Nachos is nothing but small and mega crunchy pieces of tortilla, baked with all kinds of spices and additions. Nachos come from Mexican cuisine and are most often served in the company of all kinds of salsas, both spicy and mild (e.g. cheese, pepper, tomato and guacamole salsa). How to make nachos?
Nachos are an integral part of Mexican cuisine. It is a snack that is often served hot with cheese or fondue cheese. Crisps also taste great with guacamole, dippami (e.g. garlic) or Mexican salsa. Some people love to eat nachos with ketchup. Some of us serve this type of beer crunch. Recently, the Mexican delicacy began to compete with popcorn, because it tastes great while watching a movie.
Homemade nachos are not only tastier, but also much healthier and cheaper than store counterparts. It is worth noting that at home you can prepare chips of any taste. Your own nachos may be more salty or spicy. It all depends on your imagination and taste.
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1 cup corn flour
- 0.5 cups of hot, boiled water
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 0.5 teaspoon coriander
- 0.5 teaspoons Roman cumin
- 0.5 teaspoon sweet pepper
Sift wheat flour into a bowl, add corn flour (sometimes I replace with oat flour), spices and olive oil, gently stir. Pour hot water into the flour, mix vigorously (but carefully!), Preferably with a wooden spoon. Due to the different absorbency of flour, the amount of water given in the recipe may vary slightly. If necessary, more water can be added to the dough.
Knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it is firm and elastic (you can try to knead the dough by hand, but by adding hot water, be careful about its temperature). I use a robot to make nachos
When the dough is well done, set it aside for about 10-15 minutes to cool and rest. After this time, divide the dough into 6 parts. Roll out each part of the dough thinly – the dough should almost shine through.
Cut out the desired size triangles from the dough – you can cut them into strips and cut out triangles from them. However, I cut out the circles from the rolled out dough and divide each of them into eights.
Transfer the triangles to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake each batch of nachos in an oven preheated to 180 degrees, for about 10-15 minutes to browning.
You can add other favorite spices to your homemade nachos. If you like spicy nachos, we can tempt you to add e.g. cayenne pepper or hot pepper.
Nachosy before baking can be sprinkled with a small amount of salt.
