Turkey nacho supreme

25 Jul

Found this recipe in family circle magazine. I made it one night and then had to run out the door before I could even try it! I did have it as leftovers the next day, but the chips weren’t crunchy… Also husband left off the tomatoes the first time. So I made it again (with the tomatoes) and it was delicious!
