These nachos were so colorful and made a great presentation for a quick snack. I did back mine in the oven at 400 for about 10 minutes to try to keep them crisp. However, they did get a little soggy on the bottom which I was surprised at. I don't do a lot of microwave cooking and just felt more comfortable using my oven. There could be so many variations of this recipe. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2012
Best if made in smaller individual size portions as a baked snack eaten quickly. So good I have them weekly!
I also baked them in the oven for about 10 minutes. They were good. A little bit healthier with the veggies. I added black olives. Thanks DayJahView :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
