When we visit my Mother-in-Law in Utah, she always makes nachos for all the grand-kids. Her nachos consist of melting shredded cheese on chips in the microwave and my kids (as well as myself) LOVE it! I decided to take her nachos to the next level and make enough for everyone at one time! That is where the idea of baked nachos was born. Ha Ha!
Roughly 6 cups of tortilla chips (or enough to fill the bottom of a cookie sheet )
1 pound of ground beef
2 Tablespoons of taco seasoning
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups of cheddar cheese
2 tomatoes, diced
2 avocados, diced
4 green onions, diced
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
On the stove top, cook your meat on medium high heat until brown. Once cooked add your taco seasoning and set aside.
On a cookie sheet , spread out your chips so they cover the majority of the cookie sheet bottom. On top of the chips add your cooked meat and black beans spreading them out at evenly as possible. Sprinkle your cheese on top of the meat and beans and place in the preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes until your cheese is melted.
Once it is done, remove from the oven and put on the tomatoes, avocados, and green onions, spreading them out as evenly as possible.
Now you are ready to eat! I served mine with salsa and sour cream!
