Bacon Nachos

"This recipe is inspired by appleydapply Bacon and Onion Nachos. We had unexpected company come by and I wanted to make lunch for them. This is the result I got. It's hot and spicy but you can decrease the amount of jalapeno peppers. If you do not like crisp vegetables, microwave them to the desired consistency you like. We like crisp."

    I hate being the odd one out, but based on all the other reviews, I really felt this would be a great snack for my dh. The only change I made was to use yellow onion and made just 2 servings. He said that while he did like it, there was just not much too it. The biggest thing (he said) is that this is a recipe you should eat right away because after just a few minutes, it seemed to get dry quickly (even with the melted cheese). Perhaps a dollop of sour cream for scooping would be good. I'm married to a man who loves nachos, and this one just didn't do it for him. He said he rates it 3-stars = liked it (it wasn't 'bad'), but wouldn't want it again.

    Left out the black olives, and as another reviewer did, added some diced tomatoes. Great Great football snack. The bacon worked out well on these, as my son and I devoured during the game. The ingredients worked out well with each other. Made for PRMR Tag.

    wow this is amazing. Even better than the ones we ate in restaurants. I had to omit the black olives as I though I had a can but no :( I used less jalapeno. But next time I'll add more. I used a mix of cheddar cheese with garlic. Very yummy. Thanks Nimz :) Made for PRMR tag game

    Wow, 10 stars, fabulous! And very easy, get everything together - the longest part is cooking the bacon! I also slightly cooked my red onion, since I had cut it into slices rather than chopped. I added sour cream and an avocado when I served it .. I had intended to make guacamole, but then thought the avo might be nice just as was! I really love nachos and rarely prepare them, when I make something this delicious I wonder why I don't do it more often! Thanks Nimz, loved this, going to be making it much more often!
