License to Fill: Loaded Nachos Perfect for Big Appetites

nachosnachosMy family eats nachos as a late night snack after a bar-b-q, with the exception of my Grandfather. He wants his nachos the second all the ingredients are available. We have to remind him to be patient, the meat isn't ready yet, or I haven't grated the cheese. Something about this crunchy concoction makes him go bonkers. I love to overhear my Aunts say things like "Get Daddy's nachos," or " Serve Daddy his nachos." Like little girls making sure their father is happy. I'll be sure to serve my Grandfather his nachos this Father's Day, plain and simple… just the way he likes them. Enjoy!
