Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans are eating at home far more than they were in the past. On the same note, we are struggling with challenges such as planning different meals, making enough food for everyone and simply being sick of having to cook all the time. Add to that the complaints of family members and battles with finicky eaters, and it’s enough to make you want to order pizza every night.

Don’t you wish you could just throw some food on the table and let everyone fend for themselves without any grumbling? Well,  TikTok is coming to your rescue.

TikTok has fast become a fun and inspirational resource for helpful, novel and delicious ideas for the kitchen. One trending tip is to turn your dining table into a nacho buffet. And whether you call it a nacho table or table nachos, you really can’t go wrong.

TikTok user @stefherder says they always make a nacho table during their family vacations. After covering the table with foil, they pour on the tortilla chips, generously top them with ground beef and cheese, and place bowls of toppings smack dab in the center.

With a slight variation that’s all about easy cleanup, @themhoffers cover the table with a disposable tablecloth and make a foil runner straight down the middle. Chips, cheese and meat go in the middle and bowls of toppings line the sides. No plates are necessary: everyone gathers their nachos into a pile and eats them where they are. After the meal, they simply roll everything up and toss it in the trash.
