Beef Nachos


Years ago there was a little Pub in a nearby town that served the most wonderful nachos.  I think they were actually made with Nacho flavored Doritos, but the salsa was made in their little kitchen.  I’ve spent a lot of years trying to duplicate their recipe and haven’t quite succeeded.  But, this version is quick and easy.  It’s a great way to use up leftover ground beef.

Beef Nachos

Tortilla Chips – enough to cover the bottom of pan

*1 cup cooked, seasoned ground beef with onions

3/4 cup medium salsa

1/2 cup cheddar cheese

1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese

sour cream – optional topping after cooking

Layer chips on bottom of a cookie sheet or pan.  Top with beef/onion, salsa and cheese.  Cook under broiler for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted to your liking.  Top with sour cream and enjoy!

*If you’re not using leftover ground beef, season your meat with garlic, pepper, cumin and salt to taste.  Brown over medium heat with 1/2 cup diced onion.  Drain well and you’re ready to top your tortilla chips.
