"Here's another fun contribution from my Grandparentsdoccom Newsletter - Per their intro: "Whether it's for a party or dinner, this festive dish is a fun twist on both nachos & baked potatoes. These nachos are not only loaded w/delicious toppings, they’re loaded w/nutrition too! Russet potatoes provide potassium & B6 while beans & tomatoes pack in a healthy dose of fiber." ... The Kids Cook Monday is a campaign that encourages grandparents, parents & kids to start their wk off right by making Monday a family night. I love recipes like this, esp because my 9 yr-old grandson loves to cook & even watches cooking shows on TV :-) Enjoy!"
