Nachos

I got the idea for this recipe from my friend Karen! We had nachos at her house one night for dinner and they were SO yummy! So you know when I love something somebody makes, I gotta make it myself so this is my version of Karen nachos:

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees

So I used this recipe for the meat for my nachos:

just in case you don’t feel like going to the link here’s the recipe:
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

So what I used for my nachos in the picture above is:
Sour cream
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce – I mixed the sauce from the peppers with the sour cream to make a spicy sour cream to
1 yellow onion, chopped
Corn Chips
Jalapenos
1 can black beans
1 small can black olives
Tapatio, or your favorite hot sauce
Taco Seasoning
Freshly grated extra sharp cheddar cheese, About 2 cups
1 avocado, chopped up
1 pound ground beef
Green chilies, chopped
tomatoes, chopped
Juice from a Lime or limes

So chop up a yellow onion, set aside (I used 1/2 of the onion for the meat and 1/2 to top the nachos with)

Then grab your ground beef, I used about a pound and threw it in a large cast iron skillet, heated to medium high heat

Then sprinkle the cheese over the chips, I was VERY generous with the cheese. I mean it is nachos!

place pan in the oven and bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and everything is warmed and all melty and yummy

then serve desired amount of nachos on a plate and then top the nachos with chopped tomatoes, avocado, onion and jalapeno (I forgot them on mine) and I also added some of the spicy sour cream I made. Also squeezed the juice of one lime over everything.
