Response to El Mimbreno (Original post)

3. I'm a sorta purist when it comes to nachos

I stick to the classic c. 1940s style: individual tortilla chips topped with a small slice of meltable cheese and a pickled jalapeno, popped under the broiler, to be eaten individually. (OK, occasionally I'll just grate a bunch of Monterey Jack over a pile of tortilla chips and sprinkle jalapenos over that)

IMHO, the current trend for putting everything in the kitchen on top of tortilla chips and calling it nachos is overkill., and more I think is less. It's getting close to chilaquiles - and ancient dish - or migas, but Ignacio Anaya would be turning over in his grave to see what passes for nachos these days.
