About Nacho Chips

Nacho chips are a favorite snack of many young people. They are aromatic and crispy deep-fried triangles. They make an awesome dish when served with a salsa or a dip.

Plain Nachos:

Making nachos is very easy. You have to form a soft and firm dough with maize flour, plain flour, wheat flour, carom seeds, oil, and salt. Divide the dough into lemon-sized balls. Roll each ball into a thin pancake. Chop the pancake into triangle shapes. Deep-fry these shapes on medium-low heat. These nachos are salty and not spicy. Plain nachos go well with a spicy dip or salsa.

Spicy Nachos:

If you want to eat nachos without a dip or salsa, make them spicy. While making the dough, add red chili powder, pepper powder, and some more salt along with the other ingredients. The remaining procedure of making the chips are same as that of plain nachos.
