Sloppy Joe Nachos

I love when I can get two dinner recipes out of one.  Although this one wasn't planned, it kind of just came to be when I realized I was going to have a LOT of leftover sloppy joe filling.

While the sloppy joe filling was simmering, "The Mr." couldn't wait to taste it, so he pulled out the Doritos and scooped up a bite full.  "This is good," he says and there was the moment we both realized Sloppy Joe Nachos would be amazing.

Think about it, the filling already has meat, peppers and onions in it and if you were to add cumin, it would taste like taco filling.  

Have you ever had nachos on Doritos?  I grew up eating nachos that way and it adds a lot of extra cheesy flavor!  Of course, regular tortilla chips would still be delicious too, but why have plain when you could have nacho cheese?

Might sound strange, but this really was delicious.
