You'll love our highfalutin' nacho iteration laden with sweet lobster meat, avocado, a rich yet amazingly low-fat cheese sauce, and a heap of crunchy, piquant tomato-radish salad on top that takes this dish to a completely new level. Between the crunch and saltiness of the chips and the richness of the seafood and cheese sauce, these nachos are just right for a glass of bubbly. This recipe is geared for a main-dish serving; for party snacks, it'll serve 12 or more.
