For easy snacks, nothing beats a plate of microwaved nachos! These are no frills, easy to make, and delicious. Plus, these are ready in literally 2 minutes. Enjoy the easy tex-mex snacks!


1 plate tortilla chips
1/3-1/2 cup grated Monterey jack cheese
1/3-1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 avocado, chopped
Pickled Jalapeno
Fresh Cilantro


  1. Spread out tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 30 seconds. This will warm the chips and slightly toast them.
  2. Remove chips and add cheese. Spread the cheese out evenly on chips, don’t just pile it up in the center. Microwave in 20-second increments on high until cheese is melted, but not burned.
  3. Remove from microwave and add small drizzles of salsa, avocado, and pickled jalapeno. Return to microwave and microwave for 15 seconds. This warms everything through.
  4. Remove from microwave and add sour cream and fresh cilantro.
  5. Enjoy immediately!
