We LOVED this recipe. I must say upfront, that I used ground round instead of ground lamb, because that is what I had on hand. Next time, I will try it with ground lamb. I used about a pound and a quarter of meat, so I increase the amount of chips that I used to about 3/4 of a large bag. These nachos were devine. I really loved the addition of the crushed tomatoes and Mexican chili beans, making this recipe special. The salsa fresca was the perfect meld of flavors and I especially liked it blended in with the mashed avocado. I have some of that mixture left over and will enjoy it with chips today. Yum!!
