This week's nachos were inspired by a recipe I found in the current issue of Everyday With Rachael Ray. In the magazine, she uses peaches as a savory ingredient in a spicy-sweet salsa that tops a steak quesadilla. Instead of making the quesadilla, I made nachos.
The final result was crunchy, hot, and pure deliciousness. My peaches were really juicy, so I ended up straining the salsa before topping the nachos, to ensure that the chips didn't get soggy. I fried tortilla rounds, but this would be equally delicious on store-bought tortilla chips. To look at the recipe, read more.
