img_5533img_5520For as long as I can remember, nachos have been one of my all time favorites. From a midnight snack to baseball games, gotta have me some nachos with cheese. Is it okay to make nachos for dinner? You betcha! You got your dairy, your protein and your veggies. Isn’t it great being mom?…All powerful, and saying it’s okay to have nachos for dinner. The fondue pot keeps the cheese warm. All the toppings are a la carte so everyone is able to make their own cheesy creation just the way they prefer. The conversation flows and the dinner disappears. SUPER NACHOS are a family favorite for sure!
