Everyone loves Nachos and Cheese! So why not try cheese stuffed nachos this time? It is a quick and easy to make party appetizer and also the perfect anytime snack! These are essentially fried cheese triangles coated in nacho crumbs but taste delicious along with their light crispness! Serve it along with your favorite dip for that extra flavor!

Ingredients ;
Nacho crumbs  ( your favorite flavors ) – 3 cups
Pizza Cheese ( Mozarella + Cheddar ) – 500 gms
3 eggs
All purpose flour – 2 cups
Garlic powder ( 2 tsp )
Italian seasoning ( 1 tsp )
Pepper powder ( 1 tsp )
Paprika ( 1 tsp )
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste

Directions:

To a food processor, add the nachos, garlic powder, italian seasoning, paprika and pepper and pulse until it resembles bread crumbs. I used 3 flavors of nachos and divided the spices accordingly. Here is what I used.

 Slice the cheese into 1/2 inch squares and then cut them into 2 triangles. Further cut these 2 triangles into 2 more triangles each so that you get 4 triangles from one square at the end and set all these pieces aside.
Now get your counter ready.
Into a bowl, add some the salt, some all purpose flour, a lil bit of pepper powder and mix well.
Into another bowl, beat the eggs, add some paprika and salt to it, beat again and set aside.
This is what your coating station should be like

Take each triangle of cheese and coat it in flour first. Then dip it into the eggs and then thoroughly coat with the nacho crumbs. Again dip it into the eggs and again roll it into nacho crumbs and set it aside. This double coating adds extra flavor and more crunch. Once all your cheese triangles are ready, put them into the refrigerator  for about an hour or two.

 Heat oil for deep frying. Fry each batch of these cheese stuffed nachos for about 1-2 minutes or until the outside is crisp and golden brown.

Remove the triangles from the oil onto paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.
You can make batches ahead of time and freeze them and then fry just before serving.
