Nachos from Laura

These are simple and awesome….I just threw stuff together and it ended up being really good. I serve it on Tortilla Chips but it goes equally well as a taco or even as chili.

  • 1 pound ground beef, 95% lean
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 can chopped fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can mild chiles, drained and diced
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix, medium
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese, divided
  • Tortilla chips, to taste
  • Guacamole, to taste
  • Sour cream, to taste
  • Salsa, to taste

Brown meat and onions together, drain fat if needed.  Add tomatoes in juice and seasoning mix, stir and allow to simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or so.

Add drained canned chiles, frozen corn, and drained black beans. Mix well and simmer until corn in hot.

Turn off heat.  Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup cheese, mix until cheese is fully melted.

Plate chips, pour mixture over and top with remaining chips.  Add guacamole, sour cream, and/or salsa according to your taste.

You can substitute ground chicken or turkey for the beef if you want to make it a little “healthier.”

So easy, a kid can make it!

Feed it to the kids…..Guaranteed winner and healthy too.

    This looks so good to me Laura. I love taco’s and I love “dips” with meat in them. I will for sure try these. Loved the pics with Hot Rod too although I can see the Chicago Bears mug in the background!! Tsk, tsk!!!!

    That mug goes EVERYWHERE with me… filled with ice water. It’s from 1985, when my Bears slammed into the SuperBowl. So it’s a collector’s item… because it also came from a now-gone Chicago store that used to be EVERYWHERE before 7-11 showed up… White Hen.

    Wish I could find another one, ’cause that one is starting to wear out.

    Enjoy the Nachos. They’re wonderful. And good as leftovers, too. Great SuperBowl food….
