What a fun cookbook! Dan Whalen has turned all kinds of foods into “nachos” and has presented them in his cookbook, Nachos for Dinner: Surprising Sheet Pan Meals the Whole Family Will Love. This is definitely not a cookbook full of nachos with different toppings; rather it is a cookbook with unique ideas where many things are substituted for the tortilla chips, and many toppings are substituted for the beans, shredded meats, and cheese that usually top nachos.

While there are dozens of beautiful photographs, each type of nacho isn’t pictured, which is a shame, but the ones that are pictured look mouthwatering. It’s nice that the recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy to follow because cooks from beginning to advanced will find it easy to make their new favorite kinds of nachos.

For those who aren’t in a cooking mood but are just wanting to read, this is an excellent choice. It covers the origin of nachos and has notes, hints, and stories at the beginning of each recipe. The book is well-written, and fun to read. The facts may not help readers win Jeopardy, but they are interesting and will inspire a different kind of nachos every night.

The cookbook includes sauces, toppings, and bases for all kinds of scrumptious nachos, and for those who don’t like boring meals and want to avoid fast food, it is a perfect addition to any cookbook shelf.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
