But, I didn't want to go spend money at Taco Bell when it's something that is so easily made at home.
This recipe may be a little different to what you're used to getting, for one, there are no refried beans and once the family and I got over that shock, we dove right in and finished that whole casserole dish in record time. The hubby and kids announced it was better than Taco Bell.....I'll just let you be that judge of that :)
1 pound lean ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 small onion, diced
2 small tomatoes, diced
1 sliced, jalapeno
Shredded Cheese, I like Cheddar or the Monterey Jack mix
In a skillet, brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning
On a casserole dish (mine was slightly smaller than a 9x 13 but you can also use a deep pie dish), layer the nachos as follows:
Tortilla chips, about 1 cup of cheese, beef mixture, diced tomatoes, diced onions, jalapenos. Sprinkle more cheese on top, again this is up to you how much depending on what your family likes.
Pop under the broiler until the cheese is nice and melted. Serve with a few dollops of sour cream.
NOTE: I love that with this recipe, I can make more or less nachos as is needed. I can make a single serving or I can make double or even triple the batch if I have more people coming over.
