Scary Hairy Eyeball Nachos
Oil for frying
6 small corn tortillas
6 slices cheddar cheese
4-6 slices Jack or provolone cheese
6 pitted green olives
Red food coloring
Salsa, if desired
Heat oil in large skillet. Fry small tortillas in oil until crisp, drain on paper towels.
Line the tortillas up on a bake sheet. Turn the oven on “broil”. With a jar lid or rim of a drinking glass just a little smaller in diameter than the tortilla, cut 6 rounds of white cheese from the slices. Use a smaller rim, cookie cutter to cut the smaller rounds of cheese from the cheddar slices. (I used the top of a spice jar to cut these.)
Put a round of white cheese on each tortilla. Top each with the round of Cheddar. Slice up the pitted green olives to make the center of the eyeballs. If desired, you can use a toothpick to “paint” on the bloodshot eyes.
Put the nachos under the broiler until the cheese is just melted. Serve with salsa, if desired.
Makes 6 appetizers.
