I found this in a 1976 Sunset Hors d'oeuveres cookbook and have been making it ever since. We sometimes make a meal out of it. If you don't want to use the chorizo, you can use all ground beef.

  1. Crumble beef and sausage in a frying pan. Add onion and cook on high heat, stirring until meats are browned. Discard any fat; season with salt and liquid hot pepper seasoning to taste.
  2. Spread beans in a shallow 10 x 15 dish/pan (or other similar oven proof dish with equivilalent area). Top evenly with meat. Sprinkle chilies over bean and meat mixture, cover evenly with cheese and drizzle with taco sauce.
  3. Cover and chill if made ahead.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until very hot throughout.
  5. Remove from oven and quickly garnish with some or all of the garnishes.
  6. Serve with your favorite taco type chips.

This is absolutely the best nachos recipe. I was so happy to find it posted here. I've been making these nachos for my family since 1976 when Sunset magazine featured it -- my kids always ask for this for Super Bowl Sunday. We have always used Silva's linguica instead of the chorizo. Definitely a keeper!
