Mexican food is definitely one of my favorite foods to eat. Any day, any time. I LOVE it. Spicy, mild, I'll take it either way. These flavorful baked nachos are one of my favorites to make at home. Super easy and they're different every time, depending on what I have on hand in the fridge.
With Cinco De Mayo coming up, I had to re-post my recipe for the family favorite......
It's like a hearty one dish meal you can throw together within 10 minutes! Perfect with any beverage....margaritas, beer, sangria, MILK, Yum.
I began layering; chips, cheese, yellow and orange bell peppers, onions, ground beef and black beans.
A high protein meal, the entire family could devour.
Add a little salsa and or guacamole and sour cream.....perfect.
Here's what you need for success:
Tortilla chips or pita chips
cheese of choice, I used low fat mozzarella, grated
1 pound of ground beef
1 can of black beans
1 small red onion
tomatoes, chopped if you have them
and any other topping you feel like chopping up and adding
Place ground beef in a skillet and brown. Add taco seasoning to taste and cook a little longer. Set aside.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the tortilla chips on the foil. Sprinkle grated cheese on top of chips, layer with bell pepper, red onion, browned ground beef and black beans.
Place in oven on broil for 4-5 minutes. Just long enough so the cheese is good and melted.
Serve with salsa, sour cream or guacamole if desired.
