Sounds great... I love Nachos so this is probably a lot better for me than the restaurant ones. Thanks!

We're sorry you find this recipe unacceptable. We follow the guidelines from the ADA, which suggest less than 60g of carbs for an entire meal. We have many other recipes on our site that are lower in carbohydrates than these nachos.

Way to much Carbohydrates.
