Ingredients

For nacho chips

For the Nachos Meat

  • 0.5 lbs Ground Beef
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil for saute
  • Water

Seasoning Mix for Nachos Meat

For Guacamole

For Picco de Gallo

  • 1 Tomato diced
  • 1 tbsp Onion chopped
  • 1/2 Lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Cilantro
  • Pinch of Salt if needed

Other Toppings

  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 1 cup Colby Jack Cheese grated
  • Sour Cream
  • Jalapeno
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Lime Slices

Instructions

For Nachos Meat

  • Combine seasoning mix in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef to the pan and season with 2 tbsp seasoning mix. Cook about 5-6 minutes until the meat has browned. Add a little bit of water (1/4 cup or less). Continue cooking for another 8-10 minutes or until the water dissolved. Turn off heat, set aside.

For Guacamole

  • In a medium bowl, mash together all ingredients. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate before using.

For Picco de Gallo

  • In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate before using.

For Nacho chips

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix melted butter and garlic powder and other herbs/spices if any. Gently toss the tortilla pieces in the melted butter mixture until they’re lightly coated.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Spread tortillas in a single layer. Bake tortillas for 10-12 minutes, then flip the chips. Continue baking for another 3-5 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside. Do not transfer tortillas, keep them in the tray.

To Assemble the Nachos

  • Preheat the oven to broil (top heat only).
  • Add nachos meat over the baked tortillas, spread evenly, followed by the 2 grated cheese. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Top nachos with guacamole, Picco de Gallo, sour cream, jalapeno, and fresh cilantro and/or any of your preferred toppings. Serve immediately.

Notes

Substitute beef with any protein of your choice such as turkey, chicken, or even tofu for more variety.
