Matzah Nachos

I’ve mentioned before that nachos are one of my favorite foods. So good, right? Salty chips and gooey cheese and lots of guacamole. Naaaachos. Passover is on the horizon, and I’m not one of those anti-matzah people. I love the stuff! For real. Plus, it’s better to embrace it. Don’t fight the matzah! So I thought I would combine the two and make the best Passover snack of all time. Fact. Move over, matzah brei! All my gentile friends love matzah too, so I can’t wait until they get a load of these suckers. Matzah NachosFirst, I made pico de gallo. Combine tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
