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.
I tried this recipe but will go back to my old standard. I make up my super chili with beans in huge batches and one of the things I use it for is topping for nachos. I don't use taco seasoning as it is too salty. Then I add all the toppings mentioned in this recipe. Microwave works fine also.
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.
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. :)
Very easy and tasty. Used the suggestion to cook the beans with the meat and taco seasoning. Here in Texas we commonly use canned charro beans (in jalapeno liquid) or borracho beans (in a beer and water liquid)rather than refried beans. Drained the liquid off the beans before adding it to the meat. Did not measure the amount of shredded cheddar cheese, just covered the meat and the chips. No left-overs, darn.
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.
