The Easiest Nachos Ever!

on May 4, 2018

In light of the fact that tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, I’m sharing how I make The Easiest Nachos Ever! They’re easy to do and they’re easy to eat! When I was recovering from my winter of discontent (pancreatitis), this was one of the first things I craved and actually wanted to eat. It was scary to get back to eating normal food, and while I was still watching the fat so there wouldn’t be any more bouts of incredible pain, I was willing to risk it to eat something fairly normal. I hadn’t been eating much, I can tell you that, so we made a batch of these nachos, and wow, did they hit the spot! Deep breath, okay, here we go. Let’s try eating some of these bad boys. Hey – it didn’t go too bad. Not bad at all. There are a million ways to make nachos out there, and everyone has their favorite toppings to put on them, but this is our usual way of making them. Very easy. Very fast. Very good.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

The Easiest Nachos Ever!

Brown in a non-stick pan:

1 pound of lean ground beef (I used turkey here)

Add:

1 package of taco seasoning (sometimes I feel that a whole package is too much, so I usually use 1/2 of a package)

1/4 cup water

Cook until thick.

Put on a sided baking sheet:

a layer of tortilla chips – whatever kind you like

Layer on:

the ground beef (or turkey)

4-8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese (I used about 4 ounces, but if you like more cheese, load it on!)

Broil for 3-5 minutes to melt cheese (watch closely so they don’t burn).

Add toppings:

black olives, sliced

sour cream

salsa

green onions, sliced (I had chives ready in my garden so I used those instead – it’s so exciting to be able to do that after a long, cold winter)

You can also use shredded lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, sliced jalapeno or any other toppings you like on there.

Start with a nice layer of tortilla chips.

On goes the browned and seasoned ground beef and shredded cheese. After broiling, you can see how melty and crispy they are.

Here they are with all of our toppings. Add whatever you want to make them just the way you like them.

These nachos are a great snack, lunch, or even dinner. I just leave them on the baking sheet and let everyone dig in.

Oh yeah, baby.

What can I say? You’re going to want to try these easy nachos this weekend. Make up a big pitcher of margaritas and enjoy them by celebrating with friends. (My friend Julie makes a mean margarita – they’re so good! I’ll have to share that recipe sometime!) You and your friends will love The Easiest Nachos Ever!
