"Looking for something different and loving Mexican food I found this recipe. I changed a few things and made it my own. Sheet Pan Nachos is a great easy supper. So many ways to make it, share it, and love it! It's me and my husband at home now. We put it on a TV tray and shared the same sheet at the same time while watching one of our favorite shows! I made just half a recipe and that was almost more than plenty enough for both of us! Cut ingredients in half if you want a smaller amount. You can add green chilies, hot peppers, top with sour cream, taco sauce, possibilities are endless!"
