How can you not love Nachos?

Here in our house Nachos are a special treat. Not too often do we allow the girls to have chips for dinner so they get really excited when the adults want Nachos. The recipe is super easy but the results are amazing. Once again we find that it is all about the toppings! The girls are able to pick what they want and we pick what we want.

Beef Nachos


ground beef cooked with Taco Seasoning

cheddar cheese (grated)

black olives (chopped)

onion (chopped small)

fresh jalapenos (seeds and membrane removed and chopped small)

pickled jalapenos

fresh cilantro (chopped)

tomatoes (chopped)

refried beans with a small can of green chilies added (heated on the stove)

The girls usually have cheese, beans, taco meat, and olives...

but we go all out. We call them Garbage Nachos and they are delicious. So if you are ever craving something that is really not that good for you but wonderfully flavored and nice and salty then this is your beast!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

I do, I do, I DO LOVE NACHOS! Yours look delicious. It's a bit of a battle between me and my husband on nacho night, however, because he hates olives and onions (what kind of person hates olives and onions??!!) and I love them! I see that your has plenty of olives... :-)

We solve that by each having our own. That huge pile was all mine!!! He likes his food extra hot so he puts cayenne all over his. See problem solved. Now no more fighting on Nacho Night!
