Macho Nachos: Dive into a flavor explosion!

Crispy, house-made kettle chips form the foundation for this epic nacho adventure. Tangy, beer-infused chorizo queso and our hearty barnyard chili smother the chips in a savory embrace. Melted cheese adds a gooey layer of deliciousness, while cool sour cream, crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and refreshing onions create a textural contrast and brighten the flavors. Spicy jalapenos add a touch of heat for those who like it bold.

Macho Nachos are the perfect appetizer  to share with friends, a satisfying meal on their own, or the ultimate game-day snack. Come to Puddle Jumpers and experience them yourself!
