"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Shred about a quarter of the block of cheese with a hand grater. On a microwave safe plate, arrange the corn chips. They should cover the plate, but not overlap too much. Spoon on the salsa, a dab per chip. Add any various other toppings here, being sure to get a little on each chip. Sprinkle cheese on top, generously, making sure to cover all the chips with a pretty even layer. Microwave about 1 minute, turning halfway through if your microwave doesnít have a turntable. Let cool for about 1 minute. Munch.

Personal Notes:
For the Nacho-aficionado, these are not technically Nachos since theyíre made in the microwave. This recipe is designed for: children who canít/shouldnít use the oven, college students, and lazy people like me who only want to wash one dish. Itís also designed to overcome the dreaded Restaurant Nacho Syndrome, which occurs when half of the chips on the nacho plate donít have toppings. This was (and still is) one of my favorite snacks.
