Loaded Nachos In Less Than 10 Minutes

My favorite day of the week is Tuesday! Why? Because it’s Taco Tuesday! Of course, any day that features Mexican food is my favorite. What can I say? I heart Mexican food and Loaded Nachos with Pace® Snacking Salsa.

Loaded Nachos in 10 Minutes

I remember the first time I had Mexican food when I was a little girl. It was love at first bite. Since then, I’ve enjoyed Mexican cuisine in Mexico, on Taco Tuesdays and everywhere in between.

When it comes to entertaining family and friends, I often turn to my Taco Tuesday menu because it’s so popular. Plus, Loaded Nachos are so easy to make and it’s a complete meal. Add some Mexican brownies or churros and dinner is served.

Loaded Nachos happen to be my favorite food of all time and I take them seriously. Proportions are everything when it comes to layering nachos and the salsa is the most important ingredient of all. You can’t top a plate of loaded nachos with just any salsa. It has to be the best. That’s why I top my nachos with Pace Snacking Salsa.

Pace Snacking Salsa is my favorite salsa because it’s made with high-quality ingredients and four unique peppers – Ancho, Pasilla, Guajillo and Chipotle.  This bold kick of flavor and taste is a delicious way to top my loaded nachos. If you’re looking for the perfect salsa for dipping and snacking, this is it. Give me a bowl of Pace Snacking Salsa and some chips and I’m one happy girl.

Quick and Easy Loaded Nachos

You are not going to believe how quick and easy it is to make these loaded nachos. You just need a few ingredients, including the Pace Snacking Salsa and Pace® Taco Complete. Pace Taco Complete includes everything you need to make nachos or tacos – taco meat, corn, peppers, and black beans. It’s so easy to use, just heat, stuff and eat. It makes 7 tacos and is available at select Publix stores.

I purchased all of the ingredients for Loaded Nachos at my local Publix. Pace® Snacking Salsa and Pace Taco Complete can be found in the international food aisle.
