  • 1 bag of unsalted Mexi-Snax tortilla chips (43.6 mg)1
  • 8 ounces Ortega canned hot jalapeno peppers or fresh Anaheim chilis (160 mg)
  • 6 ounces shredded low sodium cheddar* or shredded or thinly sliced Lo-Sodium Swiss cheese (60 mg)

    On top of the chips grate light layer of cheese, then sprinkle Oretega jalapeno chilis over the cheese.

    Grate the balance of cheese over this -- spreading it evenly across all chips.
