Wickedly Good Nachos on Anna Maria Island!

Great for sharing, or for eating all on your own!

This week for the Anna Maria Island X Football Sunday: Recipe Series we will be focusing on one of my personal favorites-NACHOS!

Nachos are a quick and easy dinner idea and are great for munching on while watching your team dominate on the field. Great for sharing, or for eating all on your own!

When staying at one of our Anna Maria Island Vacation Rentals if you don’t feel like making your own nachos I would suggest making the quick trip up the street to Wicked Cantina. Amazing wicked tacos, nachos, guacamole and of course margaritas! Thos are just a few of my favorites but you really cant go wrong with anything on their menu!
