Reader’s Recipe: Julie’s Cast Iron Nachos (over the fire!)

I think my favorite thing about moving back to the west coast (besides, you know, the beauty) has been being reunited with good (really good) Mexican food. Sorry, New York, you just didn’t cut it. I’ve been eating burritos, chile rellenos and salsa verde enchiladas like it’s my job and I’m getting paid to do so (I wish). Julie’s recipe caught my eye this week, not only because it’s nachos, but because she cooked it over a campfire. This recipe just made camping a whole lot more delicious. This one is great for the kids and grandkids.

Here’s what Julie has to say:
“We just made this last weekend. It was sooooo good, everyone loved it!”
