There’s a diploma from Cornell University hanging up in Nachojawn HQ, and Mr. and Mrs. Nachojawn headed up the other weekend for Cornell Reunion. We had booked a place describing itself as a “Rustic Bohemian Treehouse” located on Lake Cayuga for us and two other couples.
And after a leisurely afternoon on the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, we fired up the toaster oven to make some nachos from Wegman’s purchased ingredients. Here’s the result:
Blue corn chips, Tostitos salsa, colby jack cheese, sour cream, black beans and fresh avocado on top. I kept my nose out of the ingredient purchasing, but it is a decent lineup, save for the salsa. If you’re foregoing the meat, you gotta get a little more interesting with your flavor profile.
The toaster oven did a good job heating up the nachos, the avocado was perfectly ripe, and I don’t think there was a leftover chip on the two trays.

Very fair review. Of course, any food scientist worth her salt will tell you that context significantly influences nacho taste perception. http://www.mnn.com/food/healthy-eating/stories/the-science-of-taste-why-everything-from-sound-to-shapes-can-affect-your
Doctor – thank you for taking the review in the spirit in which it was written. I would have been interested in seeing how the Hillcrest broiler nachos would have fared.
Hillcrest broiler nachos are like sandlot baseball. Overrated.
