MY REVIEW

If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would! It is one of the BEST appetizers I've ever made. We are having friends over for the Superbowl tonight and I've already had to send my husband out for more groceries to make a second batch because after I did a trial of 12 nachos to see if I needed to make any adjustments earlier today, both my husband and son begged me to cook more and that's what they ate for lunch! I will definitely be making these again and again and again! No modifications needed...these are perfect as written!

My kids love this recipe. It is quick and easy and we almost always have the ingredients on hand. We usually add refried beans to the beef mix. It extends the recipe and we love the taste
