Ingredients

1 ½ Cups Chihuahua Cheese, Grated

1 Corn on the Cob, Kernels Removed

½ Cup Fresh Cilantro, Roughly Chopped

1 Jalapeno, Small Dice

6 Cups Tortilla Chips

1 Avocado

1 Lime

½ Cup Queso Blanco

1 Tablespoon Hot Sauce, Optional

1/3 Cup Sour Cream, Optional

Preparation

1. Grate the Chihuahua cheese to measure the indicated amount.

2. Cut one end off the corncob. Stand cob upright, then run knife down the sides to remove kernels.

3. Trim cilantro leaves from the stems and roughly chop to measure the indicated amount.

4. Cut the stem end off the jalapeño, then cut in half lengthwise. For less heat, remove the seeds and ribbing. Cut into a small dice to measure the indicated amount. Avoid touching your face when handling peppers, and wash hands immediately after.

Directions

1. Preheat the broiler on high.

2. Prepare a sheet pan with a layer of aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Lay tortilla chips in a single layer on the sheet pan, overlapping them slightly to prevent any gaps in between.

3. Scatter the grated Chihuahua cheese over the chips, then evenly sprinkle the diced jalapeño and corn kernels over the top.

4. Place the sheet pan under the preheated broiler and cook until cheese is melted and bubbly and edges of chips are starting to turn golden brown, about 4-6 minutes.

5. After you remove the nachos from the broiler, transfer them to a large serving platter or break into individual portions and place on dinner plates.

6. Slice the avocado in half lengthwise and twist both halves to separate. Stab the pit with the knife blade and twist to release. Use the knife tip to score the avocado crosswise in both directions, then use a spoon to scoop the flesh out and scatter over the nachos.

7. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top along with the juice of a freshly squeezed lime and crumbled queso blanco. Serve hot sauce and/or sour cream on the side if desired. Nachos are ready to eat!
