American Mexican Nachos Grande

If my kids have a request for Sunday dinner I know that it is going to be Nachos.

They love them and the hotter the better. My stomach does not allow me to be a spicy person so I put the toppings on that I want and put the others as a side.

I never have leftovers and it is so easy to fix. It is a complete meal when I make it...and the only other thing I serve with it is dessert.

You can use ground turkey and the topping can be such a wide variety.

Enjoy.

How to Make American Mexican Nachos Grande

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown ground beef with onion and green pepper in a large skillet. Add salsa, refried beans, water, taco seasoning, and spices. Combine well. Bring to a boil and turn off.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Layer chips on a large cookie sheet and pour the meat mixture over the chips evenly so they are all covered.
  4. Add your choice of cheese being very generous covering all the meat and chips. If you want to make it a little more spicy, add the pepper jack. It is optional. My kids love it.
