These are easy to make and much better than you get most places.


1. Cut the jalepeño chilies into small pieces.  Cut the cheese into chunks and place in a bowl with a few shakes of the green Tabasco.  Melt the cheese in a microwave.  You can, of course, do this in a pan on the stove.  When the cheese is bubbling, throw the jalepeño pieces in and give it a few stirs.

2. Put a layer of chips on a flame-proof plate.  Then cover with a layer of cheese, followed by a layer of chips, etc.  Do this for about 4 or 5 layers, finally topping with a thick layer of cheese.

3. Stick under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is bubbling.  Serve with a pitcher of margaritas and plenty of napkins.
