This is one of the easiest recipes to make, it was also my oldest son’s favorite, so I thought it deserved some mention. Plus, it’s a real recipe for real people, which is really what I am all about, if you have been following for me for a while, you will notice that I only use common ingredients, and do not require you to go to a specialty grocery shop.
Loaded Nachos have to be a favorite food of everyone. At one point or another in our lives, we all had the opportunity to grab some, whether it was at a local restaurant, a chain restaurant or at a sporting event. Last time I bought my son some at the Philadelphia Flyers hockey game, I want to say I pay close to $20 for a plate, and I was like that’s crazy, but I have to always remind my cheap self that it is part of the experience, so I need to not stress about it so much. Meanwhile, you know I am thinking of my cheap self, I could have made them for about $2.00.
So, here is the very delicious and awesome loaded nachos, that I made my son, they started out with lining the air fryer basket with foil, which is one of the most common questions in the air fryer group, that I am lucky to be running, which I love all of the questions and information, I gather myself. And I love hearing about other people’s adventures with the air fryer, they always give me tons and tons of ideas.
Air fryer nachos might be the ultimate easy appetizer, it’s one of the most perfect foods I have made thus far, and my kids ate them up in seconds. They are great during the summer because you can use all of the fresh vegetables, tomatoes, are awesome cut up on this.
