“We went to Vegas on our vacation and I had these nachos. Ok--I swooned, was in dreamland. I did come to long enough to ask if I could speak to the chef. He didn't give me exact amounts, but more or less let me know. We were served this with chives and black olives. (They are to die for.) The one thing he said to me was about mixing the cheese with the beans. To me this was foreign, but he knew what he was doing.”
