is using oil to not fully submerge the chip.  This saves you cooking oil and makes them slightly more healthy than their deep-fried brethren.

Remove the chips to a paper towel-lined plate, season with a pinch of salt and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Tip 3: Don’t Buy Salty Refried Beans, Make Your Own In A Snap

Canned refried beans have a lot of extra salt.  Instead, you can make a simple and flavorful bean paste to go over your nachos.

Take a can of black beans, rinse and drain them.  In a pan, add olive oil and cook 1 chopped onion and a bit of garlic for a few minutes.  Add the black beans, chili powder, cumin, salt and heat for 2-3 minutes. Three Tips For How to Make Nachos At Home without oven.

  Take the back of a fork to mash the beans until they form a paste-like consistency.

To assemble nachos:  On a plate layer your homemade chips, add the bean paste, the cheese sauce and every other fixing you prefer
