Loaded Nachos

Mmmm….there hasn’t been a nacho that I haven’t adored…and this is recipe is no exception! I love making nachos because they are so simple…most of the ingredients you can get ahead of time and have on hand. They are great for company- load em up and pop em in the oven, a couple of mins under the broiler and they are done! Trust me, there won’t be a chip left!

Saute 1 lb of your choice of meat {I used ground turkey, because I was being so health conscious}, then add 1 taco seasoning pack with 1/3 cup water.

I wasn’t planning on making nachos- but I had all of this on hand, so why not! We were painting……we hadn’t had lunch or dinner yet, it just seemed right.

So, here we have refried beans, white cheese, pepper jack cheese, jalps, salsa {I typically make my own salsa, but Newman’s own was sufficient} and some sour cream. The great thing about nachos is that you really can’t go wrong making them…. it’s fine to use different kinds of cheeses {cheddar is great!} and add your favorite toppings {love guacamole too!}. You can even choose different meats {roaster chicken, shrimp, crab, beef, etc}.

Lay out corn tortilla chips on a foil lined baking sheet { you can also use a round pizza pan with edges}.

These are my absolute favorite corn tortilla chips…they are sold in my grocery store in the Mexican Aisle. 

Add your favorite toppings all over {save your salsa, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo for after broiling}.

Broil on high for 2-3 mins.

Top with sour cream and salsa! Enjoy!
