corn nacho ingredients

I used multigrain and white corn tortilla chips

cut corn from the cob

I used fresh, roasted corn on the cob, but grilled corn would even be better  😋

cheese nachos

Lay out the chips in an even layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle liberally with cheese

I took a short cut and used bagged shredded cheese, but freshly grated is always better if you have time

corn nachos

Toss corn with lime juice and chili powder and place on top of cheese covered chips

I used a prepared refrigerated queso from the grocery store, but homemade would be even more divine
