  1. Everyone loved it and was impressed😊 so thank you! I’ve been craving nachos and this definitely helped my craving and exactly what I wanted

  2. Just a thought…I would also add whole kidney beans and roasted kernel corn for a dinner recipe.
    But the original recipe is great “finger food ” for “appetizer menu.
