“Nachos cooked on tostados with beans, chili and cheese. Great for the game with cold beer. This is really good with leftover fajita meat, shredded chicken, cripy bacon, bbq brisket, pulled pork or taco meat. Another twist is subsitute chopped chipotles in adobo sauce instead of sliced jalepenos. You can always cut the tostados after pulling from oven and let guest apply thier own toppings.”
24 nachos
