Copycat Recipe Cheddar’s Nachos

We love this Copycat Recipe Cheddar’s Nachos. We call these Open Face Nachos. We enjoyed something similar at Cheddar’s Restaurant so I decided to create my own appetizer recipe at home.

Copycat Recipe Cheddar's Nachos

It is pretty close to their version and tasty.  I like using the taco shells instead of tortilla chips plus I like to make my own Taco Seasoning too which I also use in this recipe.  This is a really simple appetizer recipe that everyone will enjoy. If you don’t have tortilla chips that is no problem because you can use taco shells instead.

We hope you enjoy this frugal recipe for Copycat Recipe Cheddar’s Nachos as much as we do. I love being able to enjoy something when dining out and then making it at home. It is a great money saver.
