Velveeta just didn't taste right or have the texture I expect in nachos. Definitely needs "real" grated cheese to be 5 stars. Read More

These were delicious minus the "fake" cheese. I used shredded cheddar and baked this in the oven to ensure the crispiness of the chips. Great appetizer for a large group too. Thanks! Read More

This is just not my favorite way to have nachos. I made this recipe because of the other ingredients but processed cheese is not the way to go if you want real nachos. I came from California and out there cheese is grated not squeezed from a package. I wanted to try this combo because I like the ingredients but should have known the processed cheese wouldn t make this all that good. Read More

These were very yummy!! one thing I would say is that the re-freid beans made them a little mushy even though I put them in the oven instead of the microwave. Also instead of processed cheese (ick) I used shreeded monterey Jack and chedder cheese mix and then melted it in the broiler. Next time I make these I will add lettuce and some sour cream:) Read More
