Nachos, they're not just for snacking anymore. Especially when you make them with Snake River Farms American Wagyu tenderloin pieces. That being said, you can really elevate the quality of snacks at your next pre-game party, movie night or other at-home event with this recipe.

The secret to nacho success is the quality of ingredients. You're starting with amazing beef, so don't stop there. Look for a chip that's thick enough to hold up to the toppings. We found a local grocery story that makes them in-house. Good quality cheeses and fresh toppings add to the deliciousness meter.
