Easy Breezy ~ Nacho Cheesy

Hey ya'll

I'm going to get better about posting. I have to remember to take pics because I'm certainly eating everyday LOL!

This is a simple, easy, quick cheap plate of nachos I made for me and a friend for lunch on Saturday. I am sooo glad I worked out before I ate this! It looks super fattening but it's a little bit healthy.

The players:

You will need:
1/2 can Low Sodium Chili Beans I tried these for the first due to the lower sodium. I usually use's chili beans
Medium Salsa Con Queso of all the cheese sauces I 've tried this store brand Saf.eway is my favorite.
La Victoria Salsa Suprema (medium heat)
Sour cream
Jalapenos (not shown)
You could also add diced tomato and olives (I was out)
1/4 package of Ground beef (not shown)
and tortilla chips. I prefer Santitas. They taste less salty than other brands.

Brown the ground beef or turkey if you prefer.
Season meat with onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
Add 1/4 of a taco mix packet. If you need a bit more salt flavor add a shot of garlic salt. As you can see I like flavor.

Heat the beans in a boiler, add two shakes of chili powder. Allow beans to come to a full boil then turn down heat to low to simmer.

Arrange chips on plate. Pour on heated cheese sauce, add ground beef, chili beans, salsa and sour cream in that order. Add jalapenos here if wanted.

Voila! Nachos
my guests plate looked so pretty I had to take a picture

so nice I had to take it twice!

There you have it Easy Cheesy Nachos!

I don't eat nachos that often, but they are really good and you can change em up all the time depending on what you have in the house. My brother makes the bomb nachos and his secret ingredient.......cream cheese. He uses the real shredded cheese along with some little globs of cream cheese throughout along with fresh jalapenos cut up. You should try it, sounds weird I know.

BTW- I found this really good/easy crockpot recipe for chicken soft tacos. I made them this week and they were GOOD! I also made some Szechuwan pork that was delicious! If you want the recipes I will forward them to you. :)
