When I was in my early twenties I worked as a server at an Italian restaurant. Oftentimes on Friday and Saturday nights we would head to another restaurant after our shifts ended and we would order food and drinks and talk about the night. One of my very favorite things to order when we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant was a cheesy plate of nachos. I was recently asked by Sargento® to create a Mexican style dish featuring the Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blend at my Kroger store. I immediately thought of a hot plate of cheesy nachos! I headed to our local Smith’s and quickly found Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blend. One package was perfect for the nachos. Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blends add a creamy, smooth flavor to any Mexican style dish. It has that off-the-block freshness that makes a really big difference in this recipe. It is the essence of the nachos and added the best flavor and ooey gooeyness! Along with fresh toppings, Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blends made this nachos absolutely delicious and restaurant quality. As soon as the pork roast was done cooking in the crock pot, we started on building the nachos. Find a plate/platter and place corn chips on it to cover. Then sprinkle Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blends all over the chips. Don’t be shy! Then top with shredded pork, tomatoes, black beans, and more cheese. It’s all about that cheese! Add another layer of cheese, pork, tomatoes, black beans, and more cheese. Then top with sliced jalapeno and place in the oven on broil. Top with sour cream and scarf! Just look at that cheese stretch. I mean, can you get any better? These nachos were heavenly! Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican blends is the perfect cheese for nachos.
