Recipe Tips

  • If you need to make the nachos in a real rush, you can use a microwave, but this will probably result in soggy corn chips and may not taste nearly as good.
  • If you don’t have any taco seasoning in the cupboard, then you can make some from scratch.
  • Homemade nachos are not only great tasting, but you have the freedom to change it to whatever you like best. Experiment and work out what combination of flavors work best for you.
