i basically use the same stuff, but i layer the bottom of a baking pan with taco chips, then ground meat mixture then i add salsa, then i top with shredded cheese, then place in an oven untill cheese is melted. and everyone loves it. i'm always asked to make this at our campground for late nite snacks.

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

I was looking for a Nacho recipe and stumbled upon this one..I usually only try recipes with a rating,however, this looked good and easy/quick,so I gave it a try. Was definately a 5 star! I put out a side of salsa and sour cream to eat with eat -- delicious!

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!

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.

We love this meal! It's kid friendly and it's easy to divide into sections. Some of us like beans, some like tomatoes, etc. Everyone gets what they like. I have three kids under 5, it's nice to have at least one meal or snack that pleases them all. For me, I toss my nachos into a salad and make a taco salad. It's also a great movie dinner for our family dinner and a movie night.
