So the story behind these nachos, is that I always keep jarred sun dried red peppers, capers, and pine nuts in my pantry, because I like to use them in recipes like this…

Quinoa Lentil Salad

Sausage and Pepper Pasta

Grilled Cheese Chop Salad

DeLallo Products

Yet every time I make a recipe with these ingredients, I add little half-empty jars to the already overflowing condiment shelves in my fridge.

So this recipe was created as a way to clean out the fridge, and became an instant favorite in my house!

The sweet red peppers add lovely contrast to the briney capers and the buttery pine nuts. All the toppings are sprinkled over tortilla chips covered in creamy muenster cheese.

I simply place a tray of these fancy nachos under the broiler for a couple minutes to melt the cheese, or pop a plate of them in the microwave.

Either way, you have a lovely decadent snack or lunch in less than 5 minutes. And because the toppings aren’t normally found on nachos, they come as a happy surprise to all who partake.
