    It was okay. I have other nacho recipes that we like better but my grandkids like this. The recipe didn't say what to do with the chopped plum tomatoes so we just added them on after baking.

    So good, tasty, and easy! I used regular salsa queso dip on one end of the pan and white cheese dip on the other end--my husband and I loved it both ways. It was a cold and damp spring night and this was the perfect warm and comforting meal. I'm not ashamed to say we ate about two-thirds of the 9x13 pan between the two of us!
