Simple Nachos Snack

Simple Nachos Snack

Every now and then I want something meaty and cheesy and crunchy for a snack. Kind of like Nachos but without all the mess and the work in making them.

So one night I grabbed a bag of tortilla chips and thought to myself, "You know what might be good on these chips?

My answer was ground beef. But then I asked myself, "But what will keep the ground beef from falling off the chip when I pick it up?" The answer of course was CHEESE. 


So I got out some shredded Cheddar for flavor and some Mozzarella for that cheesy pull and sprinkled it all over the place. Then I needed to melt the cheese so I popped it in the microwave for 2 minutes and all that glorious cheese melted over that delicious ground beef on top of those paper thin warm crispy tortilla chips. OMG. Delicious! 

Oh you can add your other toppings.... avocado, salsa, guacamole, onions, red and green bell peppers, tomatoes, Jalapenos, whatever. But for a quick snack, I pass all that stuff and like them just like this. This is my go to.

Simple Nacho Snack

1 lb. lean ground beef

½ yellow onion, diced

Salt and pepper to taste

Tortilla Chips, about 6-7 cups

2 cups of Cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups of Mozzarella, shredded

Heat a large skillet over medium-heat. Add Ground Beef and onion and cook for about 10 minutes, breaking the beef into crumbles. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Note: if you want spicy, add 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning. Remove drippings and add drained beef to a paper line plate or bowl. 

Add the tortilla chips to a large plate or platter. Top with the Ground Beef Mixture, then the shredded cheeses. Place the plate in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Remove from the oven and serve as is or with the toppings of your choice!
