Personally, I really like eating nachos in all shapes and sizes, be it vegan, beefy, or seafood (ok, I just came up with that, does that exist? Should it? Seafood nachos? Can I make it? Got myself really excited now!)⁣

Here's one of my favourites - sometimes I have it with nachos on the bottom, sometimes nachos on the top, I can never really decide which one is nicer or if I even have a preference. For picture purposes, this one has the nachos on the bottom, because that's the only way it's really pretty.

I urge you to go crazy on the toppings - have more jalapeños, more onions, more peppers, you can add other veggies, like fresh green peas, or avocado..the world really is your oyster here, as I highly doubt you could ever possibly put too much on top of nachos.

We all know that it is absolutely necessary to add as much cheese as your belly (or the plate) can fit!
