Potato Chip Nachos with Black Jalapenos
A slightly different take on nachos for people who prefer potato chips - one of the finest products ever invented.
1 medium onion, diced
8 black jalapeno peppers, cleaned and diced
1 medium tomato, diced
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup milk (I used skim) + up to 1/2 cup more for thinning the sauce
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
8 ounce bag of salted potato chips
Drizzle a little olive oil in a small skillet. Saute onion and peppers over a medium heat until soft and tender. Stir in tomatoes and warm through.
Meanwhile, make sauce: In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until it is incorporated. Slowly add milk, stirring and cook for a minute until it thickens. Add more milk as necessary to thin sauce so it doesn't break the potato chips.
Spread chips on a large platter. Pour cheese sauce over and sprinkle on Jalapeno mixture. Eat immediately. Serves 4 - 6.
