Last year we already came up with the winner of the best tortilla chips and that winner went to Don Pancho Resteraunt Style Tortilla Chips. They are crisp, salty and hold sauce or salsa perfectly. We bought 4 bags of these chips and it was scary how fast we consumed them. They are totally great!
So, onto our Queso dips. We found several different varieties at the local Costco and Winco and here is what we came up with. The FIRST place winner went to Tostitos Queso Dip. It was nearly a tie with Mission (to me they tasted the same). The worst queso dip was the powdered sauce mix from Winco’s bulk section. Oh, that was bad!! My personal favorite was the fire roasted cheese dip from Costco. It had a totally different flavor (obviously) since it was made from real ingredients and not processed cheese, but the men weren’t big fans. It was a little chick-food tasting for them. Another surprising favorite if you want a traditional ball-park nacho cheese dip, was Farrero from a can. It really had pretty good flavor and although it was a tad boring with no peppers or anything, it actually made some pretty great nachos.
So, that is it for another year. If you are wanting to make the ‘perfect’ nachos in our book…stock up on some Tostitos Queso and some Don Pancho Tortilla Chips and the men in your life (and maybe even you) are sure to be in heaven!!
