MACHO NACHOS ~ TORTILLA TRAY ~ NACHO BELL GRANDE ~ NACHO SUPREME ~ EPIC NACHOS
Whatever you want to call them
I’ll just stick with
My husband and I were quite busy and it was nearing dinner time, (the kids have all moved out and I’m not pressed/guilted into thinking I have to cook “Healthy Family Meals” big enough to serve all 5 of us anymore)…. YES We are Empty Nesters! HaHa!!!
Anyway – We were both on the verge of HANGRY – I was thinking so what can I do with what I already have? My Thinking Cap went on — LEFTOVER shredded chicken breast came to mind (mmmmm) perfect for crispy, crunchy tortilla chips covered in gooey, melted cheese topped with taco sauce, onions, peppers, and tomatoes from the garden and heaping dollop of sour cream ~ such wonderful flavor combinations.
I have a nice baking stone – it is the perfect size for my husband and I, plus I LOVE to use it for this recipe – the cheese cleans off the stone surface easily! OR You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easier.
If you have leftover meat like I did feel free to use whatever type of meat you like AND feel free to USE as much or as little of whatever vegetables/toppings you like! This is your masterpiece design it for your eating pleasure!!!
HEAVENLY DELICIOUS NACHOS
1LB. Ground Beef/Chicken OR Meat of Your Choice
1/2 Cup Onions, diced
Season meat – I like to use Black Pepper and Garlic Salt/Season Salt
1 can Refried/Kidney/Black Beans
Taco Seasoning (homemade or you can use a packet)
Shredded Cheese of choice (I like a mixed variety)
Roma Tomatoes, diced OR Cherry Tomatoes, sliced
2 to 3 Green Onions with Tops, sliced
Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.
Brown the ground beef, diced onions and seasonings over medium-high heat until fully cooked, drain grease then add beans (if you want to use them) and add taco seasoning including whatever liquid the package says – stirring until well mixed. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid mostly evaporates, about 5 minutes.
While the beef is simmering, add a generous layer of chips to your baking sheet and sprinkle with a light layer of cheese. Then sprinkle meat/beans mixture, over top of tortillas then top with more shredded cheese!!!!
Bake at 400º – 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven, and top as desired. I start with my sauce – then I sprinkle my vegetables then my dollop of sour cream and guacamole if I have it! Serve immediately.
