The Super Bowl is this Sunday and everyone, well most everyone, is trying to find the perfect appetizers to serve. If you’re still undecided, you should give these nachos a whirl. They are unbelievably good.

One of my Facebook friends asked me a while back, what kind of cheese sauce I would use on BBQ Nachos? My first thought was, ‘BBQ Nachos?’.. That sounds like the yummiest thing in the world!’ And then my next thought was… ‘Google’.

   I typed in ‘BBQ Nachos’ and the first recipe that pulled up was Bobby Flay’s. That man is a genius. I scoped out his recipe and loved everything about it. The sauce sounded amazing, so I responded back to her question on Facebook, and gave her the link to Bobby’s recipe.

When I was done, I quickly printed the recipe off for myself, and knew I would be making them ASAP. I made a few changes to the original recipe, and we totally loved the outcome. We were scarfing these down like animals! YUM!

  1. I may have become a familiar face as I continue to test out your delicious recipes, and I have added this one to my completed list. It was satisfying, and I think making the cheese sauce as recommended above is great for parties – but as I made it for my small family, next time I will probably just use jarred cheese with tomato /green chillies (Rotel).

    The BBQ sauce and cheese was a delicious surprise. As you usual, I love your blog and am a dedicated follower. Thanks for sharing this one too!
