You can file this one under 'From The Kitchen Of Heather DeLuca'.  Sometimes after a long day the last thing I want to do is create an entire meal.  Especially during the summer when the heat makes me cringe at the idea of turning on the stove or oven.  So I'm constantly turning to satisfying snacks I can doctor up with 5 ingredients or less.  Time and again I go back to my Triscuit Nacho Platter.

Heather's Triscuit Nacho Platter

 

 

What you'll need:

--a plate (I like to use a square or rectangle platter to accommodate the cracker shape_

--Triscuit wheat crackers

--sour cream

--salsa

 

 

--shredded mozzarella cheese (or any flavor variety; I like Sargento Part Skim Off The Block Mozzarella because it melts best for this dish)

--a fork

--Press N' Seal or plastic wrap

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Arrange crackers close together on a plate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Sprinkle shredded cheese over crackers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Lay out a sheet of plastic wrap and use a fork to poke a small whole directly in the center.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Put a couple spoonfulls of sour cream directly over the hole in the plastic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5: Gently pull, gather and twist the edges of the plastic wrap to form a small pastry bag.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6: Use your plastic wrap sour cream bag to begin squeezing sour cream on top of the cheese and crackers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 7: Next, apply salsa; I like to use a fork for this so I get mostly salsa pulp instead of liquid which can make the crackers soggy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Microwave nachos for about 30-45 seconds; you could also pop the plate under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to get the cracker edges really crispy, just make sure you use an oven safe plate.

Voile! Lunch/Dinner is served!
