This recipe is also as my latest installment for the Game Day Eats Series I do with Matt. Episode 4 is about nachos. He’s coming in hot with Buffalo Chicken Nachos, which is pretty awesome, but fingers crossed these Southern BBQ Nachos are going to make me a 3-peat winner. Now here’s where I need your help: head over to my InstaStories and a vote for who did this week’s nacho theme better.
