Pace those tummies!

Nachos are everyone’s favourite!

You can go vegetarian or you can add cooked/shredded meats to nachos for a meaty version. You can even dress your nachos with a meaty Chilli instead of just shredded meat. Crispy bacon is another quick option to add meats to vegetarian nachos. Even the tortillas, can be different types and different colours. Variety is always good and change is better than always serving the same old options..
