Yesterday marked the start of football season and today’s recipe comes to you straight from Auburn.
I was going to share this recipe with you yesterday, but when I saw that today’s Sunday Supper theme was “No Labor” recipes I knew it fit in perfectly. Because what could involve less labor than two ingredients and a microwave?! I’m not even making any dishes either! Thank you to the Sunday Supper Movement for hosting today’s event.
There is a restaurant called Momma Goldberg’s Deli right next to campus that has been open since 1976. What makes this deli unique is that their sandwiches are steamed! (Never in my wildest dreams would I attempt to recreate one of their deli sandwiches at home.) In 2007 Momma G’s became a franchise and has now expanded to 26 additional locations across 4 states.
If you find yourself at a Momma G’s establishment, you must get an order of Momma’s Nachos. (And don’t forget to order a beverage for your souvenir cup – we have quite the collection from their various locations.) Or, you could make them at home like I did. Only problem is that I don’t have their fancy steamers and used the microwave. While still deliciously simple and the perfect tailgating food, the cheese didn’t melt into the chips the same way Momma’s does.
Copy Cat: Momma’s Nachos
- nacho cheese Doritos chips
- slices of pepper jack cheese
- jalapenos (optional)
- Place chips on a paper plate. Place slices of cheese over top. Add jalapenos if using.
- Microwave 5-10 seconds – keep on eye on it, as cheese melts quickly!

These are exactly the kind of nachos I enjoyed in college! I’d still eat a big plate of these cheesy gems today!!!
They’re quite hard to resist.
Absolutely can’t get much easier than that! These sound delicious.
No you can’t!
No labor nachos – heck yes!
Oh man . . . you had me at Doritos!!
It’d been quite some time since I had them. Still tasty.
I haven’t had nachos in forever!
I have nachos of some sort quite often. 🙂
Awesome for watching the game and not messing up any dishes too.
No dishes = a win!
I used to make stuff like this after school but with plain tortilla chips (not a fan of Doritos). Oh the memories!!
I’ve done that too but with shredded cheese.
We love nachos for something quick! My husband piles them high with jalapenos but he is crazy like that. I get one little slice of pepper and I am all set for a whole plate! Haha! The microwave makes these so quick and easy don’t they? Yum!
Haha! Yea, I like about one to two jalapeños for the whole plate as well.
This is sooooo up our alley here! We’ve been making them with cheddar, but knock me over — I don’t know why I never used Jack! duh???!!! I’ll bet these are yummy!
Great idea for a student snack!
That looks like the perfect snack and quite addictive!
Indeed. And making it at home means I can have as much as I want – at least until the bag of Doritos is gone.
Never did visit the FWB location- and to be honest have never tried their nachos. Now I wish I had.
We went opening week in FWB. 🙂
