American Mexican Nachos Grande

If my kids have a request for Sunday dinner I know that it is going to be Nachos.

They love them and the hotter the better. My stomach does not allow me to be a spicy person so I put the toppings on that I want and put the others as a side.

I never have leftovers and it is so easy to fix. It is a complete meal when I make it...and the only other thing I serve with it is dessert.

You can use ground turkey and the topping can be such a wide variety.

Enjoy.
