Reviews for Veggie Nachos
"These are wonderful. A very nice change from your typical nacho. Nothing about this recipe title is deceiving, it is Veggie Nachos, not vegetarian Nachos.That being said, my oldest daughter who is a vegetarian loves it, I make two batches when I throw it together, one as stated and the other without meat and the addition of chopped red bell peppers and other favorite veggies.I highly recommend this recipe, I make it for my family at least once a month.Where I live, the cheese soup can sometimes be hard to find, however I just buy the can of cheese stuff that I think Hormel makes, it is with their other chili type products at my local store."
"It sounds good and I would make it, but the title is deceiving because I am a vegetarian and there is meat in this recipe."
