Sweet Pepper Nachos

Who loves nachos? What are your favorite kind?

I am a big fan of nachos – any type of Mexican actually. When I was pregnant with my girls, nachos were one of the foods I craved.

One of my favorite nachos are sweet pepper nachos. You can bake them in your oven or in a toaster oven. I either use halved sweet peppers or thick sliced peppers.

You can make these sweet pepper nachos as a snack or a meal. They taste great with ground pork, shredded cheddar cheese, and your favorite nacho toppings.

Below is my recipe for sweet pepper nachos.
