At this birthday bash for little kids, the food is a huge hit.

Makes: 8 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 15 mins

Ingredients
  • 8 10 inches flour tortillas
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 pound deli-sliced American cheese
Directions
  1. Position 2 racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees . Trim each tortilla into an extra-large triangle by cutting a strip off two sides and leaving the bottom rounded. Brush the tortillas lightly on both sides with oil and arrange in a single layer on 2 large baking sheets. Bake until golden-brown and crisp, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook until lightly golden, 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the cheese, a few slices at a time, until melted. Serve the jumbo chips with the cheese sauce for dipping.
Tip For a change
  • Dress up the nachos for grown-ups with jalapenos, salsa and guacamole.
