With bite-sized cheddar inside a deep fried tortilla, never get caught with a less than perfectly cheesy nacho again.

Inside Out Nachos


  • 1 bag of corn tortilla chips

  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, cubed

  • 1 cup flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 1/4 red onion, diced

  • Sour Cream and Salsa


  1. Using a food processor, blend up chips into a crumb. Place them into a shallow bowl or plate. In a second shallow bowl whisk together the eggs and milk and in a third add the flour.

  2. Roll each cheese cube in the flour, tapping off excess flour, then dip in egg mixture, then roll in chip crumbs and place on a plate. Repeat with remaining cheese cubes until all are coated.

  3. In a large skillet or saucepan, heat 2 inches of oil to 375°F. Set a large plate topped with a few paper towels off to the side. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, lower a few cheese cubes at a time into the oil, making sure they stay separated while frying. Remove from oil using spoon after 1 minute or when the cubes are a golden brown and place on paper towels to drain. Repeat until all cheese cubes are fried.

  4. Place on a plate and top with your favourite nacho toppings and serve immediately.

- I don't know what to think of the recipe. I've never made it before. I had an idea. I may have been under the influence, but I was like damn, I'm craving nachos, but like if the cheese could be inside the nacho, and that's how we landed where we are today, and I'm convinced that I can make it work. I've not done it before, so if it fails, it's not my fault. I've laid out everything I think I will need. I've got some oil heating on my stove. I want it to about 350 'cause that's what I fry most things at. I'm just going by the seed of my pants. I don't even know what the seed of your pants is. Where is that? Is it seat with a T? It's not S-E-E-D? My whole life! I've been saying by the seed of my pants as if it's growing. I think this is more important than the recipe, personally. Seat of my pants. Well, everyday you learn something new. So, here's what we have going on. Down here, I've already prepared my toppings 'cause I know once I get these things fried, I'm only going to have a certain amount of time while the cheese is still melty, so I went and did my toppings. I diced up some tomatoes, I did some red onion and green onion, then I've got some sour cream and some salsa. They're just at the ready. So, for the inside out nachos, I'm going to make a tortilla crust, so with these corn tortillas, I want to get them into a small food processor, and I'm going to make like a crumb from them I think. Hey, that looks good. I don't know, cool. Pour these onto a plate. Then over here, I have three eggs. I want to add my milk to it and just give those a whisk. Now I think we're ready to dunk our cheese nuggets. First thing I want to do is I'm gonna take one nugget, this is just, I used sharp cheddar 'cause I thought more flavor more better. It's going to go in the flour first, then I'm gonna move it over to this egg mixture, and then in our chip mixture. I'm going to do the rest of these, and then I'm going to fry them, and then we're just going to have to see. Wish me luck. Okay, I got one with everything on it. I think they worked. I'm a pretty happy camper. Mmm, victory is mine! You know when you just do something, and holy shit. What happened? More salsa please. I knew it was going to be good, but mmmmm. Thank you so much for watching. You have to try this recipe. You're going to absolutely love it, and I will see you guys next time. Thank you for watching.
