Debra’s Loaded Nachos

By Angelika Hanna

This recipe is inspired by my Facebook friend Debra from Colorado. In the past, I always liked Nachos at restaurants but never tried to cook them at home. Then, I saw Debra’s post on Facebook, and it looked and sounded so deliciously and easy to make. Debra inspired me for homemade Nachos and every time I make them, they turn out fantastic. I have made them over and over again. Thanks, Debra, for this awesome recipe!
