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!

Also check out my delicious Layered Nacho Dip - Beef Nachos - This very addictive nacho dip is so good! It disappears so quickly when I serve it to family and friends. Great to take to a party.

Monday Night Football Nacho Recipe:

Recipe Type: Beef, Meat Appetizer, Guacamole, Tomato Salsa, Cheese
Cuisine: Southwest
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 chile peppers**
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans or black beans
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese***
Corn or tortilla chips
1 head lettuce, chopped

* 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.

Optional Topping Ideas:

Avocado slices or Guacamole
Sour Cream
Sliced Olives
Jalapeno chile pepper rings
Chopped fresh tomatoes (preferably seeded), diced
Taco Sauce or Tomato Salsa
Sliced green onions (scallions)


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 and discard.

On individual serving plates or a large ovenproof platter, spread the refried beans, cooked ground beef, sliced 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.
