Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner, are you ready for the big game?  I love football, but the highlight of my day is usually the food. I love making tasty snacks and treats for our guests. One of my favorite football snacks is loaded nachos. They are easy to make and they are the perfect game day snack.

We make homemade baked tortilla chips and load them with toppings. A few of our favorites are cheese, black beans, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, jalapeno slices, and green onion. If you want to add shredded chicken or sour cream, go for it. For parties, I like to set out a variety of toppings so everyone can customize their own plate of loaded nachos.

Loaded nachos are always a hit at our Super Bowl parties. Give them a try this year!
