Torch Delights

It’s football season again, and what better way to cheer on your favorite team, and enjoy the big game than to enjoy some hot and cheesy nachos.

This is an easy recipe that can be made in less than 10 minutes and is a surprisingly good source of calcium.

With the addition of ground beef or refried beans, you can make this dish into a quick lunch or dinner.

Go ahead-add some veggies, chili, or any kind of meat (shredded chicken, bacon, ground turkey, diced sausage, etc.) to really send this recipe over the top.

Adding meat, beans, and veggies to your nachos is a great way to get a day’s worth of protein and other essential vitamins and minerals.

Nachos are a Tex-Mex style item which originated in Mexico, first thought up by a man named Ignacio Anaya around 1943.
The nacho however did not gain popularity outside of Texas until the 1970s.

With this nachos recipe, you’ll never have a shortage of friends to watch the game with.

This snack can also be used at a number of events, including birthday parties, tailgating events, and even a midnight snack! It will be the hit dish of the night.

So kick back, grab some hot and delicious nachos and a cold soda, and enjoy the game like never before.
