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.
