Delfino Nachos and 1-Up Dip – Nintendo Party

Home » COOK » Recipes » Party Food & Drink Recipes » Delfino Nachos and 1-Up Dip – Nintendo Party

Another dish that I made for my son’s Nintendo themed birthday party was nachos and guacamole…but not just any old nachos and guacamole…Delfino Nachos and 1-Up Dip!

I’m afraid the photo of my nachos is a crop of a bigger picture, but you get the idea ^_^ The amount I did was enough for 10 people.

Delfino Nachos


  • 1 big bag of tortilla chips
  • 1 jar of salsa
  • 2 big handfuls of grated cheese
  • Jalapeños chilli peppers (optional)


  1. Put the tortilla chips into a large, shallow, heatproof bowl.
  2. Spoon over the salsa.
  3. Cover everything with grated cheese (I used Cheddar)
  4. Sprinkle over the jalapeños if you are using them.
  5. Place under a hot grill until the cheese starts to melt, bubble and brown off.
  6. Serve with sour cream and guacamole…or 1-Up Dip!

Now onto the 1-Up Dip which I thought was a fun name for the guacamole…because 1-Up Mushrooms are green…and so is this dip…and not because it has mushrooms in it!

1-Up Dip


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • salt and white pepper


  1. Cut the avocados in half, lengthways around the stone and remove.
  2. Scoop the flesh from the avocado and place into a bowl. Mash the avocado flesh with a fork
  3. Stir in the red chilli and spring onions.
  4. Pour in the lime juice (to taste, you may find you need more)
  5. Season with salt and white pepper (again, to taste)
