  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 envelope dry taco seasoning mix
  • 14.5 oz can black beans
  • 1 large bag tortilla chips
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup sliced fresh or jarred jalapeno peppers
  • 2-4 cups shredded monterey jack cheese


  • Brown the ground chuck and drain any fat. Add 2/3 cup of water, the taco seasoning mix and bring to a boil. Cook 4-5 minutes. (If making ahead, cool, cover and refrigerate this mixture until you are ready to make your nachos.)
  • To assemble your nachos, put a layer of tortilla chips in the bottom of a baking sheet or large pan. Sprinkle half of the ground beef mixture and half of the black beans over first layer of chips. Sprinkle about 1-2 cups shredded cheese over the top. Add another layer of chips, meat mixture, and beans and top with the remainder of the cheese.
  • Add a few dollops of sour cream, a few spoonfuls of salsa and top with jalapeno slices.
  • Put under the broiler and cook until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Watch it carefully! This will only take 1-3 minutes.


Here is the secret to good nachos. Add your ingredients in layers to ensure that all chips are covered in something yummy!
