Family Favorite-Nachos

Tasty and simple to make, nachos you will love to make!

The Good:  These are absolutely delicious and easy to make.  Great for parties and for children who like to help in the kitchen!
The Bad: Its really hard to stop eating these so we always make massive amounts.
The Ugly:  These are terrible for dieters.

Suggestions before starting:
Please do not get frazzled because I do not give amounts to anything with this recipe.  This is another recipe where you do it how you like.
Any tortilla chips work but we like to use scoops because they are so much easier to eat.
I do not typically like olives but I do like green olives on these.
Chili powder is best fresh.  Make sure you get the spice not the mix.
Do not be afraid to add plenty of spice.  It is hard to overdo it.
