Dinner Nachos

“A gaggle of teens come over at the last minute? People show up to watch the game or you get home late and are starving? Dinner Nachos has been my answer. Super fast, feeds a lot, gets rid of leftovers and uses food usually on hand. They're great even when meatless. You'll probably think of other/more toppings. This dish almost never makes it to plates in my house as the family usually eats directly from the pan, all standing laughing around the island in my kitchen.” - Wolfebets

Such good fresh taste with the lemon and orange juice. Hubby said it is a keeper. Don't worry about it being too acidic because it is mild but great tasting.” - IMJUSTCOOKIN

“I have been making this for our family ever since coming across this recipe on Just A Pinch a few months ago. It is fabulous! My family loves it. I use more mozzarella and for the parmesan, grate up a package of shredded parmesan.

The printer worked fine for me, and only used my iPad. You need to click on the picture to get the recipe, then click on the printer icon.
