- ground beef
- taco seasoning
- chili pepper
- tortilla chips
- shredded cheese
- whatever else you like on nachos
Brown the ground beef on the stove. When it’s close to done, start the oven preheating to 425°F. Get out a large baking sheet and spread a thick layer of tortilla chips on it.
Add seasoning to the beef, and whatever else you want: I like diced jalapeños, but T hates them, so I forewent those. I did add some salsa con queso. The benefit of mixing all of that in with the beef is that you get maximal even distribution with fewest passes of sprinkling things over the chips.
Spread some shredded cheese over top, then another layer of tortilla chips and another layer of beef and stuff. Top with the rest of the cheese and stick the whole pan in the oven for 15 minutes. Best served hot – and to a group – as they do not reheat well.
Fresh from the oven, though, they’re delicious.
