Hints & Tips
This easy-to-make nacho dish is a family favorite. My family liked to eat this nacho dish while watching Monday night football. This
traditional nacho dish is also perfect for a Super Bowl Party or any other get
together with friends. This recipe can easily be varied to your family's taste. These nachos are decadent,
delicious, quick and easy to prepare, and so delicious!

Monday Night Football Nacho Recipe
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
1 pound extra-lean ground beef (hamburger)*
1 package taco seasoning mix or 1/2 cup diced jalapeno
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans or black beans
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese***
Corn or tortilla chips
1 head lettuce, chopped
Optional Topping Ideas:
Avocado slices or
chile pepper rings
Chopped fresh tomatoes (preferably seeded), diced
Taco Sauce or
Sliced green onions (scallions)
* Ground chicken could be substituted, if you desire.
Vary the hotness of the nachos to your taste.
** You can substitute with a variety of different cheeses,
such as hot pepper cheese, or Monterery Jack cheese.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add ground beef and taco seasoning
mix or chile peppers; sauté until brown. Remove from heat and drain off any fat
On individual serving plates or a large ovenproof platter, spread the refried beans,
cooked ground beef, onion, and cheddar cheese. Arrange corn chips around sides of dish.
In a microwave oven or conventional oven, heat just until cheese starts to melt. Remove from oven.
To serve, top with lettuce and any toppings of your choice (see Optional Topping
Ideas above). NOTE: I sometimes place the prepared
toppings in individual bowls and let everyone choose their toppings to add.
Makes 4 servings.
