I would put them on a baking sheet lined with paper towels, salt them, then put more paper towels on top.

Like GG said, I put them on paper towels and sprinkle Kosher salt on them immediately after taking them out of the oil. I don't cover them with paper towels, though. If the frying oil is good and hot, the chips aren't oily. There's hardly even any oil residue left on the paper towels.

Now I want nachos!

Me too! We're all either very bad for each other, or very good for each other on DC!

Very good for each other, I'd say! I'm so inspired.
And with Larry's recent thread about Mexican rice and refried beans, I'll be having some of those as sides!

You just had to go there... Now I'm craving it all!

I can't wait until they perfect transporters so we can have a DC meetup.

I want transporters too. Can we also have replicators? We could post the code for our dishes and then other people could replicate them exactly.

Nachos: Where are the good recipes? Every time I make nachos in the oven, I'm underwhelmed. I typically dice some chicken, add some blackened seasoning, throw some shredded cheddar or co-jack on top of a pile of chips, broil, and eat with jalapenos. A pile of nachos seem to be harder and harder to find at a restaurant too. Anymore, an order of nachos is roughly a dozen chips covered in a pound of refried beans and cheese. Give me your best nacho recipe, and PILE THEM HIGH! :) 3 stars 1 reviews
