You want a family game night and culinary challenge? Just tell your family you’re making nachos. Then say you must come to a compromise on ingredients. We decided on this yummy version.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 whole yellow onion, diced
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Tortilla chips
- 1-1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 6 whole roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 whole jalapeno, diced finely
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 whole avocado (pitted and diced)
- Salsa verde
In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and half the onion. Cook it until starting to soften, then add the ground beef. Cook the meat until it’s totally browned, then drain the fat. Add the chili powder, paprika, cumin, crushed red pepper, and salt.
To build the nachos, place a layer of tortilla chips on a platter or plate. Top with a layer of the beef, tomatoes, jalapeno, and cheese. Repeat process twice more. You may also place the platter into a 325 degree oven if it’s heatproof. Just leave it in until cheese is melted.
