Delicious appetizers, but you need to eat them quickly as they get soggy pretty fast.

Delicious. I substituted 1/2 cup sour cream + 1/4 cup cream cheese for the mayo and sprinkled paprika on them when they came out of oven.

These nachos are always a hit! I love that they are individual bites. Well worth the little bit of extra time.

I have been making these for sometime now. They are my favorite of all appetizers. I also use Tostitos. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! It is now Aug.2016, 4 yrs after my first review. I have to tell you all this is still my all time favorite recipe. It's quick, it's good and people love it. It feeds a lot of guests. Make it, you won't regret it.

I make them with the Tostito scoops, never thought of trying Frito scoops. Regardless, they are a major hit everytime!!!!!! Great appetizer!!!

I have made this for several parties and my all my friends LOVE it! Several have even requested I bring it the next time too. The picture suggests they used Frito Scoops but I have always used the Tostito Scoops. I will note that these do not reheat well, however we rarely have leftovers!
