    You are so awesome. I have been looking for recipes for Authentic Mexican food for a while now. My boyfriend absolutely loves it, and stops at a mexican restaurant almost daily for their tacos or nachos or burritos (which by the way are his absolute favorite). Once I found your website I was able to recreate that taste that he was looking for and make enough that he can come back for seconds or thirds or even the next day to get more. This recipe was absolutley awesome.

      Hi Amber,

      That’s awesome!! Now you have a Mexican restaurant right in your own home 🙂

      Here’s a tip: To change the nachos up every now and then try another type of meat from one of the other Mexican recipes. They’ll all work, for instance, carne asada nachos, grilled chicken nachos… Shhhh, don’t tell anyone LOL.

      Happy Cooking!

    Hi David,
    I really, really love your recipes. I must say I view your site often to come up with an idea for dinner. Tonight I’m hear for the nachos for our Christmas eve mexican dinner. The only think I am missing is how many people do your recipes serve?
    Oh also it looks as though I don’t see all the recipes when I click on catagories to the right. For instance “Mexican (24)” does that mean there are 24 recipes?
    Thank you and I love your detailed information.

      Hi Debby,

      It’s sooo nice to hear you like what you see hear, thank you for your kind words.

      Most of the recipes serve anywhere from 6-10 people, a little more or a little less depending on portion size. It’s hard to give an accurate serving number since some people eat more and some less. Sometimes people serve only grownups and sometimes kids. In all of these cases serving sizes will be different.

      The best rule of thumb is to consider how much food you prepare for a given meal. (Ex: How much chicken or beef do you usually use when you’re cooking an average meal at home.) Compare what you would normally use against a recipe, this should give you a pretty good idea of how many people (the people you normally cook for) it should serve. I hope that makes sense 🙂

      As for the nachos, what I put in the recipe is what I used to make one really big plate of nachos (That was my entire dinner that night). I put links (colored blue) to other recipes where you can find how to make the necessary ingredients (other than what you’d get in the store). I would guess you can probably make 6-8 plates of nachos and still have some leftovers. Of course you’ll need more tortillas.

      And, you’re right. The number “24” is how many Mexican recipes I currently have. I have it set up to show 10 recipes per page (Just title and description). If you scroll to the bottom (left) you will see a link that says something like “older posts” or “older entries”. Click on that to go to the next page of recipes. When you get to the second page you will then see another link at the top (right) that says “newer posts” or “newer entries”. That will take you back to the page you were just on. Or you can scroll down and click the link to go to the next page.

      I hope this will help you and please let me know how your nachos come out 🙂
      Happy Cooking!
      David
