Personal Review: I love nachos in almost any shape and form. Love them. So I was excited when I first came across this recipe in a Yahoo recipe group I belong to. Not going to lie, I was a little nervous about the ground turkey. However, I definitely recommend sticking with that (ground beef could easily be used in its place though).

Another thing … I totally cheated and used packaged tortilla chips. Why? Well, let’s just say that it involved a lot of smoke in my house (should have taken a picture of the burned beyond recognition tortilla chips I “made” … would have been a “nailed it” picture!)

Either way, this recipe was really good. So, so easy! And the best thing … it was toddler approved in my house!
