Game Day Nachos

Super Bowl Nachos

Nachos a meal that you can share with family and friends while watching some of the best sporting events that bring out a large gathering, whether its at a local bar, a family or friends house, who doesn't get excited when a massive plate of good old fashion nachos drenched in cheese and meat makes it's appearance. Nachos are a great appetizer or even for some a main entree and with the Super Bowl on deck, this will get that party started right for those hosting events. I chose to substitute ground beef with a healthier choice of lean ground turkey, loaded two kinds of cheese but hey for cheese lovers out there, you can go with three or four kinds. Use a pizza pan or large oven proof platter. The important thing is that you can make this nacho recipe all about you with the ingredients you want to use. Lets just remember load the nachos up, no one likes nachos with barely any toppings, we want that stuffed drenched. This will not be a meal those watching calories will enjoy but its ok to indulge every now and then.
