    Shelby Jo's Note:

    This is a recipe my hubby came up with when it was his turn to cook breakfast after losing in our weekly football pick'em. It's something I never would have thought of but is so yummy! A nice different way to do breakfast.

      What a nice recipe ! ! I also combined the salsa (mild), and sour cream, and used jalapenos, and made for a nice start to the day. Easy to prepare, and scarfed down by all. Nice little southwest flavor. I can see these as a snack during the games too. Made and enjoyed this and tagged in Zaar Stars.

      What a great idea! I cut the recipe down to one serving and followed Ingrid's suggestion of mixing the salsa with sour cream. Topped the nachos with onions, jalapenos and avocado chunks. This is a perfect breakfast! Thanks for sharing, Shelby Jo. ***Made for PRMR***

      This recipe is just plain fun! I cut it down to just one serving, and it made a really nice breakfast. Like another reviewer, I used more cheese than called for, but what are nachos without a lot of cheese? To garnish, I made a "dressing" by mixing salsa with a bit of sour cream, then drizzled over the top. Chopped scallions would also be great. I'm definitely making this the next time I have my nephews over- the kids will just love it!
