Epic Beef Nachos Supreme
How to make Epic Beef Nachos Supreme
– You need to make this epic beef nachos supreme at your next game day. Seasoned ground beef, refried beans, cheese, tomatoes and green onions make such a great flavor combination.
– Have you got your menu all set for Super Bowl Sunday this weekend? If not, you do now. 😉👊🏻
– These nachos were inspired by my teenage days when we used to frequent Taco Bell. My repeat order was beef nachos supreme.
– This recipe is the next level version of that. Way better quality and taste, with the same familiar flavor combination.🙌🏻 Sturdy chips, y’all. You want to start with a good, sturdy tortilla chip. None of the thin and crispy ones.🙅🏼♀️
– Taco Seasoning (or you can use one packet/ serving of store-bought taco seasoning)
– 1 pound ground beef
– 1/2 yellow onion diced
– 2 bags tortilla chips (16 ounces each)
– 1 can refried beans
– 16 ounces shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar and Monterey jack)
– 3 roma tomatoes diced
– 2 to 3 green onions sliced
– Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.
– Meanwhile on the stovetop, brown the ground beef and diced onions over medium-high heat until fully cooked (about 8 minutes) and drain.
– Return the beef to the pan, and sprinkle on the taco seasoning.
– Stir in 3/4 cup water, bring it to a simmer, reduce heat and simmer until the liquid mostly evaporates, about 5 minutes.
– While the beef is cooking, add a generous layer of chips to two baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
– Spoon on refried beans, half on each pan. These are thick, but I just add spoon fulls all over the chips. (The spoon fulls will spread with the heat of the oven.)
– Spoon on half the ground beef to each pan of chips.
– Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
– Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
– Remove from the oven, and sprinkle on diced tomatoes and green onions.
– Serve immediately.
– Make sure your tortilla chips are thick and sturdy. NO thin ones. I recommend Costco’s Kirkland organic tortilla chips, or a similar brand.
– I wrote this recipe with entertaining in mind. If you are making this for a smaller crown (4 to 6), I think half the recipe would work just fine. Just change the number of servings on the recipe card to adjust all measurements.
