Man, do I love nachos.

It goes back to when I was a kid, and my dad would come home from a co-ed softball game in North Hampton, shower, then sit down and eat three plates of nachos before two bowls of ice cream. “That’s a man,” I remember thinking.

That’s where I got my at-home recipe: a spread of Cool Ranch Doritos, Mexican shredded cheese from Hannaford in the middle, more Doritos above that, another round of Mexican shredded, and some sour cream to top it off.

I’m proud to say my daughter inherited our nacho fandom, as they are now a go-to whenever we visit the Beach Plum at North Hampton Beach. They’re the main course of the “Sadie/Daddy”, which is also comprised of sweet menu items that, I kid you not, will clear your sinuses and cure your ills (I'm not a doctor, but I am a Beach Plum expert).
