Yesterday my daughter wanted nachos and this is what we made and shared as a family at the table while talking about our days!  A great way to share your day and your food!!


This is enough for at least 6 people.

1 ½ pounds ground beef

2 medium Onions

3 cloves of minced garlic

Black olives

Green onion chopped

4 large tomatoes

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups shredded lettuce (I forgot the lettuce but will include it in on the needed items)

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp chili pepper

1 14oz can black beans drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper

1 large bag of tortilla chips (I had a 13oz bag)


In a skillet brown the ground beef over medium high heat for about ten minutes before draining off the excess fat. Add the black beans, cumin, garlic, half of the tomatoes, half of the onions and the chili powder and simmer on low heat for another ten minutes. On a large oven safe platter (or baking dish) spread out the chips and top with a layer of cheese, then the meat and bean mixture. Add cheese to the top and broil on high for a minute or two until melted.

Add the reserved tomatoes and onions, add sour cream green onion chopped and black olives.

Bon Appetit

  1. That is an amazing looking heap of nacho’s!!! The pictures look great btw! It looks like it doesn’t need the lettuce. You could add salsa too though.


    1. Yes I agree, we were using what we had in the house, and salsa was not on hand =( It was however a great meal and we had fun sharing it!
