Remember … Avoid soaking, using harsh abrasives, or using the dishwasher, as these can damage the seasoning and reduce the effectiveness of your cast iron pan. Proper care of a cast iron pan can last for generations, and become even more non-stick over time!
Enhance your fiesta experience by pairing our loaded cast iron nachos with a refreshing frozen mango mezcal margarita. The margarita’s tropical sweetness and smoky mezcal undertones perfectly complement the bold and savory flavors of the nachos.
