Summary of Ultimate Nachos: From Nachos and Guacamole to Salsas and Cocktails
Nachos are the ultimate comfort food and the extreme guilty pleasure. As the team behind Nachos NY, authors Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson have set off on a mission to reinvent the nacho and elevate it from its status as neon-yellow-cheese-smothered snack food to delectable gooey treats to dig into and share with friends.
As Nachos NY, Frank and Anderson have put their extensive nacho knowledge to work and show you how to play off the flexibility of the nacho with eighty-four creative recipes that are inspired by comfort foods and international flavors. From making homemade tortilla chips, to whipping up Avocado Horseradish Crema, and mixing up delicious margaritas, the recipes in this book provide you with everything you need to throw a Mexican fiesta with a twist! Recipes include:
- Fried Calamari Nachos
- Croque Monsieur Nachos
- Philly Cheesesteak
- Roasted Beet, Apple, and Goat Cheese

- and much more!

Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats, and Melissa Clark of The New York Times, this book will have you cooking sweet and savory recipes all year round at backyard bbqs, on Super Bowl Sunday, or for Tex-Mex night with the family.
And, of course, nachos aren't complete without salsa, guacamole, and queso.
