So this picture is worth a thousand words... it basically describes itself. These mouthgasmic nachos are simple, delicious, and hubby-approved (then again, what wouldn't he approve?!). These were a perfect snack for this past weekend when all we did was drink... drank... drunk...
1/2 lb. bacon
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup beer (I used Corona)
1 tbsp. honey dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions
-Preheat oven to 400. While preparing the cheese sauce, spread one large cookie sheet with tortillas chips and heat in the oven for about 5 minutes.
-Chop the bacon slices into small pieces. Cook the bacon in a skillet until crispy, then remove and set aside on a paper towel. Leave grease in the pan.
-Melt butter in the skillet with the bacon grease in it. Add the flour and cook, stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the cream, beer, mustard, and seasonings. Mix well; simmer for about 5 minutes.
-Stir in the cheddar cheese until melted.
-Spread the cheese sauce evenly over the tortilla chips. Top with the cooked bacon and the chopped green onions.
**This makes a good amount of cheese, it's also excellent for a dip, just top with bacon bits or more cooked bacon and serve with chips or pretzels!
