Publishers Text

It’s like a dream come true! Not just permission to eat a plate of nachos for dinner, but dozens and dozens of recipes and ideas to turn this beloved snack into a legitimate and culinarily exciting meal. Plus dessert.

Written by the irrepressible Dan Whalen, Nachos for Dinner combines the mad genius spirit of his previous books, ‘Smores and Tots!, with the practical brilliance of Sheet Pan Suppers. First Whalen breaks down the nacho’s intrinsic appeal to its three essential components—a crispy base, a melty sauce, and a flavorful topper—and three flavor profiles—a lot of umami, a little heat, and something sour or pickled. From there the world is your nacho plate.

Of course there’s the Mexican-inspired classic, and a few variations—like a Street Corn Nacho and Fish Taco Nacho. But also seasonal nachos, like Fall’s riff on Thanksgiving, with chips, turkey, cheese/gravy sauce, mashed potatoes, corn. International nachos, like a Thai Larb nacho with chips, red curry sauce, chili-lime ground chicken mixture, cucumber mint salsa. Nachos that don’t use chips—like his Lasagna Nachos, with mozzarella, ricotta, sausage, and tomato sauce over fried lasagna noodles. Even Churrachos and Nutella Nachos for dessert.
