Matzah Nachos (aka Machos) will get you through Passover! No problem! The perfect cure for your Manischewitz hangovers.
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.
First, I made pico de gallo. Combine tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Then, brush your matzah pieces with melted butter, salt and pepper. Bake for about 10 minutes until browned.
CHange your oven setting to broil. Then add cheese, and bake another 5 minutes until cheese is all melty. Ooooh yeah.
Top with goodies of your choice! I used pico de gallo, avocado, Greek yogurt and lots of cilantro. Beans or salsa are great too! Use what you like.
Nosh away! What are your go-to Passover snacks?
