Can you have amazingly yummy nachos during an emergency? You bet! And I’m going to show you how!
The first recipe shows you how you can simply make your own wonton skins. This is a heck of lot easier than attempting to make corn or flour tortillas from scratch and requires less physical energy and ingredients.
- 2 c. of all purpose flour
- ½ t. of salt
- ½ c. warm water
- Cornstarch as needed
In a mixing bowl stir together the flour and salt then slowly stir in the warm water. Turn the dough into a lightly dusted floured surface. Knead for 10 to 15 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes.
Divide dough into fourths. Roll each fourth into a 12 inch square. This should provide you with a thin square layer. With a sharp knife cut the dough into 3 inch squares. Sprinkle cornstarch on them and stack and store in a zip loc bag. This should make 64 won tons.
Now it’s time for the AMAZING NACHOS
Start with 1 recipe of wonton skins, with the skins cut in half to form triangle shapes
Oil for deep frying (I prefer Coconut Oil, myself)
Put 2 inches of oil in large deep skillet and heat to 300 degrees. Add wonton skin strips in batches, separating them as they’re added and begin to fry until crispy (should be barely light brown). Remove batches from oil and drain on paper towel. When finished with all skins, set aside to cool.
Now combine 1 10 oz jar of Alfredo sauce with whatever 2 cups of shredded white cheese you have on hand. I recommend Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack. * If mixture is too thick to pour, then add a little milk.
Drain a can of diced Mexican flavored tomatoes. Chop a can of drained black olives. Open a small can of drained chicken.
Drain a small can of jalapenos. (I prefer mild, but I have sissy tastebuds)
In a warm Dutch oven, spread the cheese mixture generously over the fried wonton skins. Then top with the tomatoes, chicken, black olives, and jalapenos. Heat at approximately 350 degrees for 4 to 7 minutes.
Enjoy a taste you simply won’t believe!
If you’re wanting to make these in an everyday situation, add some chopped green onions too!
*Remember, you can treat your large blocks of cheese with cheese wax and they will keep good for as much as 20 years! So there’s no need to suffer through life without cheese, even when the stores are closed down!

I agree that life without cheese is suffering! :)
I would love to learn more about treating my cheese with wax - did I miss that post? or is there one coming? I don't know the first thing about it.
It's coming, Jamie. Be patient. :-)
Here is the post all about cheese wax - enjoy! http://tinyurl.com/cb3d6y
yum. those look great!
Great tortilla chips.
Get a bag of corn tortillas or make your own.
Cut the tortillas into 1/4's
Soak them in lime juice, I use a gallon ziplock bag and just enough lime juice to cover, remove extra air.Let the tortillas soak over night.
Fry in 375 degree oil, small batches so the oil doesn't lose it's heat. The chips float to the top when cooked.
Now I love salty chips, but I found these chips don't need salt.
I am going to try these chips with your nacho toppings.
sounds yummy!!! Thanks Jamie.
