Remarks

If you'd prefer more solid nachos – easier if you want to scoop up stiffer dips – use half-and-half wheat and maize flour.
Why not try different spice combinations to vary the colour and flavour of your nachos?
If you'd like "slim" nachos, mark out rectangles 2.5 x 1.5 inches (6 x 4 cm), instead of 2.5 inch squares.
