Reuben Nachos Recipe

We can thank Irish-Americans for the tradition of eating corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. Our family has readily adopted this tradition, but usually in sandwich form, with the Reuben. A quick and easy twist on this favorite sandwich, the Reuben Nachos are sure to be a hit with you and yours—St. Patrick's Day or not!
