Skillet nachos. It’s Memorial Day Weekend! One of the biggest grilling weekends of the year! So why am I sharing some nachos? Well they are great for a party or if you want something super easy. And these skillet nachos can be finished in under 30 minutes.
I mean who doesn’t love nachos? It’s just one of those dishes that is comfort 101. What makes them even better is they are made in one dish so less cleanup! It’s called skillet nachos for a reason!
Ok a little off topic here. So if you’ve followed my blog, hopefully you’ve noticed the change in the pictures. While I’ve been doing this blog for over a year I have never been satisfied with my pictures. The lighting in my kitchen just isn’t great for pictures. So a couple of months ago I built a light that I can use to take pictures in my basement. While I’m by no means a photo expert, it definitely has helped with the pictures. It actually looks like an actual food blog now! Anyways these nachos couldn’t be easier or tastier! The only thing missing is some guacamole! So give them a try!
