Tips and Tricks:

  • Fries. If you can’t find this specific brand of fries, you can use any crispy frozen fries. The key is the brand needs to be crispy for the desired outcome, Crinkle, curly, and other varieties simply won’t result in the same fries we love at Taco Bell.
  • Toppings. While the cheese is definitely the best part, feel free to add all of your favorite nacho toppings. Some ideas include diced onion, jalapenos, guacamole, and more. This recipe can easily be customizable.
  • Cheese. Make sure to microwave the cheese in increments. This will prevent the cheese from burning.
