Now that we’ve established why we think nachos are the highlight of any snack or meal, what are some of the best nacho recipes?
We searched the Web, drooled over recipe after recipe, and may have indulged in a few nachos ourselves. Here are the best, from the top five food websites (ours included — obviously): The Daily Meal, Food Network, Allrecipes, Food.com, and Chow.
