Very good recipe. The whole family loved it. The only thing I find wrong with it is the name, it does not seem like nachos at all. But it is very good.

To cut back on the sodium, I omitted the salt and used my own taco seasoning mix which is sodium-free. You could also use the unsalted variety of tortilla chips to cut back even more. Husband approved, we will having this again for sure.
