Nachos

For those who don’t know, nachos is a dish that originated out of Mexico. Traditionally it is just tortilla chips covered with a cheese based sauce. However, in this recipe will be doing a variant that makes use of refried beans, salsa, and some ground beef.

If you’re not a fan of ground beef, you can just omit from the recipe or replace with different meat such as shredded chicken or pork. You can leave the meat out entirely if you would prefer to not have any meat in there at all.

Cooking Tips

  • If you need to make the nachos in a real rush, you can use a microwave but this will probably result in soggy nachos and may not taste nearly as good.
  • If you don’t have any taco seasoning in the cupboard, then you can make some from scratch if you feel like it.
  • Homemade nachos are not only great tasting, but you have the freedom to change it to whatever you like best. Experiment and work out what combination of flavors work best for you.
