Michigan Nacho

joeyjoan K


When I first had this dish it was simply called Nacho's. The only place I was ever able to get this dish was mexican resturants in michigan.
So when I developed this recipe I named it Michigan nacho's after the dish that inspired me to make it.
The dish was served pizza style and was so good, I just couldn't live with out it, So I turned it into a cassarole,using all the ingredients I knew for sure, some I had to guess at,the end result was just what I was looking for, when I take my first bite I am back home in michigan in that busy resturant having one of my most favorite dinners Michigan Nacho's is a family favorite and gets requested very often.
