    These are so good! I added roasted red pepper the veggies and also added cooked ground italian sausage before i topped the veggies. I was reluctant to make these because of lack of reviews. Now I think that's because this recipe doesn't have a picture. I'll add one shortly. Not only do these taste good they look even better!  -  05 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great nachos! I used an Italian blend of shredded cheese, no onion, chopped fresh seeded tomates, black sliced olives, chopped pepperocinis. I don't like my chips in the microwave so I baked at 350 for about 6 to 8 minutes. This is a wonderful change from reg. nachos. Oh yeah I used the tostitos scoops and made them my little individual bowls stuffed to the brim with the cheese and alfredo sauce. This is a great recipe to add or subtract any of the garnishes so they never would have to be the same each time you make them.  -  10 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was unbelievable! I left out the onions. Went to the antipasta bar and also added roasted red peppers and marinated artichokes! One of the best nacho dishes I have ever had. Nice combo for a change...Will make again and again..  -  04 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
