Superbowl party recipes 2, Nachos with the works

I love Nachos. My kids and husband love nachos. Its the one of the best movie theater foods. I like the thinner corn nachos. Hot melty cheese is good, but I don't like it all the times. I rather eat it with salsa, sour cream or any dip. But jalapenos are a must.

Nachos have to go in combo with salsa or dips right?..I used to love eating nachos at "On the Borders' restuarant, but they closed down near us. I liked their salsa too. At home we usually eat the Tostitos salsa.

This recipe is an inspiration from the short trip we took with our friends last month to Mohegan Sun casino. After a day of driving and playing with the kids at the kid's arcade we were hungry, so we ate at the food court. They had this and we all shared 2 plates of it minus the cheese tho.
So I tried to duplicate it home and was successful. It is simple and has lots to veggies and taste yummy, crunchy and spicy.


1 cup shredded lettuce (I used iceberg)
4 spring onions or green onions
1 cup chopped black olives
1 cup corn
1/4 piece red onion chopped small
2 large tomatoes chopped small
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves or cilantro leaves
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup jalapenos
1/2 cup shredded cheese
a dash of black pepper

2 cups of my Guacamole dip
1 small jar of sour cream
A big bag of nachos (corn tortilla chips)

Method and Assembly:

What I did before taking them over to my friends house was mixing the chopped spring onions with the shredded lettuce, mixing the tomatoes with chopped cilantro leaves and 1 tbsp of lemon juice and mixing the corn with chopped red onion and 1 tbsp lemon juice and a dash of black pepper.
At my friend's place we mixed everything up in a bowl including the shredded cheese and jalapenos and put the sour cream and the guacamole dip to the side so that everyone can dip the nachos in and enjoy.

Tip: Alternatively you can leave everything in a separate bowls and people can take what they like onto their nachos.
