    We had a fun time making these nachos as a family. They were the best nachos that I ever made or tasted.

    Amazing - easy to assemble, bring to Super Bowl party, and bake at 400. I had 2 9 x 13 pyrex dishes assembled and baked them as needed, adding the warmed queso topping and garnishes after. I used about a half 16-oz bottle of banana peppers, very thinly sliced) in the two platters, and left some on the side if people wanted to add. I didn't make the tortilla chips, used a Mexican brand crispy corn tostadas, broken into quarters. Also added crumbled queso fresco, which was a nice touch, giving it an even more authentic Mexican flavor. Big hit!
