Take your basic nacho recipe and give it a twist and shout and see what you come up with.

We came up with this and we named it Ranch Hand Nachos just because of some of the ingredients.

It's fun .. it's tasty and it was quick to make.

We served it over a bed of Fritos but if you prefer to omit the Fritos it would be great on a bed of shredded lettuce.

Top with your favorite garnishes and dig in !

How to Make Ranch Hand Nachos

Step-by-Step

  1. In small bowl combine the BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard and chili powder. Whisk until well blended then set aside.
  2. Shred the cheeses and combine in one bowl then set aside.
  3. In large pot cook the ground beef, onion and green bell pepper over medium heat until the beef is done and the onion and pepper are tender. Drain really well then return the meat mixture to the pot.
  4. Add the sauce mixture, baked beans and corn to the beef mixture and heat over low heat.
  5. Once the mix is heated through sprinkle half of the cheese blend into the pot. Stir then cover until the cheese has melted.
  6. Get a plate or a bowl and lay down either a bed of Fritos or shredded lettuce if you are going in that direction.

    Top with a scoop of the beef mixture then top with the remaining cheese.

    Garnish as desired and enjoy.
