Debra’s No Naked Nachos


When Debra and I would order nachos at a restaurant, invariably the nachos would appear with a layer of cheese and toppings but after just several trips to the platter, all that remained was bare, nacho chips – we decided to remedy that


1 package of good nacho chips

2 lbs of ground beef

2 packages of Old El Paso taco seasoning mix

1 can refried beans

1 can beef broth

2 lbs of fine shredded cheese (Mexican blend is good)

2 bunches of scallions

Diced fresh tomatoes

Shredded lettuce


Mexican Crema



In a large skillet brown the ground beef * drain of the excess fat * add the taco seasoning mix and combine well * add in refried beans * cut with some of the beef broth * you want to mix it until the mixture is creamy * let stand for about 30 minutes * line a sheet tray with foil * put down a single layer of nacho chips * cover the chips with the meat mixture * now comes the cheese – do not skimp * into a preheated, 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes * remove and top with the scallions, lettuce, tomatoes * serve salsa and crema on the side * enjoy the “no naked nachos”
