The nacho has universal appeal. It’s a finger food, it crunches, it’s Tex-Mex, it’s tasty. It’s quick and easy, yet it’s still satisfying. Anyone can make a good nacho. It’s casual enough to eat on the couch in front of the game, but it can be gussied up for any occasion: like hamburgers, pizza, and other wildly popular casual foods, nacho variations are vast, and techniques are important. That’s where Macho Nachos comes in handy, beginning with the fundamentals—what cooking vessel to use, what temperature, which cheeses and chips work best (and which really don’t), how to make cleanup easier, and how to avoid bad results (soggy on the one hand, burnt on the other). Then on to recipes: Speedy Nachos (the easiest recipes) such as Traditional Tex-Mex “Nacho’s Nachos”; Smoked Chicken, Roasted Peppers, and Asiago Cheese Nachos; and Nachos de Carnitas. Then there are Uptown Nachos, for those social situations when it might actually be necessary to tuck the shirt into the pants and perhaps entertain the fairer sex: Jamaican Rum Chicken Nachos; Popcorn Shrimp Baja Nachos; and Crabmeat and Spinach Nachos. There are even Breakfast and Dessert Nachos.And of course Macho Nachos is a rich source of homemade condiments—the pièce de resistance (if you will) of the well-appointed nacho—for those chefs too advanced to settle for a jar: from classic Pico de Gallo to Ginger-Watermelon Salsa, from Avocado Crema to Chipotle Mayonnaise, here’s everything you’d want to drip, drizzle, or pour over your macho nachos. Don’t leave the couch without it.
  • I own thousands of cookbooks, and this is one of the better one topic books I have run across. All the recipes are easily prepared with easy to find ingredients, and of the 10-12 I have made so far, all have been very tasty. This book will get you out of the typical beef and bean type nachos and into a new world of taste. A lot of the combinations also make excellent pizzas.

  • Lots of Pictures...Recipes are GREAT...Something for EVERYONE...KOOL Cook Book

  • My family LOVES Tex-Mex food and this has been a terrific way to settle their cravings!
    Super easy recipes and AWESOME ideas for some very delicious Nachos! The Nachos de Carnitas
    and the Chinese Fire Cracker Nachos are hits with this family. Great pictures and recipes are clear and easy to read.

  • HOLY SMOKES! My boyfriend and I whipped up four of these delectable recipes last night for a party we were throwing. WOW. People were hovering around the oven, waiting to grab the first one we plated!! There was serious competition between which was best, and no one could decide on just one!! They all loved the S'Mores nachos, the Bombay Nachos with Curried Chickpeas and Tomato-Garlic Chutney, and the Hawaiian Pineapple and Canadian Bacon nachos. They were all so good!! I think that this book has been an Exceptional addition to my collection of cookbooks, and, oh my goodness!!, the section on toppers and additions and all that is soooo choice!! Boyfriend and I are so excited: we have excess from barbecue chicken and curried chickpeas for some Thrilling wraps later this week!!! The Bombays were sooooo good. Jeez, everything in this book was SO GOOD. And so fast and easy! The nachos took five minutes!!!!!!

  • I love the fresh take on nachos! Being a Texas boy who is used to chips, cheese and peppers, I was amazed at all the creative recipes for a standard appetizer in Texas. Who would have thought BLT nachos, shrimp baja nachos and one of my favorites, Chinese firecracker nachos! Delicious! Very creative, thanks Kate, keep up the good work and thanks for thinking outside the chip!

  • Holy crap! The nachos that came out of this book and into my mouth were top notch! It seriously only took 5 minutes to make, meaning i could get back to playing team fortress 2 in no time while making my roomies jealous that i had all the delicious treats to eat while whooping their butts. BUY THIS BOOK! SO WORTH IT!

  • I'm not a great cook but I thought I knew how to make nachos. Boy, was I wrong! The recipes in this book take nachos to levels I never dreamed of. Now I can make them not just as a snack but as a full meal. Even my girlfriend wonders where I suddenly learned how to cook.
    If you want to salivate, buy this book just for the photos.

  • Macho Nachos aren't just for guys, of course, but they make a hefty meal when you do it right. Kate Heyhoe's nacho cookbook is full of recipes even I can make and I sometimes have trouble boiling water. Great ideas, fun to read, highly recommended.
