Expert Tips

  • Like it hot? Top with Old El Paso™ sliced green jalapeños or a couple of dashes of your favourite hot sauce.
  • Replace the mozzarella with finely grated Cheddar cheese for a more intense cheese flavour.
  • Cooking Vegetarian? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Microwave timings can vary depending on wattage. Microwave on High for 1 minute 30 seconds first then in 30 seconds bursts until the nachos are piping hot. Allow to stand for 1-2 minutes before serving.
