    Mom67's Note:

    My kids don't love salsa or "chunky" tomatoes, so I came up with this super simple version of nachos that kids adore. In my house, they're the #1 requested after-school and movie snack! The measurements are purely an estimate, so add based on your tastes. And for adults or kids who don't mind them, by all means add green onions, black beans and/or chopped tomatoes!

      Made these for a snack while we were watching a movie. My family enjoyed them. I followed the recipe exactly as written. My kids poured some salsa on top too. Quick and easy snack to make.

      Even my kids can do this so I love it! My 10 yr old helped me yesterday, and today did this by herself. The kids gobbled them up in no time. I usually made this same recipe but use the broiler. (Never really thought about using the micro) This is just as tasty but quicker. Great snack. Made for My 3 Chefs. Thx Mom67
