Frito Nachos

This recipe is one of those "I'm hungry so let's just throw something together" recipes. Super quick. Really easy. Fantastically yummy. The perfect trifecta. 
Plus, it's my favorite type of food. Mexican. My go to comfort food. I made this dish the night after my family left. My family lives in 3 different states: North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. It use to be 4 until grandpa moved back to Georgia. Once a year, we make it a point to spend a weekend together. So, I needed some good ole comfort food after they left. 
I hope your family enjoys this dish as much as we did. Happy eating !
