These are not the typical nachos with the melted cheese and jalapeno slices. This is my version of nachos, try'll like them.


Tortilla Chips
1 lb ground beef

1 small onion, chopped

2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped


Refried Beans (beans take a while to cook, so do this in advance)

Fresh salsa (Get recipe here)

Guacamole (Get recipe here)

Sour cream


To cook the meat: In a pan, begin cooking the meat, add salt. When meat is almost done, add the chopped onions and jalapenos, finish cooking and set aside.

To cook beans: All you need is dry beans, water and salt. Wash beans and place them in a pot with enough water (water evaporates pretty fast so make sure you add enough from the start), add salt. It will take about two hours to cook the beans unless you are using a pressure cooker (if you do, the process is much faster). When the beans are soft, you are ready to mash them. You can add a little bit of olive oil to the pan where you'll mash the beans but you don't have to. Begin scooping out the beans from the pot and put them in the pan. Make sure you add enough juice from the beans so that the refried beans don't turn out dry.

Once you have all the food ready, you can begin serving your nachos. I personally like to dish up mine like in the picture above: chips, beans, meat and then salsa, guacamole, and sour cream on top. My husband on the other hand likes to dish everything on his plate but the chips because he likes the chips really crunchy. Enjoy!!
