"This is one of my favorite recipes from Rachael Ray. These nachos are even company-worthy. The ingredients and steps are a bit involved (she can do it in 30 minutes) but are very worth the effort. I made a double batch of these for a family reunion and they were devoured. *Added note - If you end up with extra grease after browning the meat, drain. I recommend assembling as written for a wonderful presentation. The chips don't get soggy (unless you leave them sitting for a very long time!). :-)"

"These are wonderful! My husband loves nachos and he really enjoyed these. They are extremely tasty and filling. Great for football Sunday!"
"This is a wonderful piled-high dinner. We used doritos nacho cheese for the chips. The beef and beans topping is really good and flavorful, but for the cheese sauce, next time we would just sprinkle shredded monterey jack and then top with the additional optional toppings."
"First the bag amount must be wrong 1 22 ounce bad serves 22 people and this recipe serves 4-6 using 2 24 ounce bags. Making the NV not so bad. I thinking it is 2 4 ounce bags. ;)
We love nachos and it is so versatile. The beef n bean topping sounds great as is but trying to keep the beef intake down I skipped it and I use pinto (which I mashed so it stays on the tortillas better) in place of the black beans. As for the cheese sauce I kept it straight cheese keeping the glutin and the extra fat out. I did top with strained kefir, guacamole, olives, and jalapenos. Gracias! Made for ZWT #8"
"DD prepared this for ZWT5. She added lime juice to pico de gallo and extra Frank's to meat mixture. We all agreed that next time cheese sauce should go on top of meat/beans mixture. The flavors were delicious!"
"These were pretty good. I made these exactly as stated. I do think the cheese sauce was a little too watery. Other than that, good recipe."
"The flavor was pretty good, although I think if I make it again, I might throw some lime juice in, to give it some tang. I left the chips out (because I didn't want them to get soggy) and I put the cheese on top of the meat mixture instead. I ended up calling it "Ugly Nachos" because it didn't look very pretty, but it tasted good. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is it came out REALLY greasy and I drained alot of the grease from the dish before I put it on the table. I think it came from the olive oil and from the cheese. If I make it again, I'll have to figure out a way to drain the grease before assembling it."
