1 (1.25 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
1 (18 ounce) package
restaurant-style tortilla chips
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, or more to taste
1 (15.5 ounce) can
sour cream, or more to taste
1 (10 ounce) can
pitted black olives, drained and chopped
green onions, diced
1 (4 ounce) can
sliced jalapeno peppers, drained
I like to make this using ground turkey or ground chicken and I like to use either tomato juice or tomato sauce instead of water when I combine the taco seasoning with the browned ground meat. I use homemade taco seasoning, homemade refried beans, homemade salsa in this recipe--that really takes it to a whole other level. My boys absolutely love this. It's great for those weekends when nothing in the cupboard sounds good for lunch/dinner and you just want something fun. GREAT "dad's cooking!" meal.
It was an okay recipe. If I make it next time, I will half the chips. I will be using another recipe or creating my own next time.
This is almost the exact recipe that I use for nachos. Helpful hint...mix the beans with the seasoned beef. Beans alone are sometimes difficult to spread.
Great recipe. The only change I made was add the beans to the meat mixture. Careful with the broiling time, mine took only 3 minutes. For toppings I used (after it came out of the oven): green chili's, black olives, green onion, sour cream and salsa. I will never make nachos in the microwave again, oven only. Absolutely Delicious.
YUM! I layered everything except the salsa and sour cream and threw it under the broiler until browned and bubbly (didn't measure anything, just did it all to taste). I also added some diced tomatoes and used chopped jalapenos instead of sliced (for more even distribution). This was a perfect quick, fun dinner for tonight...hubby raved! I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
I cooked ground beef, taco mix, water, refried bean and salsa as in the instruction and eat it with tortilla. So easy to make and tastes very good!
I love loaded nachos. You can add shredded chicken to which you heat through with BBQ sauce to taste.
Very good next time I will make half of this amount.
