Super Nachos Delux

"I found this in a 1976 Sunset Hors d'oeuveres cookbook and have been making it ever since. We sometimes make a meal out of it. If you don't want to use the chorizo, you can use all ground beef."

  1. This is absolutely the best nachos recipe. I was so happy to find it posted here. I've been making these nachos for my family since 1976 when Sunset magazine featured it -- my kids always ask for this for Super Bowl Sunday. We have always used Silva's linguica instead of the chorizo. Definitely a keeper!


This is a picture of me with my oldest grandson, DJ and was taken this past summer when we went on a cruise and land tour of Alaska. I am retired after working for the same company for 25 years. My husband is a retired military officer. After the military he started working for Lockheed and is now retired from there as well. We live in San Jose, CA and have lived in the same house for over 33 years. We have two grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I love to try new recipes and jazz up old ones. Taste of Home and Southern Living are my favorite recipe magazines(I enjoy reading a little bit about the people who submit the recipes). Recipe Zaar is just an incredible site. I've made many new friends since joining. I have tons of cookbooks -- but now when I need a new recipe that I know I can count on, I come here! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
