STEP 4: Dice up a jalapeño pepper (I left in the seeds but only spread it on 3/4 of the dish because the little mouths around here say “spicy!”)

STEP 5: Add queso cheese and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes

I also poured the nacho cheese dip from the jar on top (only because I had it and it was almost gone)…it made a world of a difference! I now considered this a must!!

I used freshly cut cilantro and my homemade salsa recipe. These really made the nacho casserole taste amazing!
