Do you ever crave Mexican style food? I seem to get a craving once in a while that just won’t go away. You know, the kind of craving where you can eat something for every day of the week? I am that way about Mexican right now. There aren’t many vegetables I like to eat warm but refried is one I can eat anytime. The fact that most of my Mexican favorites also have loads of melted cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and cubes of tomato doesn’t stop me either! I have… Well….confession time….. Been on an anti meat kick lately. I know. This born and raised met and potatoes girl is swearing off meat. Since I am so picky about veggies this just blows my family away. So what was the point of all that? These nachos are GREAT!
These Ultimate Nachos are great anytime. They are a hearty and healthy choice for lunch or dinner. A snap to serve while watching TV, playing cards, entertaining or enjoying the BIG GAME.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 package about 1 ounce taco seasoning mix

- 5 cups tortilla chips
- 2 cups Pace® Chunky Salsa
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese about 4 ounces
- 1/3 cup sliced jalapeño peppers

Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Stir the water and taco seasoning in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Heat the beans according to the package directions.
Place the chips on a large platter. Layer the beef mixture, beans, salsa, cheese and peppers over the chips. Add a dollop of sour cream.
