These were the best nachos ever! The restaurant style chips did not get soggy. I never thought about adding the cheese and salsa to the meat mixture before adding them to the chips. I used ground beef and taco seasoning- I did not use the onion or bell pepper. For the salsa I used a tomato trinity blend ( tomato, onion, bell pepper) and a dry salsa mix. I love cheese so while I was preparing the meat mixture, I put aluminum foil on a baking sheet, layered one layer of chips and cheese and put in the toaster oven for the chips to warm and the cheese to melt. After the meat was done I added the cheese and salsa (only to one serving). I added the mixture to my heated chips and cheese, covered it with more cheese and re-baked in the toaster oven. When they were done, I added chopped tomatoes, avocado and sour cream. It was awesome!
Made this recipe tonight with a slight variation to suit my pantry. I had no peppers, but made everything else as written, including searing the lean ground beef. That alone increased the flavor factor exponentially. I will be making this again. Itbis a tremendous recipe that stands alone. This is no cheap knock-off of any chain restaurant. Very nice creation Kittencal.
This is a great recipe. The only change I make is to use a cheese sauce made from Velveeta - or from jar, rather than the shredded cheddar. This more closely replicates the actual Taco Bell nachos.
Delicious!!! We usually use package seasoning, but my husband decided to try something different. We were both loved these nachos!
Great nachos! Made as directed using taco seasoning and we really enjoyed this while watching the Super Bowl. Thanks for sharing, Kitten. Made for Best of 2013 Tag.
This was delicious. To make it easier for weeknight preparation, I made the ground beef mixture ahead of time. On Nacho Night I just added beans and salsa and reheated the meat. These turned out great and were loved by all. Made for National Nacho Day. Thanks for sharing.
This recipe is without a doubt the best Nachos Supreme I have ever had, ever! Definitely a five star, and a possible understatement. I added cubed avocado's to mine, and for those of you who like it a little spicier, you could use hot salsa, or some hot sauce drizzled over the top, or your side of the platter, whatever! All I need next time is a bigger platter with 2 inch sides so I can heap it on, and keep it on. I think what ties the knot in this recipe is the meat-sauce. With the cheese, salsa and beans all melted together, it is the yummiest, softest, goopiest taste of almost heaven, (whatever that tastes like), on this side of planet Earth. Thank you for another winner to add into my cookbook. I plan on making this another couple of weeks when the gang is all here. Thank you Kittencal!
I made a simplified version this tonight without the peppers and onions. It was pretty good; but I think it had a little too much salsa. So, next time, I'm thinking about leaving the salsa out completely and just adding it to taste along with the sour cream. Thanks for the recipe!
Kittencal, you did it again!!! Nachos are a tradition for football games at our house and I was getting tired of the "same old" ones ... I didn't change a thing except we serve our chips on the side instead of in with the Nacho (keeps the chips from getting soggy and since there's only 2 of us we have leftovers!). DH is in Nacho Heaven with this one!
