Topper Nachos

Everyone has a favorite meal they make about once a week. For some, its meatloaf, chicken, or even a casserole. For us, its nachos. Tortilla chips are our processed snack purchase every week, and nachos are just one of the many ways we devour them. Below is a recipe for my topper nachos, so nicknamed because they are topped with a lot and half the option for more!

We decided to make quite a night out of it. Fixed little plates with nachos and our toppings, and watched Community on DVD. Best way to deal with a long work week.
