Cuisinart Original

The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it as extravagant or as simple as you want – add some guacamole or salsa, gourmet cheeses or keep it as is for a casual appetizer. Either way,h it is sure to keep the family satisfied.

Ingredients

50 tortilla chips (this is an estimate; you need enough to cover the           bottom of the baking tray, but can have more or less depending on       how many mouths you need to feed)

1   jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced


2   green onions, thinly sliced


2   scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)


½  cup sliced black olives (these can be purchased pre-sliced in a can.       Be sure to drain them first)


1   cup shredded Cheddar (about 3 to 4 ounces)
