    I will be making Nacho’s for Super Bowl Sunday and my team the Seattle Seahawks are in the Super Bowl again! I am thrilled about it! I love this Variety of Nacho’s and will add some of the ingredients to kick up my Nachos. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

    Yum, I love dip. How much tomato & how much cheese (of which type) do you use for the dip? I’ve made dip with canned chili & Velveeta, but haven’t done it with tomatoes.

  3. Oh my Nachos! Great for the SUPER BOWL snack too! 🙂
