“My kids don't love salsa or "chunky" tomatoes, so I came up with this super simple version of nachos that kids adore. In my house, they're the #1 requested after-school and movie snack! The measurements are purely an estimate, so add based on your tastes. And for adults or kids who don't mind them, by all means add green onions, black beans and/or chopped tomatoes!”
