Sloppy Joe Nachos Recipe

If you love sloppy joe sandwiches these delicious nachos are perfect for you. I can’t believe I never thought of this idea before but when I came across it on Serious Eats I knew I had to give it a try. These amazing nachos are loaded with homemade sloppy joe meat and warmed queso dip. If you would prefer you can load these up with additional ingredients. Some good ideas would be to add chopped green pepper and onion to the meat mixture. If you are looking for ideas for your game day party, these nachos make an excellent choice for an appetizer. The nachos are super easy to prepare and take very little time. Chances are you already have a lot of the ingredients for the meat mixture on hand. Enjoy.
