Recently I bought 5 pounds of ground beef to save money. It's something I tend to eat a lot of, especially because I love tacos. Therefore I cooked up half a batch with taco seasoning and turned 2 pounds of it into chili. The tacos get old after a while though, so to switch it up I used some of it for taco salad (recipe posted earlier) and some for a great snack whenever you want something substantial but not a true meal.
Whatever toppings you like: cheese, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, etc.
Step 1: Brown the beef and drain off the extra grease. Add in 1/4 cup taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water. Let the beef simmer in the seasoning until all water evaporates and the beef is well seasoned.
Step 2: Heap a handful of nachos onto a plate, and cover with a layer of beef. Then top with whatever you like.
I used salsa that I made and canned myself, so the beef and nachos ($1
or so at Aldi) were the only things paid for. I usually add some
shredded mexican blend cheese too. Enjoy your snack!
