Copycat Recipe Cheddar's Nachos

Copycat Recipe Cheddar’s Nachos – We call these Open Face Nacho’s!  We ate something similar at Cheddar’s and loved them so I decided to create my own recipe and this is what I came up with!  It is pretty close to their version and tasty!  I like using the taco shells instead of tortilla chips plus I like to make my own Taco Seasoning too which I also use in this recipe.  This is a really simple appetizer.
