One of our favorite “casual” dinners has got to be “Have it your way Nacho Buffet”. Hubby usually piles his plate a mile high with meat. Kiddo goes for plenty of Jalapeno Peppers. I love the gooey stuff – lots of sour cream, bubbly cheese and guacamole. This is great for family game night, watching the “big game” or vegging in front of the TV for a movie marathon night . . . you get the idea. I will admit, when we are having company over, I put each “ingredient” for the Nacho Buffet into its own pretty little bowl or warming dish and set an inviting table. However; on nights when it’s just us, the table is very casual. Hey, those skillets keep it all warm, and there are less dishes to wash. Any way you serve it up, these Super Nachos are great.
