These classic Tex-Mex nachos are loaded to the max! Avoid soggy nachos by briefly baking them before topping with cheese, seasoned beef, refried beans, guacamole, and salsa. They’re a great snack, party appetizer, or even casual weeknight dinner.
Nachos have always been my “I’m too tired to cook after grocery shopping” dinner. We’ve all been there, am I right? You’ve spent a fair amount of your paycheck on groceries, but you’re so tired you need a quick meal to throw together.
Nachos have it all: protein, carbs, veggies, and—the most important thing—cheese! They’re also fully customizable to suit a solo diner or a group gathered for chow.
Looking for a crowd-pleasing appetizer? Try this Super Nacho Platter recipe! Here’s what you need:
