Remember those yummy crock pot burritos I posted a few weeks ago? I loved the easy and inexpensive filling and received many great comments and emails from you guys. I even saw them posted with great reviews on several blogs. I loved the fact I had a great big bag full of the meat and bean mixture in my freezer, but wanted to use it in another way. I spoke with a friend (who's a follower too, Hi Trina!) who came up with the great idea of using the leftover filling to make nachos. We both agreed these were even better than the burritos! If you made the burritos and have a bag of the filling leftover in the freezer you must defrost it ASAP and make these nachos. If you haven't tried this great crock pot filling you must! It really is great and a LOT cheaper than buying nachos at Taco Bell! I hope you try this recipe soon. Enjoy :)
