Why are corn chips triangle? Because Nachos originated as cut-up pieces of tortillas.

Late Night Nachos Recipe Tips
Nachos Recipe is a kind of snack/food that we can usually do a little bit of experiment on how we put together the ingredients for the toppings to make it more exciting to eat. There are different kind of nachos topping that we can usually be made such as;
- Cilantro Pesto – the best nachos are the ones that are garnished with fresh cilantro, but sometimes that just isn’t enough (surely any true cilantro lover will agree). That’s why cilantro pesto just makes sense.
- Pico De Gallo – this so easy to make (and tastes so much better)? All you need are tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and jalapeno.
- Giardiniera – These pickled veggies is a mix of cauliflower, red peppers, carrots, celery, and pepperoncini.
- Eggplant Caponata – You won’t often find eggplant served on top of tortilla chips, but they make a hearty, vegetarian topping. And if you’re looking for a little complexity of flavor, opt for caponata; it’s sweet and vinegary and tastes amazing with melted mozzarella.
